Microbrews For Microphones Kick-Off
February 29, 2016 by PCR

The local craft beer industry has stepped up to support the establishment of a community radio studio in Penticton. In the month of March, beer lovers who fill up their growlers at Bad Tattoo, Cannery Brewing, and The Barley Mill Brew Pub & Sports Bistro will be helping to raise funds for Peach City Radio.

What's a growler? It's a re-fillable 2 litre glass jug that can be used to purchase local beers. Between March 1 & 31, part proceeds from each growler fill at participating locations will be donated to Peach City Radio.

"We've enjoyed getting to know our local microbreweries and are happy that they have joined up with us for this friendly competition and fundraiser" says Peach City Radio's Support Committee chair Jackie Del Rizzo. "We're encouraging everyone to visit these local tasting rooms, fill up a growler with their favourite brew, and know that they are supporting both the local craft beer industry and Peach City Radio at the same time."

Points will be earned by each location based on the number of growler fills over the course of the month, and Peach City Radio will present the coveted Microbrews for Microphones trophy for Pentictonís favourite beer at the 2016 Fest of Ale in April. Last year, Bad Tattoo took the top honours... will they be unseated as the top growler-filling Microbrew in Penticton this year?
