Something we’re fanatics about is giving back to our community. After all, we’re raising our kids and dogs here. We want it to still be good when our grandkids and future pets are roaming the place. For us, that means a community that’s interesting. Inspiring. A place to thrive. So we regularly support over 200 nonprofit organizations each year with in-kind and monetary donations, and/or volunteers.
Our most unique effort so far is our Community Ales program. Each year we brew a different beer for each of four local nonprofits, and donate 100% of the profits–yep, 100%–from the beers to those causes. We believe each of these nonprofits contributes to our one-of-a-kind quality of life around here. Read more about them here.
Since 2006, our Community Ales program has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for these local nonprofits. But here’s the best part: When you choose to enjoy a Community Ale, you’re choosing to give back, too. Community support was never so tasty.
