On December 1, Whitetooth Brewery will be celebrating their third anniversary of opening their doors in Golden. To honour the occasion, they will be hosting a birthday party at the brewery on Saturday, November 30.
The third anniversary celebrations, are a great way to say thank you to a community that has embraced Whitetooth and shown them nothing but support.
It’s also a way to enter into a new phase for the brewery, who recently purchased a new canning line and are expanding their packaging.
“We’re getting to the point where we’re beyond start up stage, and now we’re in corporate adolescence,” said Kent Donaldson, co-owner of Whitetooth. “There’s been a lot of challenges, but the support from the community has been overwhelmingly positive, from tourists and people from all over the country, the States and Europe.”
At the celebration, Whitetooth will be unveiling two new collaboration beers.
The first is a collaboration with Backroads Brewing from Nelson, BC. Named “Friends on a Powder Day”, the beer is a Catharina sour with passionfruit that was aged in red wine barrels.
The second, named “Powder Hwy” is a dark saison with cranberries. Powder Hwy was a collaboration between four brewing companies, with Nelson Brewing, Mt. Begbie Brewing from Revelstoke and Whitetooth Brewing heading to Fernie to work together.
The partnership between these four breweries was meant to highlight the collaborative nature of the craft brewing industry and to celebrate the start of the winter season.
The breweries also designed a custom pair of Powder Hwy ski socks to honour the collaboration, with $5 from every purchase going towards Avalanche Canada to promote avalanche awareness and safety.
“The first one was a home and home, you brew at our place we brew at yours collaboration,” said Donaldson. “The other one, all four of the breweries went down to Fernie and used their facilities there.”
The party will be 70s themed, and will have a $5 cover charge.
“Bell bottoms I think are compulsory,” said Donaldson. “I think everyone is going to have a good time, and we’re just going to celebrate the fact that we’re three years old and looking forward to growing the company.”
DJ Wakcutt will be spinning 70s tunes, and the event will be catered by the Columbia River food truck. There will be a $100 gift certificate prize for the best 70s attire.
