Red Racer Continues to Celebrate Canadian Craft Beer With Second Annual Across the Nation Collaboration

The 2018 Red Racer Across the Nation mixed pack features 12 collaboration brews from craft breweries across the country

Red Racer Across the Nation Collaboration

Red Racer brings back the popular Across the Nation collaboration and shares 12 new brews from 12 popular Canadian breweries.

The Red Racer Across the Nation Collaboration began as a celebration of Canada 150 through Canadian craft beer and has since grown to encompass much more. This year's mixed pack features new Canadian breweries as well as a number of more innovative styles to excite craft beer drinkers from across the country. This mixed pack is Red Racer's way of sharing the amazing styles of craft beer found in every corner of our nation.

"Across the Nation embodies the Canadian craft beer industry's collaborative spirit," says Gary Lohin, Brewmaster at Central City Brewers + Distillers and Red Racer. "We never saw the Across the Nation project as a one-off. It was always intended to be an ongoing and evolving way for us to work creatively with our friends and colleagues from across the country while sharing craft beer across Canada."

The Red Racer Across the Nation Collaboration offers 12 unique beers that are each inspired by the province and brewery that they come from.

This year's Across the Nation Collaboration features 12 unique cans of craft beer that also serve to tell the story behind each of the delicious beers available inside.
