DRINK BEER...SAVE A RIVER.
(BELOW IS A LIST OF LOCAL ESTABLISHMENTS SUPPORTING THE CAMPAIGN WITH PROMOTIONAL MATERIAL)
Now through July 15, for every 12-pack of Pale Ale and Sierra Nevada seasonal beer purchased in the U.S. Sierra Nevada will donate a portion of proceeds to river conservation-focused partners across the country, including Ohio River Foundation, a conservation non-profit based in Cincinnati, OH. Purchases can be made at grocery and beer retailers, and by drinking bottles at bars and restaurants who purchase 12-pack cases.
“Great water is essential to making great beer,” said Ken Grossman, Founder and President of Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. “We are committed to preserving natural waterways both in the Sierra Nevada that offer our inspiration, and across the nation. We measure the success of our business not only on the quality of our beer, but also our contribution to a healthy environment.”
The “Wild Rivers” partnership, which is visible at retailers across the nation, aims to raise awareness and increase stewardship of rivers that sustain our communities and ecosystems. Since the program’s start in 2009, more than $400,000 has been donated to its partners to help preserve vital waterways across the country. A portion of these proceeds have supported Ohio River Foundation’s (ORF) work to restore the Stillwater River in Ohio and Beaver Creek in Kentucky to their historic free-flowing conditions, and support ORF’s Youth Conservation Teams program – performing habitat protection and restoration projects in Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky!
“Sierra Nevada is known not only known for its quality and integrity, but for the environmental stewardship trail they’ve blazed over the years,” said Rich Cogen, Executive Director, Ohio River Foundation. “We are proud to partner with such a great company, and with the public’s help, we can conserve precious habitat for fish, wildlife and people.”
Founded in 1980, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. is one of America’s first microbreweries and remains highly regarded for using only whole-cone hops and ingredients of the highest quality. Sierra Nevada has set the standard for artisan brewers worldwide as a winner of numerous awards for their line of beers and ales including the flagship Pale Ale, Torpedo, Porter, Stout, four seasonal beers, Harvest Ale series and a host of draft-only specialties. www.sierranevada.com
