We launched the CBC Beer Year at our 27th Anniversary in 2016.  The CBC Beer Year is a challenge to local craft beer enthusiasts to drink one of every CBC Beer Year qualifying brews* over the course of a year and to post a picture of it on Instagram using the hashtags #CBCBeerYear and #CBCBeerYear(yourIGhandle) (ex. #CBCBeerYear and #CBCBeerYearKeytarBear)

Complete the CBC Beer Year and you will earn:
1. Bragging rights!
2. A personalized CBC liter mug, for home or CBC use** and other CBC SWAG.
3. Entry into a drawing to brew a beer of your design with the CBC Brewstaff.***
4. Entry into a drawing to be featured in the next CBC mural.
Prize drawings will be held annually at CBC Anniversary Parties.

So, are you up for the challenge?

Below is the full list of qualifying CBC Beer Year Beers. This list will be updated regularly so be sure to check back. Each new beer that our brewer’s release will be added to the list.
