BAM! August was the month to celebrate all things summer, to soak in the sunshine, and “The Pineapple Smash” was the perfect patio burger!
Adam Nachbaur of Snake Lake Brewing Co. was the mastermind behind this backyard burger which included a grilled chicken breast, pineapple, pineapple teriyaki sauce, smoked gouda, jalapeño, tomato, pickle, lettuce, Kettle Crunch jalapeño chips, and pineapple jalapeño aioli on a brioche bun!
$2 from every burger sold and thanks to the amazing support of our friends at Snake Lake Brewing – $1 from every Snake Lake pint sold in August is going directly towards Adam’s charity of choice, the MS Society of Canada – Central Alberta Chapter.
Adam’s Mom suffers from MS, he also lost a Grandfather to the disease, so its been a part of his life for as long as he can remember. He was keen to help support anyone dealing with MS and their family members who are also navigating the disease.
Canada has one of the highest rates of multiple sclerosis in the world. On average, 11 Canadians are diagnosed every day. MS is a chronic autoimmune disease of the central nervous system (brain, spinal cord). It’s an episodic disease which means the severity and duration of the illness and disability varies, with unpredictable effects.
Your support of our beloved Burger of the Month Program means $1698, plus another $150 from our friends at Snake Lake Brewing Company, for a grand total of $1848 was donated to the Central Alberta MS Chapter to help with the work they do providing information, support and advocacy to people affected by MS, and funding research to find the cause and cure for the disease.
Thanks to the amazing support we see from our guests for our Burger of the Month program month after month, we have had the opportunity to give back over $65,000 to local charities over the past 43 months! THANK-YOU!
