A Magnanimous November to Remember

FullSizeRender-48

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.
