Russell Brewing and Mr.Bentley The Dog Make Wishes Come True

We teamed up with Mr.Bentley the Dog, the moonwalking, helicopter co-piloting, cucumber eating internet sensation. We created a refreshingly crisp Cucumber Sour with partial proceeds from each can and keg sold going to Children’s Wish BC. Today we had the great pleasure of dropping off a cheque for $5078.18 to the wonderful staff at Children’s Wish. Thank you to our entire Russell Brewing Team, Alycia, Brad, Mr. Bentley and the Children’s Wish team for helping make dreams come true.

About Children’s Wish

Since we granted the first wish-come-true in 1984, we have created joyful experiences for more than 25,000 children coping with a life-threatening illness. As the country’s largest and only all-Canadian wish-granting charity, we create joyful experiences that profoundly impact the lives of more than 1,000 children every year.

Surrey Eagles + Russell Brewing

Russell Brewing is excited to announce our partnership with the Surrey Eagles Hockey Organization. We are thrilled to be the official beer sponsor for the 2019-2020 season.

We will be pouring our craft lager and our pale ale at all home games. 100% percent of all sales go back into the Surrey Eagles organization.



About the Surrey Eagles

Over the past 26 years, the Eagles have won four league championships, two Doyle Cup Championships, and the most coveted prize in Jr. A hockey, the National Junior A Championship. The BCHL is the highest level of hockey a young man can play, while still maintaining eligibility for post secondary scholarships. As well as developing National Hockey League stars such as Brett Hull, Paul Kariya, and former Surrey Eagle Scott Gomez, the BCHL has produced countless players who have received full ride scholarships to Universities and colleges across the United States and Canada. Gomez, Brandon Tanev, Devon Toews and Danton Heinen are just some of the prospects the club has helped to promote.

Playing an up-tempo game featuring fast skating, hard hitting and precise passing, the Eagles have emerged as one of the premier junior hockey programs in North America.

The moon walking, helicopter co-piloting, cucumber eating internet sensation Mr. Bentley the Dog wants to help children in need. He partnered with Russell Brewing to create this refreshingly crisp Cucumber Sour. $2 from every 4 pack sold will be donated to Mr. Bentley’s favourite charity…CHILDREN’S WISH BC

Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada is the largest and only all-Canadian wish granting charity dedicated to granting wishes to Canadian children between the ages of 3 and 17 who are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. For more than 30 years, Children’s Wish has worked tirelessly to grant heartfelt wishes to more than 25,000 children and their families – that’s three wishes each and every day, all year long!

Children’s Wish has chapter offices and professional staff in every province, and each wish family is assigned a dedicated Wish Coordinator who is able to personally and carefully structure each heartfelt wish experience to meet the particular needs of the child and their family. Travel wishes include all siblings 21 years and under living in the same household, and families travel worry-free thanks to exclusive Blue Cross insurance.

Our newly expanded reach, which includes children diagnosed with a serious neurological or genetic condition, means continued strong wish referral support through our medical community. Wish referrals continue to increase year over year, and we are proud to maintain our ‘no waiting list’ policy, thanks to our generous donors.

Now more than ever, we are encouraging Canadians to donate and support Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada. Help us grant the next single-most heartfelt wish.

Sky Helicopters has generously donated a flight for 2 with Bentley the Dog. The giveaway runs from August 13th until September 15th. You can visit to enter. #flywithbentley

Pacific FC X Russell Brewing 1024 331 Jimmy Darbyshire

Pacific FC X Russell Brewing

We are very excited to be one of the five craft breweries selected to be part of the Pacific FC’s inaugural season. We are looking forward to an unbelievable season and can’t wait for you all to enjoy our craft brews!!

The Canadian Premier League

The time has arrived for Canadian soccer supporters, players, coaches and everyone in the game who’ve long dreamt for a league to call our own. Our long journey has led us to this point, and we’re ready to seize the moment.

Canadian grit sets us apart and embodies soccer fans across the country. Working as one for a league to call our own; a league where supporters, players, coaches, clubs are all united by passion for Canada and passion for the game. Coming together to create an authentic league from the ground up, truly for Canadians, by Canadians.

We are also the most diverse country on earth, and that makes us unique. Our story is about the people. We’re a group of First Nations, immigrants, languages and cultures. We are driven by our desire to be the very best. Diversity is our strength. We are a Cultural Mosaic.

For far too long, many talented kids have dreamt of playing professional soccer in vain. With nowhere to go, their dreams have been dashed as the road to pro was a dead-end path. In some ways we have out-sourced our path to the professional game to other nations. Not anymore.

Enter the Canadian Premier League, a league for Canadians, by Canadians. Players and supporters from coast to coast will finally have a competition to truly call their own. Our clubs will embody the spirit of the community and country. Players will have a league to develop and showcase their skills in front of loyal and passionate supporters that sing and chant their name. They will also bond and forge relationships with fellow Canadians who share similar experiences.

History will be written, and rivalries will be born. Colours will be flown, and respect will be earned. This will be the main stage for our very best to compete for the right to represent the Maple Leaf. All while elevating the standard of play across all levels of the game and building the player pool for our national teams.

The Canadian Premier League will be the light that guides us to our ultimate goal. Our future is bright.
