Inner City Brewing partners with Black Lives Matter Society YYC

Our friends at Inner City Brewing partnered with the Black Lives Matter Society YYC to create four new labels to celebrate Black History Month. These labels featured art by four incredible local Black artists. You'll be able to see their art on limited-edition cans of their best-selling Bridgelandia beer.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of these cans will be donated to the Black Lives Matter Society YYC. These brews are available for purchase at their taproom in The BLOX or online!
