Hey Ontario – the colder weather is here, and with it comes our Shinnicked Stout Clothing Drive, to help local communities from becoming shinnicked this winter! What is shinnicked? Shinnicked is that numbing, gasp-for breath feeling you get on a chilly winter's eve – a fine feeling when you can head home for a warming pint, but not something we want those in need to experience.
To help keep others from feeling shinnicked this winter, we've partnered up with four local charities (The Next, Anova, the Snowsuit Fund, and New Circles Community Services) to help collect lightly used winter clothing at 38 bars and restaurants across Ontario.
How can you help? Just head over to one of your favourite local spots for a fresh pint of Shinnicked Stout and drop off your winter clothing. It’s that easy.
