We're excited to announce the 3rd year of Good Work beer - our fundraising collaboration with Container Brewing and IMBA (International Mountain Bike Association) Canada that gives out grants across the country. We're investing in local clubs that want to do good work in their communities by tackling big issues (like Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion), help increase adaptive ridership, mentor new generations of riders, promote sustainable trails, and build partnerships with others wanting to do these things too!
We hope these grants create lasting legacies as well as inspiring others to work on creating mountain bike communities that are diverse, resilient, and thriving.
About the grant program:
IMBA is giving out grants to clubs looking to make an impact in their community. Bring your big ideas and lofty goals to change the mountain bike world through good work and they'll help you get started!
If you’re a club looking to apply for the grant, here's where to do it:
The application shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes to fill out. We’re looking to fund projects that are visionary, unique and create lasting impacts. Applications will be accepted until August 31st.

About the beer:
The Good Work Kveik Lager is a modern lager brewed with Kveik yeast. Loral and Saaz hops bring notes of honey, herbs and citrus, finishing slightly tart with a clean, mild bitterness. A good beer for good people doing good work.
Once again, we had the amazing Ariel Wickham design the label artwork for us - an ode to the new ways people are using bikes to get out into nature, from bikepacking to gravel grinding, and beyond.
Where can I get this delicious beer?!
If you’re in the Vancouver area, stop by the brewery to pick up a four-pack or order online to get it shipped to you within the Greater Vancouver area. You can also find their beer in local restaurants and liquor stores across BC. New for this year, the Good Work beer can be found in select liquor stores in Alberta so keep an eye out! If your favourite liquor store (BC or AB) doesn't have the beer in stock, have them contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get it brought in for you!
