Three Breweries Worked Together to Create ‘Ten’, the Official 2019 VCBW Collaboration Beer

The GOODS from Four Winds

Delta, BC | Vancouver Craft Beer Week (VCBW) is B.C.’s biggest celebration of craft beer culture, and returns for its 10th straight year, from May 31 to June 9. To commemorate the 10th annual citywide celebration, VCBW has partnered with Four Winds Brewing Co. (Delta), Dageraad Brewing (Burnaby) and Powell Brewery (Vancouver) to develop the recipe for the official 2019 VCBW Collaboration Beer: Ten.

Ten is a dry-hopped table saison that is bursting with exotic fruit flavours, coming in nice and light at 4.2% ABV, making this an extremely satisfying summer beer. Brewed with tangy Sacch Trois yeast to accentuate the tropical, citrus and stone fruit flavours derived from Sabro and Enigma hops, creating a refreshing and fruit-forward beer. Ten is inspired by historic Belgium classics but brewed with New World hops, creating a very modern tasting beer.

The VCBW Tenth Anniversary Ale will be served on draught at the three collaborating breweries and sold in cans at Four Winds Brewing Co. starting Friday, May 17, just in time for the long weekend. Ten Dry Hopped Table Saison will also be available in four-packs of 473 mL tall cans at select private liquor and beer stores, and on draught at a few chosen bars and restaurants starting May 21. It will also be served in cans at the VCBW 10th Anniversary Kickoff Party at the Beaumont Studios on May 31, and on draught at the VCBW Festival at the PNE Fairgrounds on June 8 and 9. Partial proceeds of all 2019 VCBW Collaboration Beer sales will be donated to the BC Hospitality Foundation, a registered charity that raises funds to support those in the hospitality industry facing financial crisis due to a health issue.

The official 2019 VCBW Collaboration Beer was generously sponsored by West Coast Canning, Canada Malting, Hops Connect, IMS, Glenmore Printing and Chrislan Ceramics.
