An annual April fundraiser for 
Hospice of Windsor by
Jakes Windsor Brew,
& other craft breweries in
Windsor & Essex County

How it started

Brewer Jeffrey Craig of Jakes Windsor Brew & Walkerville Brewery had a passion for craft beer. When he was diagnosed with cancer in 2016 he did not let it stop him from doing what he loved. Using his science background and support from friends at Craft Heads Brewing Company and Walkerville Brewery, he collaborated on a beer featuring dandelions as a main ingredient to help in the fight against cancer.

Jakes Brew is honoured to be part of this annual fundraiser this year and thank-you  for your support.


The fine n dandy project has a little extra meaning for us  at Jakes Windsor Brew. Eric, who brews beer for Jakes Windsor Brew

 lost his wife, Victoria, December 27th 2021 to cancer. We are honored to be a part of this project in her memory.


Victoria had a passion for dogs and was a decorated trainer, receiving numerous awards with her 3 Australian shepherds. She had many hobbies, one of which included brewing. So to honour her, we've brewed up Jeff's original recipe and will be donating 100% of the proceeds to Hospice.


How can you help?

Stop by Jakes any day in April and pickup a mini growler (750ml) of Fine n Dandy beer for $6 or a 750ml bottle of delicious White Zinfandel wine for $10. All proceeds

will be donated to Hospice of Windsor this year.


Community Impact

Over the last 2 years we have raised close to $6000 at Jakes alone and are hoping to top that this year. The Fine n' Dandy project continues to be an annual traditional! To date, we have raised a grand total of $20,000 towards local cancer related charities . We thank all of our loyal customers and community for their continual support year after year!
