Hopping Mad Cider Releases PRIDE Can

This is Hopping Mad Cider’s second year as official cider of the Vancouver Pride Festival. To commemorate pride season a custom rainbow can has been released and arriving in BC liquor stores. The limited edition can celebrates the 39th annual season of Vancouver’s Pride Festival and the LGBTQ2+ community.

After the 2016 partnership was a great success between Hopping Mad and Vancouver Pride; a custom can concept was developed. Hopping Mad Cider’s Marketing Manager, Dustan Sept comments, “We were amazed by the engagement during 2016 events and wanted to build our support of this festival and the LGBTQ2+ community. The custom, rainbow can is a way that everyone at Central City Brewing are able to show Pride in our product and pride in our partnership with the 2017 Vancouver Pride Festival.”


It’s HOT off the production line and we think it’s the best dressed can of the year. There is no better way to get into the spirit of summer then to share a can with friends on your deck or balcony. Look for the attractive Pride can at participating liquor stores or during official pride season events.

Available locations include: Select BC Liquor Stores, Denman Liquor Store – West End Liquor Store – Marquis Wine Cellar and more. Look for on-Premise Pride Promotions while you are out and about at Pawn Shop, Beach Bay Cafe, The Fountainhead, Timber or ask your server.


Hopping Mad is a dry-hopped cider, blending aroma from Yakima hops with the sweetness and tartness of Cascadia apples. It is a cold fermented, full-flavoured cider, with hop aromatics, a sweet balance, and a crisp, tart finish. Hopping Mad is the Official Cider of Vancouver Pride.
