Local brewery creates purple beer to help raise funds and awareness

Cross Creek Brewing and Woodstock Rotaract are hosting a special event to promote World Polio Day on Tuesday, Oct. 24. 

The event, which takes place from 8 to 10 p.m., will feature a special brew from the brewery’s brewmaster. 

Cross Creek has created a purple glitter beer in honour of the day. 

Purple is World Polio Day’s colour. The pub will also donate 50 cents for every beer sold to the cause. The night will also feature live music from John Bulman and Devon Cullins and special purple-themed finger foods and desserts. Entry is by donation. 

Background on World Polio Day

Every year, Rotary members around the world mobilize for World Polio Day. They raise awareness of polio and gather support for our global effort to make sure that every child is protected from it.
