Let’s be truthful: this week’s political events have made me want to drink. A lot. It’s not just me feeling this way–I’ve been making cocktails and pouring beers for many a discouraged face at work too. While I’m no expert on giving political or diplomatic advice, one of my personal mantras is to always put my money where my mouth is. Turns out, my mouth is often near a beer. And thus I sought out some charitable, warm and fuzzy-feeling locations to help direct your money where your mouth is as well. Here are just a few breweries and events that do double duty in this trying time: providing you with a tasty beverage and helping your money go to a good cause.
More Seattle: Tuesday Februay 15th is Peddler Brewing‘s charity night from 4-10, where $1 from every pint will go to Unbound, a sponsorship nonprofit that benefits impoverished youth and elderly people around the world. 1514 NW Leary Way Seattle, WA 98107
Female brewers in Colorado have collaborated to create a five versions of a brew called Makin’ Noise: A Pussy Riot Beer. Sales from the beer benefit various charities like the ACLU and Conservation Colorado. The five breweries involved are Goldspot Brewing, Lady Justice Brewing, 3 Freaks Brewing, Black Sky Brewery and Brewability Lab.
Please note that I myself have no affiliation with any of these events or companies. I am merely a concerned and thirsty citizen.
