KINGSTON, ON – Spearhead Brewing has announced the release of a new beer in partnership with Dollar Bill’s Apex Group to raise funds for University Hospitals Kingston Foundation (UHKF).
Dollar Bill’s Apex Group takes its name from Dollar Bill’s, a bar and music venue that operated in Kingston’s Prince George Hotel in the 1970s and 1980s, and was best known for hosting blues artists including John Lee Hooker, Buddy Guy, Junior Walker, and many others.
The Group formed in 2014 to honour the legacy of Dollar Bill’s and raise funds for UHKF. They’re getting set to present their third benefit concert this spring, and have partnered with Spearhead to brew an accompanying beer.
Dollar Bill’s Private Stock Premium Ale (4.9% abv) features “a smooth body with an earthy and floral aroma with slight biscuit & bread notes offering a hint of sweetness at the end.”
Dollar Bill’s Private Stock is available now at the Spearhead taproom, retail store and online shop, with partial proceeds going to UHKF.
It will also be pouring at the “Live From Dollar Bill’s” charity concert taking place on Saturday May 13th at Tir Nan Og, the Irish pub in the space where Dollar Bill’s used to be located, with performances by Morgan Davis and Paul Reddick. Tickets are available now for $59 via the Spearhead website and brewery retail store.
