We’re releasing a brand new beer, and we wanted to do something extra special with it. That’s why we will be donating a portion of sales from every bottle of our new Dry-Hopped Belgian Amber, Higher Dimension to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
We’ve always been a community-focused company, and we wanted to do something to help with the current refugee crisis. Anyone coming to Canada will be our new neighbours, our new community and we need to show them that we are here to help. This is our little way of saying welcome home.
For over 65 years, the UNHCR has been protecting the rights and well-being of refugees worldwide. Together with partners and communities, the UNHCR works to ensure that everybody has the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge in another country. Funds received by the UNHCR go directly to supporting the delivery of humanitarian aid to vulnerable refugees around the world.
Higher Dimension, a Belgian Amber dry-hopped with Ella, has aromas of bubble gum and candy sugar, which are contrasted with floral and tropical zest characters. The tropical, spicy hop notes shine up-front, giving way to malt sweetness, balanced against a grapefruit backbone. The beer will retail for $4.25/bottle, with 75 cents from each bottle being donated directly to the UNHCR.
Higher Dimension will be released Saturday, March 4 2017 at the Bottle Shop- 864 Drury Lane, Burlington. Limited kegs will also be distributed to participating bars and restaurants, who will be donating a portion of every pint to the UNHCR as well. Details of licensees pouring Higher Dimension on draught will be available on our social media feeds.
