Penticton’s breweries have joined forces to brew the perfect beer just in time for Penticton Beer Week.

The limited-edition beer called ‘Do Good’ is being sold province-wide to raise funds for Ooknakane Friendship Centre in Penticton. The centre is an Indigenous not-for-profit society that is “committed to providing holistic, culturally-driven programs and services designed to support, educate and strengthen people of all nations,” states their website.

The beer is a collaboration with Penticton’s Bad Tattoo Brewing, Barley Mill Brew Pub, Cannery Brewing, Highway 97 Brewing, Neighbourhood Brewing, Slackwater Brewing and Tin Whistle Brewing.

“It’s a golden sour with honey and citrus,” said Mike Coghill, Neighbourhood Brewing founder.

With a goal to raise at least $2,000 for the Ooknakane Friendship Centre, Penticton Beer Week Manager Kim Lawton and her team tapped into their creativity to mark the week.

“Penticton Beer Week is a real celebration of craft beers,” said Lawton.

Patrons can enjoy activities such as trivia, live music, bingo and a beer run. There’s a different event happening each day until Oct. 23. For a full schedule visit their Facebook page.
