As a budding local business, we depend upon our immediate community to support us and hold us up. Our products are primarily sold and distributed within the Twin Cities metro, so YOU are literally what gives us life. Not only do you support a business, but you support people and their families who also live in our community. Those people continue this evolution and spend their money at other local businesses, supporting even more local residents and their families. And here is where we find where our dollars are stretched the furthest - within our community and with people who live, work, and have fun here.
In 2015, we donated more than $10,000 to local community organizations and non-profits. In 2016, we upped the ante and increased that number to almost $15,000. Our donations vary greatly, from simple silent auction or prize giveaway donations, to fundraiser beer samplings, and even going as far as organizing groups of volunteers within our community to take action. We helped plant over 150 trees with the Minnesota DNR in August, and are heading to Second Harvest Heartland in Maplewood for our second round of filling food boxes for those in need. On December 10th from 9-11 AM, we will be meeting to pack and load as many boxes as we can within our community, and we hope you can join us! We are still seeking 9 volunteers for this feel-good-give-back opportunity, and you can sign up here.
Pints for a Purpose
In an effort to reach beyond our immediate grasp of local consumers, we have created our 'Pints for a Purpose' program. This will allow you to not only spend your hard earned bills at a local establishment, but allow them go even further to support non-profit and community organizations who provide resources for the underserved in our area. When you make an effort to spread your dollar further, more individuals will see the benefit and outcome of spending within our local economy.
Pints for a Purpose was created to facilitate this process while you can enjoy a pint with family and friends. Once per month, we will host a not-for-profit organization here in our Taproom. During the course of the evening, $1 of every pint sold goes towards that organization for them to use how they please. The organization will also be here in the taproom to share their story.
Think you or someone you know is associated with an organization that could benefit from this program? Fill out this form and we will be in contact!
