BC Beer Wars: Local breweries enter the boxing ring for at-risk youth
BC Beer Wars is an annual collaborative fundraiser between Vancouver and Victoria’s Craft Beer and Boxing communities. Participants from over a dozen local craft breweries take part in an intensive three month training regime to prepare themselves for a sold out boxing card at participating venues. Funds raised from Beer Wars benefit local gyms – Eastside Boxing Club located in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside and Victoria Boxing Club located in Victoria. Both community based non-profits aim to better their communities through boxing Community boxing programs for at risk youth and women that have been exposed to violence.
VBT in collaboration with our Brewery Partner Storm Brewing, has sponsored one of our Brewery Tour Guides to compete. Dave is pumped and training started today!
Several teasers will lead up to the main event including open sparring sessions. The main event is coming up at the end of April. Date tbc.
Good luck to everyone competing and props to Eastside Boxing Club and Victoria Boxing Club for organizing this amazing fundraiser for the community.
