TORONTO, ON – Labatt Breweries of Canada has announced that it will be joining with other AB InBev owned breweries around the world to raise funds for war relief efforts in Ukraine via a special beer release.
Chernigivske (4.8% abv) is described as follows:
Chernigivske is Ukraine’s most-loved beer and part of AB InBev’s global portfolio of brands. The beer is named after the city Chernihiv and has been brewed in Ukraine since 1988. Since its inception, Chernigivske has celebrated Ukraine’s history, culture, and people. Taking inspiration from the original recipe, our Chernigivske-inspired beer is a crisp medium bodied European-style pale golden lager with subtle fruity notes and a moderately bitter finish.
The North American edition of Chernigivske is being brewed at the Anheuser-Busch facility in Newark, New Jersey, and will be available at beer retailers and licensees across Canada in several weeks.
Gross profits from its sales will be donated to CARE’s Ukraine Crisis Fund, as part of a minimum $5 million donation that AB InBev will making to various humanitarian aid organizations in the region.
