Royal City Brewing Co. Launch Party

On Saturday May 25th stop by the Royal City Brewing Co. from 3pm-7pm and visit our Guelph Humane Society booth! Royal City will be launching an ale where $0.50 from every can purchased will be donated back to the Guelph Humane Society. You’ll have to come out to see what type they have in store for you, but trust us, you’re going to love it! Hint: It’s the return of an oldie but such a goodie!

From the organizers page:

“For 125 years, the Guelph Humane Society has been dedicated to protecting the many animals with whom we share our community. Each year over 3,000 vulnerable animals come through their doors in need of care and compassion.

This May, we’re collaborating with the staff at Guelph Humane Society in support of their work and to assist in their funding for building their new home where they can truly unleash hope for these animals.

5% | 15 IBU

Share with friends & animal-advocates

.50 cents from every can will be donated directly to Guelph Humane Society”
