An annual April fundraiser for
Hospice of Windsor by
Jakes Windsor Brew,
Craftheads Brewery &
Windmill Ridge Brewing
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 & at the new Windmill Ridge
Brewing Company lost his wife, Victoria, December 27th 2021. 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 cancer.
