Chinatown's Showboat, Covered Bridge Brewing to release Showboat Paddle SMaSh
You can work up a powerful thirst while paddling, but that’s not the reason one dragon boat team is crafting specialized suds.
Chinatown’s Showboat, a Centretown dragon boat team, has partnered with Stittsville’s Covered Bridge Brewing Company to create a specialty beer to benefit the Ottawa Dragon Boat Association and local organizations.
The craft beer – Showboat Paddle SMaSH – will launch on May 14 at Covered Bridge Brewing’s 119 Iber Rd. facility.
Chinatown’s Showboats have been competing in Ottawa’s Dragon Boat Festival for more than a decade, and each year take on one or more fundraising challenges. Since 2003, the team has raised over $110,000 for the foundation.
