New beer aims to raise money for singer’s Alzheimer’s treatment
John Mann was the face of Spirit of the West, the band behind this iconic Canadian party song.
John has been suffering from early-only Alzheimer’s for the past few years and requires ongoing treatment.
A brewery called Off The Rail has just released a new pilsner called Spirit Lifter that they hope will raise money for John as well as awareness of the issues surrounding the needs of Alzheimer’s patients.
At the moment, Off The Rail is only available in BC. The company is owned by Steve Forsyth, the brother of a Janet Forsyth, who once served as the manager for Spirit of the West.
