Brewery raises money for bereaved family

Rossland Beer Company has been raising money for Tim Van Den Nieuwenhof's family after he suddenly passed away.

Over the past week Rossland Beer Company has been collecting portions of growler sales to donate to Tim Van Den Nieuwenhof’s family donation fund after he suddenly past away at the end of August.

“That fund is an awesome pool of money from the community to help with travel expenses with his family coming over from Australia for the funeral, and for the wake, and the celebrations of life, and then any other costs,” said Margot Phillips from Rossland Beer.

Van Den Nieuwenhof was a friend of the brewery, and Phillips extended condolences from everyone there to his family.

“He was such a good guy; I’m still pretty much in shock. We all loved him, and it was so sudden,” she said. “Our heart goes out to all the Van Den Nieuwenhofs who just recently lost another family member.”
