Nickel Brook Releases Special Beer to Raise Money for Refugees

Burlington, ON – Nickel Brook Brewing Co. has announced that it will be donating a portion of sales from their next beer release to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR,) to aid refugees in Canada.  The effort is known as ‘Higher Dimension, Higher Cause,’ and continues the company’s history of community service.

“We’ve always been a community-focused company, and wanted to do something to help with the current refugee crisis” president, John Romano said.  “Anyone coming to Canada will be our new neighbours, our new community and we need to show them that we are here to help.  This is our little way of saying welcome home.”

For over 65 years, the UNHCR has been protecting the rights and well-being of refugees worldwide.  Together with partners and communities, the UNHCR works to ensure that everybody has the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge in another country.  Funds received by the UNHCR go directly to supporting the delivery of humanitarian aid to vulnerable refugees around the world.

Higher Dimension, a Belgian Amber dry-hopped with Ella has aromas of bubble gum and candy sugar, which are contrasted with floral and tropical zest characters.  The tropical, spicy hop notes shine up-front, giving way to malt sweetness, balanced against a grapefruit backbone.  The beer will retail for $4.25/bottle, with 75 cents from each bottle being donated directly to the UNHCR.

Saturday, March 4 2017 marks the launch date at the Bottle Shop- 864 Drury Lane, Burlington.  Limited kegs will also be distributed to participating bars and restaurants.  Details of licensees pouring Higher Dimension on draught will be available on Nickel Brook’s social media feeds.
