Reuben's Brews - A New Way to Support the Community
April 29, 2013 - 9:06 AM- by Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog -
Like most of our local breweries, Reuben's Brews makes a conscious effort to support charitable causes. "In particular, schools and children’s charities," says Adam Robbings, cofounder and Head Brewer at Reuben's Brews.
Local craft breweries are constantly barraged with requests for charitable contributions. Most people in the craft brewing industry want to help; a desire to be part of the community is one of the motivations for opening a craft brewery. (Craft brewing isn't a get-rich-quick scheme, afterall.) Still, the number of requests can be overwhelming. Reuben's Brews has come up with a way to share the love.
“We are excited to launch a program that enables us to give back to the community that supports us,” said Robbings. “This program gives us a great fun way to help raise money for local charities and non-profits and we can’t wait to get started!”
Thank you Thursdays will allow Reuben's Brews to support a different charity each week. Details of the program are still coming together, and we'll have more details in the near future, but for now understand that each Thursday Reuben's Brews will donate $1.00 for each pint sold in its taproom. Potentially, each Thursday could be designated to benefit a different organization or cause.
“We are excited to have weekly events raising money for local community organizations, and . If you are a local registered non-profit or charity interested in an event – please don’t hesitate to drop us an email!”
Interested charities should email Adam Robbings. Expect a formal announcement from the brewery soon.
