BRACEBRIDGE, ON – Muskoka Brewery has announced the launch of a fundraising initiative in support of local non-profit organizations, as well as an associated series of limited edition beers.
The Muskoka Brewery Community Venture Fund is described as “a series of grants bestowed upon worthy non-profit causes close to our hearts: projects to clean our lakes and rivers, create trails to share the natural beauty of Muskoka, increase sustainability and improve lives for those in our communities.”
The fund has been seeded with proceeds and donations from Muskoka Venture Fest, an event that took place at the brewery last month. Ongoing funding will also come from sales of beers in the new Community Venture Collection, which has launched with an American Blonde Ale (5% abv, 15 IBU) that “has been aged in Chardonnay barrels, imparting beautifully bright fruit notes with bready malt and light vinous funk.”
Community Venture Collection beers will be available exclusively at the Muskoka Brewery retail store and online shop, with $1 from each bottle sold going to the Community Venture Fund. For more details, see the Muskoka Brewery website.
