Why are we doing this?

In March, True Grist member Christina Burbadge passed away after a courageous battle with cancer. Christina embodied the spirit of the club with her principles of equality, discovery, and her love of all things beer.

For Canadian Homebrew Day, we are honouring our friend by raising money for Cancer research and sharing one of her award-winning recipes.


This beer won “Best of Show” at the Stack Brewing Northern Homebrew Competition in 2019. It is a highly drinkable session beer and the special ingredient of rye malt helps to add a dryness and fullness to the beer while contributing a subtle earthy character.
