Growlers are 1.89L jugs of the freshest craft beer that you fill (and refill!) right at the brewery. Because you can only get growlers in Powell River, we wanted to make sure a portion of the proceeds stay in the community by committing $1 from every growler sale to local non-profits. Since we launched our growlers at the end of April 2012, we have given more than $5000 directly to non-profits within Powell River. WOW!!
October proceeds of $462 were given to the Townsite Heritage Society for their Triangle Gardens Irrigation Project. For more information on the project, check out this edition of Powell River Living.
For November, we are proud to support The Bruce Denniston Bone Marrow Society. This Powell River society has been in the business of helping save lives since 1988. They educate the public about the need for bone marrow donors, and raise funds in support of the work of the One Match stem cell and marrow network, a program of Canadian Blood Services. One Match registers potential bone marrow donors and matches them to patients needing transplants, while Bruce Denniston Bone Marrow Society volunteers interact with patients and their families on a personal level.
