Do Good for the community.
That's the goal of Penticton Beer Week 2021. Benefiting the Ooknakane Friendship Centre, this release is made possible through breweries and sponsors committed to humanity.
Penticton, BC, Canada – (October 15th - 23rd, 2021)
To celebrate Penticton Beer Week, all eight craft breweries in town came together for one special collab beer, Do Good. That's a great thing in and of itself.
Brewed by the community for the community, Do Good is a honey sour that's slightly tart and sweet, the perfect beer to celebrate what makes Penticton special.
But what's better than good beer? Good deeds.
Proceeds will support The Ooknakane Friendship Centre, an aboriginal not-for-profit committed to providing holistic, culturally-driven programs to strengthen people of all nations. Services like this are integral and deserve our attention.
Altro Labels was one of six sponsors for the week and provided label services.
Enjoy some before and after shots of the labels.
