An Ottawa brewery is taking up its own “Buck-a-Beer” challenge, this one specifically designed to benefit charity.

Dominion City Brewing is jumping on the fallout of Ontario Premier Doug Ford’s announcement Tuesday, asking the province’s breweries to drop their beer prices to $1 a bottle. The request from Ford, which comes with no financial incentives, is being widely panned by Ontario brewers who argue that selling beer for at 2008 prices of $1 a bottle can’t be done profitably in 2018.

Local brewer Dominion City Brewing Company unveiled its own ‘ buck - a - beer ’ plan on Wednesday, pledging that it will donate proceeds from a limited edition beer to refugees looking to make a home in Ottawa . The Ottawa brewer ’s plan follows Ontario Premier Doug Ford’s announcement on Tuesday

“As an independently-owned brewery, we can tell you unequivocally that it is impossible to sell a beer for a dollar without compromising quality,” said McJannett.

“So, we’ve decided to respond to Ontario’s buck-a-beer challenge in our own way, by inviting our customers to help refugees build a new life in Ottawa. As our contribution, we’re donating $1 for every can of our forthcoming Dominion City Buck-A-Beer Blonde Ale to support refugee integration efforts in Ottawa.”

McJannett said he plans to sell the beer for $3.50 per standard sized can (355 ml), which is smaller than the 473 ml tall cans that are increasingly appearing in retail channels.

The beer will be available at the brewery on Aug. 30.

The move comes as settlement agencies in Ottawa are asking for support from the community in order to help as many as 150 refugees that are trying to settle in the nation’s capital.

While McJannett’s initiative is particularly timely, it’s not unique. Other brewers, including Whitewater Brewing Co. and the Big Rig Brewery, regularly run charitable fundraising promotions.

Even the big brewers are actively involved in charitable giving. The Molson Foundation, which is operated by Molson Coors Brewing Co., annually distributes millions of dollars to charitable causes.
