Whistler certainly has a lot of hills just made for excellent Longboarding. And you thought Whistler was just for skiing and snowboarding. The World Longboard Festival was held in Whistler on July 4th-7th.

Did You Know That Drinking Beer is Healthy for You?

Most people think that beer is fattening and not healthy for you. Well the research shows that when you drink beer in moderation, it has healthy benefits for you. Beer is fat free, cholesterol free, and low in carbohydrates. Most 341-ml bottles of beer with 5 % alcohol have only 5 - 12 g of carbohydrates. There are between 95 – 150 calories in a 12 oz. beer depending on the type of beer. Depending whether it is a light beer or a darker beer and the amount of alcohol in it, determines the amount of carbohydrates and calories.  In comparison 12 ounces of skim milk has about 125 and orange juice has about 150 calories. Now that doesn’t mean that you should drink beer instead of milk and orange juice, just drink it in moderation, as part of an otherwise healthy diet. Choose a beer over a soda, sugary juice, or cocktail.

I love to drink a cold beer on a hot summer day. It quenches your thirst and cools you off. But did you know that there are a lot of other uses for beer other than quenching your thirst? I know you are probably saying, “Why would I use it for anything but quenching my thirst?”  Well you can still cool off with a cold beer, but now you can use it for all of these other things while you are enjoying a Big Surf Laid Back Lager or Honey Brown beer.

  Big Surf Beer is celebrating the Canadian Surf Culture in an epic way. We’re proud to be the main sponsor of The Canadian Surfer Movie, a film that highlights surfing in Tofino, Sombrio Beach, and Jordan River on the west coast of BC to the coast of Nova Scotia. Did you know that there is surfing right here in the Okanagan Valley? This film has a section filmed at Antler’s Beach just south of Peachland. The film crew shivered through the filming at Antler’s Beach during 2 winters to get the footage they wanted for The Canadian Surfer Movie.
