FIVE ANTLERS beer
We’re raising our beer to cheers caribou conservation in the NWT with our Five Antlers Ale. In these cans you’ll find a copper-coloured ale that is light bodied with notes of caramel and has a mild hop presence with a crisp finish for easy drinking.
Partial proceeds from this beer will go to protecting caribou in the NWT
The 5 Caribou Types in the NWT
(Threatened): Barren-ground caribou are highly social and travel in large groups. Nine herds of caribou each migrate to their own traditional calving grounds on the tundra every spring.
(Threatened): Boreal caribou are the “grey ghosts” of the boreal forest – secretive and rarely seen. They spread out in the woods to give birth alone.
Dolphin and Union Caribou
(Special Concern): Dolphin and Union caribou must cross the sea ice twice a year, migrating to Victoria Island for the summer and the mainland for the winter.
Northern Mountain Caribou
(Special Concern): Northern Mountain caribou move with the seasons up and down the Mackenzie Mountain slopes. They rest on alpine ice patches to escape the heat and bugs.
(Threatened): Peary caribou are small, pale caribou that live in the harsh treeless environment of the Arctic Islands. They graze on green plants and, unlike other caribou, rarely eat lichens.
