Providing Support for Saskatchewan Grasslands One Beer at a Time

From Brewer’s Journal Canada


Support for one of Saskatchewan’s most endangered ecosystems, the Prairie grasslands, is growing thanks to a new beer from Nokomis Craft Ales.

The new white IPA known as the “Hoppy Anniversary” is prepared with components that are present in the environment and raises money to safeguard the grasslands.

The beer is sold at retailers across Saskatchewan, with fifty cents from each can going to the Nature Conservancy of Canada. It also serves as a celebration of Nokomis Craft Ales’ ninth anniversary.

“As a brewery deeply rooted in the heart of Saskatchewan, we know the value of grasslands and the importance of coming together to protect them,” Jeff Allport, the owner of Nokomis Craft Ales, said. “Our colla’beer’ation with NCC isn’t just about crafting great beer; it’s a celebration of nature and community. With every can we raise, we’re giving a toast to the Prairies, to the wildlife that call them home and to those who steward these landscapes.”

The Prairie Grasslands Action Plan, just unveiled by the NCC, aims to protect and restore more than 500,000 hectares by 2030, an area six times the size of Calgary.

Campaigns like this benefit conservation in two ways, according to Cameron Wood, the NCC’s regional director for Saskatchewan. Raising awareness helps raise money as well.

“Grasslands are one of the most endangered ecosystems on the planet,” Wood said. “The grasslands that we have right in our own backyards are habitats that are more at risk than places like the Amazon rainforest.

“Having a can of beer on somebody’s long weekend adventures be able to help tell that story… and connect with a whole new audience that might not be aware of how important this habitat is. It’s really exciting.”
