PUP Launch "Scorpion Hill" Beer for Charity
Proceeds from pale ale sales will go to Sistering Toronto
Published Feb 12, 2020PUP entered the world of brewing with a collaborative beer following the release of 2016's The Dream Is Over, and the band have now readied another batch of suds themed after last year's Morbid Stuff.
The beloved Toronto outfit have teamed up with Town Brewery of Whitby, ON, to create a kveik pale ale dubbed "Scorpion Hill," which takes its name from the fifth track on the aforementioned Juno-nominated LP.
The beer is set to be released on February 21 online and in Town Brewery's taproom, ahead of being available at PUP's February 22 show at the Oshawa Music Hall with Luna Li and Casper Skulls.
A percentage of sales proceeds will be donated to Sistering Toronto, a multi-service agency for at-risk, socially isolated women and trans people in the city who are homeless or precariously housed.
"When an awesome spot like Town Brewery asks if you want to be involved in a beer-related charity initiative, the answer is obvious," drummer Zack Mykula said in a statement. "Especially when it benefits such an amazing group as Sistering. Working on behalf of women in need in the Toronto area, be they homeless, marginalized or socially isolated, their cause of compassion is very close to our hearts."
PUP recently released a fan-shot video for Morbid Stuff's title track, while six-stringer Steve Sladkowski was recently named the 2020 keeper of the Maple Leaf Forever guitar.
The band also recently hit the studio to write and record new demos.
