SQUAMISH, BRITISH COLUMBIA and CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - April 15, 2015) - Howe Sound Brewing of Squamish, BC and Village Brewery of Calgary, AB are wagering their very own brewers over the upcoming playoff series between the Vancouver Canucks and Calgary Flames.

The Canucks and Flames have not met in a playoff series since 2004, and both felt that a special wager was needed to commemorate this long-awaited moment.

"If the Flames lose, which is likely, the fine folks at Village will be sending their brewer and loyal Canuck fan Jeremy McLaughlin out to our brewery to brew for a week, along with a few of their fine beers for our victory celebrations. He may not return," said Dave Fenn, co-owner of Howe Sound.

"Like Village, the Flames are a newly built team that cares about winning for the city," says Jim Button, partner of Village Brewery. "And when they do, Howe Sound will be shipping their brewer Franco Corno express delivery to Calgary. He'll be in a Flames shirt brewing and helping around the community; and of course bearing gifts from BC."

Both craft breweries guarantee, or at least hope, that no brewers are physically harmed during the course of this friendly wager.
