VCBW TENTH ANNIVERSARY ALE
The Official 2019 VCBW Collaboration Beer: TEN
Each year, Vancouver Craft Beer Week (VCBW) brings the province’s craft breweries together to brew a beer in the spirit of collaboration, this year, commemorating the city’s 10th annual celebration of craft beer. VCBW partnered with Four Winds Brewing Co, Dageraad Brewing and Powell Brewery to develop the recipe for the official 2019 VCBW Collaboration Beer: Ten. These three award-winning Metro Vancouver breweries were joined at Four Winds by more than 30 breweries from across the province on April 18, 2019, to brew Ten in honour of this milestone year.
The illustration of the number 10 featured on the beer can commemorates Vancouver Craft Beer Week’s 10th anniversary and was created by the eclectic and prolific Canadian artist Luke Ramsey. He was invited to capture the past 10 years of Vancouver Craft Beer Week by connecting a few standout stories in a Rube Goldberg fashion. A Rube Goldberg is a machine that takes a simple task and performs it in the most complicated way, which is how the directors of VCBW identify with their 10-year journey.
TEN: Dry-Hopped Table Saison
Ten is a dry-hopped table saison that is bursting with exotic fruit flavours, coming in nice and light at 4.2% ABV, making this an extremely satisfying summer beer. Brewed with tangy Sacch Trois yeast to accentuate the tropical, citrus and stone fruit flavours derived from Sabro and Enigma hops, creating a refreshing and fruit-forward beer. Ten is inspired by historic Belgium classics but brewed with New World hops, creating a very modern tasting beer.
Ten Dry Hopped Table Saison will be served on draught at the three collaborating breweries and sold in four-packs of 473 mL tall cans at Four Winds Brewing Co. It will also be available in cans at select private liquor and beer stores, and on draught at a few chosen bars and restaurants. Ten will be served in cans at the VCBW 10th Anniversary Kickoff Party at the Beaumont Studios on May 31, and on draught at the VCBW Festival at the PNE Fairgrounds on June 8 and 9.
Partial proceeds of all 2019 VCBW Collaboration Beer sales will be donated to the BC Hospitality Foundation (BCHF), a registered charity that raises funds to support those in the hospitality industry facing financial crisis due to a health issue. The BCHF helps them when all other options have been exhausted. In addition, the BCHF offers a scholarship program to foster the development of the next generation of workers and industry leaders.
