Main Street Brewing will make Christmas wishes come true for kids across Metro Vancouver and give the community a chance to win an array of prizes from local small businesses when it hosts its inaugural Miracle on Main Street charitable drive this December 1 to 12.
During these 12 days of giving, brewery-goers who drop off an unwrapped toy or gift card with a minimum value of $10 at Main Street (261 East 7th Ave.) will receive a complimentary flight of its ‘core four’ beers — Naked Fox IPA, Main Street Pilsner, Fruit Bomb Sour and Kingpin Pale Ale — as well as entry into a series of ‘odd-day’ draws with prizing from Main Street-area merchants taking place December 3 to 25.
Draw winners will receive a six-pack of Main Street beer and a $50 gift card to Main Street-area merchants, and every entrant over the age of 19 will also be entered into the grand prize of one flat of Main Street beer a month for a year to be drawn on Christmas Day.
“We wanted to give a little something back to the community while supporting local small businesses at a time they need it the most,” says Main Street Brewing Co-Owner Cameron Forsyth. “We’re a one-for-all, all-for-one crew in this neighbourhood and we’re all looking forward to making spirits bright for as many people as possible this holiday season.”
All items collected at the brewery will be delivered in time for Christmas to the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau, which has been putting smiles on children’s faces throughout the community since 1930. A wish list of preferred toys and donations for a range of ages can be found here: lmcb.ca/donate-toys-gifts. Main Street is also inviting people to drop off canned goods and non-perishable food items at the brewery to be donated to The Greater Vancouver Food Bank.
