Microbrews for Microphones 2017
March 3, 2017 by PCR

Peach City Radio - CFUZ is pleased to announce that the local craft beer industry has stepped up to support the establishment of a community radio station in Penticton. During the month of March, beer lovers who fill up their growlers at Bad Tattoo Brewing Company, Barley Mill Brew Pub and Bistro, Cannery Brewing, Detonate Brewing, and Firehall Brewery will be helping to raise funds for Peach City Radio.

A growler is a re-fillable 2 litre glass jug that can be used to purchase local beers. Between March 1st and 31st, partial proceeds from each growler fill at participating locations will be donated to help finish outfitting our new studio in the Cannery Trade Centre. The studio is coming along nicely, but more equipment is needed in order to be ready for FM broadcast including, of course, quality microphones.

"We're excited that Microbrews for Microphones has expanded this year to include five local breweries" says Peach City Radio Vice President Claire Thompson. "We're encouraging everyone to visit these 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."

Throughout March Peach City Radio will be sharing information about participating breweries and running fun contests on our online stream and Facebook Page. The total amount of money raised through Microbrews for Microphones will be announced at the 2017 Fest of Ale in April.
