Red Racer PILS Autism Promotion 2017 Central City Brewers and DistillersCentral City Brewers & Distillers began supporting Autism research in 2011. First through a donation of $5.00 from every bottle of Red Racer Imperial IPA, this promotion was later aligned with the Red Racer IPA and Red Racer Pilsner brands. In 2017, $2.00 from every six pack and $.25 from every 473ml can of Red Racer Pilsner went directly to the cause.

Partnered with Simon Fraser University and their Magnetoencephalography (MEG) research since 2012, Central City Brewers & Distillers committed to raise $500,000 towards Autism research. Following the 2017 Evening for Autism, the $500,000 commitment has now been fulfilled.

Central City Brewers & Distillers President and Founder Darryll Frost comments, “We have been committed to supporting Autism research since 2011 and that commitment remains strong. After fulfilling our promise to Simon Fraser University, we are charging forward with our Pilsner for Autism and other fundraising initiatives. We will continue to support research in this field building inclusivity
for those affected by Autism.”

In 2018 the Pilsner for Autism program will run nationally in Canada and in conjunction with other fundraising initiatives is expected to raise an estimated $150,000. Central City Brewers & Distillers is extremely proud of the work they have done in this field and is grateful for all of the sponsors and supporters of the program.
