Craft Beer Alert! Cask nights at Hastings Racecourse

I’m sure you guys were all following along last weekend when I had the chance to spend the day at Hastings Racecourse. It was a great day and I’ll be doing a draw for a Hastings Racecourse prize pack in the next few days so stay tuned!

While I was at the track I noticed a banner that said Hastings has a cask night. It’s a new program that just launched a week or 2 ago and it’s awesome to see such a unique place jumping on the craft beer bandwagon! Cask night is every Friday night at 7:30pm and this week they’re featuring Coal Harbour Brewing Company‘s 311 Helles Lager.

We’ll have 2 casks, one from Tariq at Big Ridge and one from Derrick at Whistler Brewhouse. Tariq’s cask is his Sullivan Porter dry hopped with Brambling Cross. Derrick’s cask is his Alta Lake Ale dry hopped with Sorachi Ace. You can also try Tariq’s latest seasonal which is a single hopped Vienna style lager, I haven’t had it yet but I hear it’s outstanding!

Surrey Beer Club Movember cask night!

Here we are, a few weeks into the month now known as Movember and my upper lip is nestled in a luxurious hairy moustache that women and potential employers find quite off putting. It’s all worth it though as prostate cancer and male mental health are very worthy causes. In honour of Movember I am once again teaming up with the crew at Big Ridge Brewing Co. in Surrey to have a Surrey Beer Club cask night!

Join us on Thursday November 22nd for a great cause and a great time! There will be a 50/50 draw with all proceeds going towards Movember. There will also be 2 casks of delicious craft beer to enjoy alongside Big Ridge’s stellar lineup of house made brews. The first is Big Ridge Brewmaster Tariq Khan’s amazing Batterhead ESB dry hopped with Columbus and cascade. The other cask is Surrey BC’s own Russell Brewing, we’ll have a cask of their porter dry hopped with cascade hops. Awesome cold weather, warm you  right down to your cockles beer.

The casks should be tapped around 6:00 pm and the Big Ridge shuttle bus will be available for those who’ve had too much fun to drive! Call 778-938-7433 to arrange pick up, the bus will be available at the King George Skytrain station for those coming from the “other” side of the Fraser River 😉

If you can’t make it but would like to donate you can do so HERE!

I can’t wait to show you my Mo!!

Movember 2012, join team WFLBC!

Ladies and gentlemen Movember is here. I look forward to this glorious month every year and religiously shave of my trademark chin warmer in favour of a hairy upper lip. This year Movember has expanded from it’s original mandate of raising prostate cancer awareness and is now championing male mental health as well.  Both of these causes are seldom talked about and adding mental health to the Movember agenda is a great move.

So what can you do to help? I’m glad you asked! It’s great to donate money and if you can I would be most appreciative (you can donate HERE) but what I really want is for you to join my team! Team WFLBC is looking to recruit Mo Bro’s and Mo Sista’s to help us raise money. Hit up you friends, your family, even your co workers and people on Facebook you haven’t seen in 20 years. You don’t have to grow a moustache to make a difference, I’ll be doing that on behalf of the team. If you want to grow a Mo please do and post pictures on the team page! Ladies, you are my secret weapon, guys who are afraid to grow a Mo will gladly fork over a few bucks to a awesome woman who supports men’s health!

Knowledge is power, moustache is king. Join my Movember team HERE. We’ll be holding a Movember Cask night fundraiser at Big Ridge Brewing Co. in Surrey on November 22nd. There will be amazing craft beer, great people, fine moustaches and a donation box! I’ll post all the details in the next week or so.

Thanks in advance for your amazing support!!
