Suck It Cancer

Pale Ale

Now a Backcountry tradition, this annual special release features a can designed in collaboration with the estate of Chili Thom, a local artist who succumbed to cancer in 2016. Since November 2019, proceeds from the ‘Suck It Cancer’ Pale Ale campaign have raised over $37,000 for the BC Cancer Foundation, funding important cancer research in our province.

4PK $17.50
ABV : 5.5% IBU : 30

We will be donating:⁠⠀⁠

  • $50 per keg⁠
  • $1 per 4-pack⁠
  • $0.50 per sleeve sold in our tasting room⁠
  • & Sales of label stickers & limited-edition Chili Thom art prints!⁠

The effort to support breakthrough research would not be possible without the support of generous sponsors and partners Summit Labels, Hops Connect, Vessel Packaging Co, Rahr Malting, and BSG Canada – and, of course, you!!⁠

The Chili Thom artwork featured on this year’s label is titled ‘Full Wave Spectrum’. Backcountry will also be selling prints of Thom’s art, as well as stickers of the can label graphic at the Squamish tasting room to help raise additional funds for cancer research.
