BoomBox Brewing and DL Chicken Collaborate on Special Beer to Benefit Hospitality Workers in Need

The GOODS from The Downlow Chicken Shack

Vancouver, BC | BoomBox Brewing and Downlow Chicken Shack (DL Chicken) have teamed up on a three-day, beer and merchandise drop, with proceeds benefiting the Vancouver Food and Beverage Community (VanFBC) Relief Fund. The Double Dry Hopped (DDH) IPA “hyped” collection is available Thursday, April 9 to 11, 2020 at The American, DL Chicken, and online via BoomBox Brewing.

“We kicked around the idea of a collab beer for a while now,” says Kent Courtice, founder of BoomBox Brewing. “Doug and I are self-proclaimed sneakerheads. The packaging is our cheeky ode to sneaker culture, while raising money for a great cause within our very own community.”

The DDH IPA features the hypest hops Courtice could get, including Nelson Sauvin, Galaxy, Cryo Citra, and Mosaic. Each sip will have tropical, passionfruit, mango, and lychee notes, with fresh crushed gooseberries and spicy black pepper. In addition to the limited-edition beer, fans can also get their hands on t-shirts and specially branded TeKu glassware.

“This is the full package,” adds Doug Stephen, co-owner of DL Chicken and Downlow Burgers. “We definitely had some fun with it! Not only that, we also created the perfect pairing with this beer, a limited-edition burrito. The flavours go well with all the hops.” The Boom Chicken Boom Boom Burrito is available only at The American (926 Main Street) for takeout and delivery.
