Beer For Boobs: An event in support of Breast Cancer Research
9 Female brewers collaborate to produce one off beers for charity

February 6, 2012 - (Toronto, ON): A group of passionate female brewers from Toronto have come together to produce a series of one-off beers for “Beer For Boobs”, an event at Barvolo on March 25th with the proceeds benefiting the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

During the hours of 2pm-8pm on that day, every beer on tap at Bar Volo will have been brewed by a female member of Toronto’s brewing industry. The Granite Brewpub, Amsterdam Brewery, Black Oak Brewery, Cheshire Valley, and Bar Volo’s House Ales have all generously donated their time, ingredients and pilot systems to collaborate on a special one-off beer to be served only at this event.

Furthermore the 9 females, representing 6 of Toronto's craft breweries, have all come together to collaborate on one special beer to be featured at the event. Truly a one of a kind event, and one of a kind beers, as nothing like this has ever been done in the Canadian beer scene before.

Other local breweries, as well as businesses, who do not have access to or own a pilot system, but still believe in this great cause have donated prizes to be raffled off. This is a ticketed event, and is $20 dollars at the door. All of the cost of the door, as well as the cost of the kegs and the raffle prizes is being donated to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. The event will be catered by Alli’s Fresh Baked.

The Beer For Boobs Name is being used in affiliation with, and under permission from, a non-profit group of the same name based out of San Diego, California. This is inaugural event of what will become a series of events known as “Beer for Boobs T.O.”
