Penticton breweries launch collaboration beer in celebration of Beer Week

‘The Penticton Seven’ is described as a hazy pale ale with Ekuanot and El Dorado hops

The City of Penticton has officially proclaimed Oct. 16 to 24 as Penticton Beer Week. In celebration of the week Penticton’s seven breweries worked together to make a special collaboration beer, which is now available at various locations.

The beer, dubbed “the Penticton Seven,” is described as a hazy pale ale with Ekuanot and El Dorado hops. It’s available now in 4-packs of 473ml cans at select private liquor stores throughout B.C.

It will also be on tap at all of Penticton’s seven breweries and select restaurants. You can view the list of locations that carry the Penticton Seven here.

Beer week manager Kim Lawton said she’s proud to be able to present the collaboration beer despite facing many pandemic-related obstacles.

“Despite all of the challenges this year, we decided it was important to celebrate Penticton’s craft beer scene with a Penticton Beer Week designed to work within the current pandemic situation,” she said.

A portion of the proceeds raised from the beer sales will be donated to the BC Hospitality Foundation (BCHF). The BCHF is a registered charity that raises funds to support those in the hospitality industry facing a financial crisis due to a health condition.

Executive director of BCHF, Dana Harris said all of the funds will go towards assisting hospitality workers in the Okanagan.

“The generosity of the brewers involved benefits those in need right in their own community,” said Harris.

There will also be a collection of Beer Week events and theme days at local breweries and restaurants, as well as a few virtual events.

The events and theme days include:

Oct. 16 – Black Friday at Slackwater Brewing

Oct. 17 – Sour Saturday at Cannery Brewing

Oct. 17 – New Reality Beer Launch at Highway 97 Brewery

Oct. 20 – Tuesday Night Trivia at Slackwater Brewing
