REVIEW: NUTBuster Prostate Cancer Fundraiser 2016, Village Brewery
What do Bill Brooks, Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart and Brett Wilson all have in common? Ok, besides that their names start with Bs. They all participated in Village Brewery’s NUTBuster Prostate Cancer Fundraiser.

So for the last four years Village Brewing has put on a fundraiser where they raise money for Prostate Cancer. This year they had three local people come and make some beers that contained Prairie Oysters (yes that is correct and not the first year they have done this). Each Cask contained two of them and also ingredients from local celebrities.
As well each glass cost $100.00 and all proceeds went to the fundraiser. This year Village Brewing raised over $15,000. Thanks to some very awesome people, I managed to raise $100.00 to have a glass, I even promised them I’d film it live on Facebook (which I did).
So a HUGE Cheers goes out to Jim Button and the crew at Village for putting this together, Bottlescrew Bills for hosting it, and to Bill Brooks, Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart, and Brett Wilson for making the beers. Here is the video I took with Brew Games and our review of two of the three beers!
(Casks made by:
Bill Brooks: Salty chocolate with a Village Blacksmith base
Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart: Banana with a Village Blonde base
Brett Wilson: Peanut with a Black and Tan base (3/4 Blonde 1/4 Blacksmith)
Each cask used two testicles this year—more appropriate, and the three testicles were a bit meaty last year.)
REVIEW: Beer Revolution, Calgary
Beer Revolution is a great place to go for food and a drink or three, quite a great atmosphere and some amazing dry ribs!
REVIEW: Bowen Island Brewing, Adventure Pack
These Bowen Island Brewery beer reviews are the last of the Beer Maven’s summer series called “Patio Crushables”. Does that mean summer is ending? BOO! Well… good thing we still have beer.
What Made Me Get Into Reviewing Craft Beer?
“The Craft Beer Movement” is something that has been growing for sometime. People wanted different things, and brewers wanted to think outside of the box. Seeing beers in Europe evolve into masterpieces, North America wanted in! I know that when I was in liquor stores in Alberta a few years back, I saw the shelves
