Beer Wars is an annual collaborative fundraiser between Vancouver’s Beer and Boxing communities. Participants from over a dozen local craft breweries take part in an intensive three month training regime to prepare themselves for a sold out boxing card at participating venues.
Funds raised from BeerWars benefits local boxing gym – Eastside Boxing Club located in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. This community based non-profit aims to better its community through boxing programs and community building.
Who can enter? Anyone who works at a brewery or in the beer industry (events, bloggers, distribution, suppliers, tours etc) can join. Everyone needs to be sponsored by a brewery.
In order to participate in Beer Wars, you must be sponsored by a brewery, and that brewery must donate 50L of product (cans preferred).
You must also raise a minimum $500 in donations in order to participate. Some breweries would like to cover the fundraiser goal of contenders in full. If this is the case, a $500 tax receipt will be provided to the brewery.
2020 registration fees are $150. This includes your Boxing BC membership fees. It does NOT include your medical fees. You are responsible for supplying your own equipment: wraps, gloves, and mouthguard. There are packages available at Mikado.
