A Magnanimous November to Remember


On November 1st Fort George Brewery released their latest seasonal, Magnanimous IPA. This winter collaboration blends piney Simcoe and Chinook hops with hand-harvested Grand Fir trimmings from Earth & Sky Farm, all packed into a 16-oz can. Typically November 1st also marked the start of “No Shave November” at the pub, culminating with the “Bearded Mug” awarded to the most magnificent beard of the bunch. But this year Fort George has decided to do something different – something even more magnanimous.

Join Fort George in presenting the first annual Magnanimous Mug – an award bestowed upon one noble craft beer aficionado who is dedicated to making the North Coast a better place. To do this, Fort George needs your help. Who is the most magnanimous person you know? What about them exemplifies these attributes? What’s their favorite Fort George beer? Is there a story, article, or award that conveys this magnanimous spirit? Let Fort George know by filling out the Magnanimous Mug nomination form online at www.fortgeorgebrewery.com/magnanimousmug, or by picking up a nomination form at the pub.


The winner of the Magnanimous Mug will be entitled to all of the Fort George Mug Club benefits for 2016. Nominations are being accepted until November 15th. A select group of finalists will be contacted to determine eligibility. The awards ceremony takes place Sunday, November 29th at 6pm, upstairs at Fort George before Sunday night music. Magnanimous IPA is a limited winter seasonal. Be magnanimous always. Drink Magnanimous IPA while you can.
