Nestled in the heart of the North Shore of Vancouver, BC, there’s a brewery that’s built on a commitment to community, a love of the waterlife, and making really, really good beer (that’s got some deep local roots). 

Growing Bridge Brewing since 2012 has been a full-time, full-family affair that was—in hindsight—wonderfully interrupted by the slower pace of 2020 from COVID-19. The result? A new relationship with work for Owner/Director of Consumption Leigh Stratton, a new pace for her family, a reconnection with a longtime water-propelled passion, and new the one we’re launching today. 

Now available (as a small batch) for local craft beer enthusiasts, Leigh is committed to this collaboration making some positive local change; dedicating $2.00 from every 4-pack of the Survival Session IPA to go to Ocean Ambassadors - a local non-profit focused on marine environment education and cleaning up our oceans.  


While it may have taken a global halt to slow Leigh and her family down, the team at Bridge Brewing chases as much play as they do work - making them the perfect partners to pursue this knock-off collaboration with. Cracking a cold one in celebration of life, friends, time on the water and connecting in community is our kind of way to mark a shared passion for a life lived beyond land.


It’s our goal that alongside the funds raised through the sales of the beer, that every time you pop the top on a Survival Session IPA you find yourself reveling in the moment, slowing down, and finding a moment to make a memory - whether you’re out on the water or simply taking a moment to pause on land.

As much as we’d love to share this with everyone, Mustang Survival Session IPA was created by a local craft brewery and will be only be available at select private and BC Liquor locations in southwestern, British Columbia.
