Drink for a good cause.
Labeling in Chili's Honour.

Cancer sucks. In 2016 local Squamish artist Chili Thom succumbed to cancer and in his honour we are proud to sponsor Backcountry Brewing’s smash hit “Suck it Cancer”.

Throwing back to last years fan favourite and gold medal winner at the BC Beer Awards — "Suck It Trebek” — Backcountry Brewing flipped the script on this beer, renamed it "Suck It Cancer", and collaborated on the can design with Chili Thom’s estate. Using his own art piece ‘Mounties in my Mind' as the label. 

“We realized, 'OK, well this would be very, very insensitive if we brought a beer back that was called Suck it Trebeck. We thought we’d flip the script and call it ‘Suck it Cancer’ and then fundraise for cancer.” - Ben Reeder, co-founder and marketing manager for Backcountry Brewing.

In Chili's honour we hope to raise over $5000 with this beer for the BC Cancer Foundation, a national leader in cancer research.
