Calgary-based Village Brewery has, from the get go, done its best to promote community.
It donates a portion of its bottom line to community and arts groups, and promotes that push prominently on the Village website.
It has been a positive force in the local craft beer scene, as well as the arts scene.
The new beer from Village looks to bottle that community spirit.
The Village Gardener: Community Involved Ale is being released in very limited quantity.
Just 1,200 one-litre bottles of this locally sourced ale are being produced, so you’ll have to act fast to get one.
The Gardener features “locally sourced malted barley and hops grown in the backyards of Calgarians.”
In return for the goodwill, the Bridgeland residents who helped grow the hops will be getting beer which will be used “in an event to raise funds for the Calgary Horticultural Society.”
Look for bottles of what Village calls “celebration of the community gardener who waters, weeds and nurtures” while it lasts.
