The BC Beer Awards officially announced this year’s 2022 community brew – Back In Session, a blackberry and lemon salted tart beer that balances a tart acidity with hints of sea salt.
Once again the team has teamed up with their good friends at BREWHALL and Powell Brewery to brew this year’s collaboration beer. This 4% salted sour is refreshing, bright and full of juicy blackberry and lemon.
The name Back In Session helps celebrate life returning to a normality to which we have become accustomed. Get those books, binders and beers ready for another year because the BC Beer Awards are back in session!
The theme aligns with the BCBA’s commitment to supporting the next generation of changemakers in our province’s beer community through our support of Diversity In Brewing. DIB is an initiative working to increase visibility and inclusivity in the craft beer industry by providing scholarships for self-identifying BIPOC and LGBTQ2S+ students in Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s brewing program.
This year’s proceeds from the Collab beer will also help support the BC Hospitality Foundation – a charity that raises funds to support people in the hospitality industry who are facing a financial crisis due to a health condition. If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that the hospitality industry has definitely taken a hit and they want to give back.
Back In Session was brewed at Powell Brewery with the generous help of sponsors, Altro Labels, Brewers Supply Group, Hops Connect Canada, Imperial Yeast, Keg Share & Vessel Packaging Co. The label art was created by Michelle Lee at Broadview Creative.
There are still a handful of tickets left for the 2022 BC Beer Awards, which you can purchase HERE.
