We partnered up with our good friends at Last Best Brewing & Distillery and the wonderful people at BIg Brothers and Big Sisters of Calgary to launch two new beers in support of the foundation. We made the Big Brother New England Pale Ale at Banded Peak under Al Horner and Russ Sedin and the Big Sister Sour at Last Best under Natasha Peiskar. Both beers are available at Banded Peak and Last Best and a few participating bars and liquor stores. The best part about these beers is that a dollar from every litre produced has been donated to BBBS during the All-Star for Kids campaign where every dollar donated in August is matched. So there really is no better time to donate then now!
Many young people in Calgary are facing adversities that put them at risk of not reaching their full potential. BBBS provides mentors that form relationships with their mentees that develop their social emotional learning and executive functioning skills. These critical developmental relationships help young people to become resilient, and give them the confidence to achieve more. and leads to long-lasting benefits. Studies have shown that for every dollar donated to BBS the return is almost eighteen fold!
If you are interested in becoming a mentor you can come by Banded Peak on August 20th starting at 5PM to meet some mentors and the BBBS team and find out what they are all about and try some of the delicious beers we made.
