The 'Good Beer Doing Good' Box
Brewers are a good bunch. A select few of them are particularly special though. We wanted to shine a light on them. A case of twelve beers by breweries that are making the world a slightly better place.
Includes beers from the following breweries...
Tap Social Movement - Set up to create employment opportunities for people when they come out of prison. From their HQ in Oxford they are brewing some mighty fine beers and turning lives around in the process.
People Like Us - Based in Copenhagen, People Like Us is a brewing company run by autistic adults. One of their star employees, Rune Lindgreen, has Asperger syndrome. Before bagging a job here, Rune was out of work for almost ten years. He wasn’t alone in his struggle. Just 16% of autistic adults in the UK are in full-time paid employment, despite the vast majority saying they want to work.
Stroud Brewery - All of Stroud Brewery’s beers are organic and along with a bucket load of good stuff that the brewery does locally, their standout policy is to never supply any supermarket chains which “with remote shareholders have primarily an economic interest which draws on social and environmental capital”... hear, hear.
Wild Card Brewery - Jaega Wise, an old friend of Wild Card Brewery founders, William and Andrew, was convinced to quit her job as a city trader and use her Chemical Engineering degree to bring a bit of scientific rigour to the brewing process. She has since become the poster girl for female brewers, not just in London, but all over the world.
Toast Ale - 44% of all bread in the UK is wasted. Toast Ale are on a mission to change that. Their beer is brewed with unsold loaves from bakeries and unused crusts from sandwich makers. All of their profits go to Feedback, an environmental charity campaigning to end food waste.
BrewGooder - 650 million people in the world lack access to safe drinking water and almost 1,000 children die every day from completely preventable diseases because of this. Brewgooder have made it their mission to provide 1 million people with clean drinking water by using 100% of their profits from a selling a lager brewed at Brewdog’s Ellon HQ, to fund clean water projects in developing countries.
Good Things Brewing - The team are building a new brewery in the Sussex countryside from the ground up to be fully sustainable; from water to power, waste to distribution. They will be completely off-grid from the word go. “Ultimately, our end goal is to make the most sustainable beer in the world, from grain to glass and everything in between”.
