Two businesses located in British Columbia, “Camp Beer Co. Brewery” and “Mainland Whisky” have collaborated to create a unique craft drink called Beer Whisky. The joint collaboration by brewer David Henry and distiller Steve Watts has resulted in a special very limited release that is currently available for pre-orders. 20% of pre-orders will go directly to the Canada-Ukraine Foundation to help provide humanitarian aid to those affected by the war. You can place your order online at www.mainlandwhisky.com or call 604-372-4424.

Purchase your bottle today for pickup in May 2025; yes, this smooth, complex spirit must lay at rest for at least 3 years. Camp’s famous Malt Liquor Beer made from corn, wheat, barley, and hops has been distilled in Mainland’s special still and casked in a re-charred 59-gallon wine barrel. Mainland Whisky is located at 3425 – 189 Street in Surrey BC; and Camp Beer Co. Brewery is located at 19664 – 64 Ave. in Langley where you can enjoy a variety of craft beers.

Mainland Whisky felt compelled to do something to help the citizens of Ukraine since Mainland shareholder Victor Dawydiak has a number of family members currently in Ukraine that are dealing with the frightening challenges of war. Those who would like to donate directly to the Canada-Ukraine Foundation can do so by going to www.cufoundation.ca/
