Kokanee issues public apology for freak weather storm on the Coquihalla Highway

    The Columbia Brewery introduces Kokanee Glacier Frost

    CRESTON, BC, June 27 /CNW/ - The Columbia Brewery has determined that the
unexpected cold front that hit the Coquihalla this past Monday was caused by
the top secret transport of Glacier Frost, the newest member of the Kokanee
    Glacier Frost is brewed using a secret mountain recipe to create an
incredibly cool and refreshing taste with a crisp finish. It is the first new
offering from Kokanee in more than 15 years.
    With snow banks, snow ball fights and Vancouver's "first ever" ice patio
lounge serving as a frosty back drop, Vancouverites at Malone's Bar and Grill
will be the first in BC to sample Glacier Frost. Just in time for the long
weekend and exclusive to BC, Glacier Frost will be available at participating
retail stores, bars and restaurants.
    "Glacier Frost is part of Kokanee's ongoing commitment to bringing beer
drinkers refreshing new choices," said Kyle Norrington, national brand
manager, Kokanee. "When Columbia Brewery's brewmaster developed this special
mountain recipe and created an incredibly cool tasting lager, we knew we had
the perfect addition to the Kokanee family."
    Glacier Frost is another innovative, fun way to deliver cool refreshment
and great beer experiences to Canadian beer drinkers. It builds on the great
success of Kokanee, Chill Check, Glacier Girl, Fresh Tracks, Free Ride, Summer
and Winter Back Label programs, the unique Kokanee Glacier Draught System as
well as sponsorship of Kokanee Crankworx and The Telus World Ski and Snowboard
