While not every nominee will be featured on a can of About Time, our online About Time portal will serve as a hub for amplifying as many voices as possible
A New Identity for Full Time IPA
At Beau’s, our purpose is to elevate the human spirit.
In a rebranding effort for our Full Time IPA, we are changing its name and identity to About Time IPA. The can artwork will feature the name and portrait of a local champion of social justice who has overcome adversity and is now working to make the world a better place.
This person could be you!
Fans of the great taste of our IPA can rest assured: About Time IPA will have the same recipe and hop-tastic awesomeness as our Full Time IPA.
Nominations Open Now
Beau’s is now accepting nominations of individuals to be featured on the inaugural Edition #1 of About Time IPA. Nomination criteria are listed below. The nominees will be reviewed by a special committee assembled for this purpose, and a feature will be chosen. Nominations will re-open at that time for Edition #2. The first cans of About Time IPA will roll out early next year.

While there are many worthy social justice programs and projects, we are looking to feature the individuals who had the vision to create them, or who they have helped
Nominees can be entrepreneurs or creators who are underrepresented in their field
We are particularly encouraging nominations of individuals who are:
- Black and/or Indigenous and/or people of colour

Nominations will be evaluated based on:
- The value they are creating in the community through action or leadership
- Innovation, creative-problem solving, overcoming challenge, and / or leadership
- How greatly a boost from being featured on can of About Time will help them
- The timeliness of the social justice issue being addressed
