Cheers! For Charity Presents “Beer 4 Boobs” An Event Where Local Brewers Help Fight Breast Cancer

Toronto, ON

For the 2nd year in a row, local brewers collaborate to produce unique one off beers for a cause - but this time it will be twice as good!

On two separate days at two separate bars in two separate cities, a group of passionate local brewers, both female and male alike, will work together to help fight Breast Cancer. Starting at The Rhino (1249 Queen St. W, Toronto) on Sunday April 7th, 2013 and continuing on to The Casbah (306 King St W, Hamilton) on Sunday April 14th, 2013, a series of unique one-off kegs and casks will be tapped in honor of the event “Beer 4 Boobs”. Both events will feature the same selection and volume of specially created craft beers.

“We are excited to host the second annual Beer 4 Boobs event, says Kaitlin Vandenbosch- co-founder of Cheers for Charity and Beer 4 Boobs. “Our first event at bar Volo was a huge success.  This year we have been able to expand to include two locations and triple the amount of beer at each event due the enormous support from the brewing community in Toronto and across South-Western Ontario.”

Every beer on tap at during these two events will be brewed by a member of Ontario’s brewing industry. Brewers from: Amsterdam Brewing Co., Black Oak, Mill Street, Oast House, Railway City, Beyond the Pale, Camerons, Niagara College, The Ship, Grand River, Bellwoods, Silversmith, Trafalgar, Indie Ale House, Cheshire Valley, Granite and a few others have all generously donated their time, ingredients, and pilot systems to collaborate special one-off beers to be served only at the “Beer 4 Boobs” events.  “We are all looking forward to serving our collaborative beers on a behalf of a great cause”, says Morgan Wielgosz of Amsterdam Brewing Co. “2012 was a huge success.  We hope our beers can really make a difference.”

Tickets will be $25.00 each and will include 1 sample beer ticket, and a commemorative sampling glass. Proceeds from ticket sales, raffle and beer will be donated locally.  Proceeds from the Toronto event will be donated to PYNK, a breast cancer program for young women under 40 at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. While proceeds from the Hamilton event will go to “Breast Cancer Support Services” an organization that provides comfort and support to women and families living with breast cancer in the Greater Hamilton & Halton regions.
