CANS COMING SEPTEMBER 1, 2015 – EVENTS ALL SEPTEMBER
During the Gettysburg Brew Fest Saturday, I had a chance to catch up with Victory Brewing Company’s very own, Megan Moore. While there, I got a sneak peek of the can design and new artwork for Headwaters Pale Ale.
You can get your cans starting September 1, 2015 and by doing so you’re helping a great cause. A portion of the proceeds from each bottle and can sold will go toward the Victory Headwaters Grant benefiting local water advocacy groups. Water is, of course, essential to making beer. The quality of the water can make or break your brew. That’s why Victory Brewing Co. puts their money where their mouth is in an effort to protect every drop of H2O that goes into their product.
FUN FACT: Check out the hop on the can very closely. See how it’s actually a creek leading into the word “Headwaters?” Clever. #GoodDesignMatters
The grant that is helping protect the Brandywine Watershed was started five years ago and has given $35,000 to Brandywine Valley Association and Guardians of the Brandywine to fund cleanup and restoration efforts. Victory’s Downingtown brewery and the new Parkesburg brewery sit within the Brandywine watershed.
“Just as a river forms from tiny droplets from the heavens, we see our engagement of a conscientious audience in the Headwaters Grant creating a larger impact,” explained Bill Covaleski, Victory’s brewmaster and president. “The grant has helped Guardians of the Brandywine preserve the Upper East Branch of the Brandywine Creek and the Brandywine Valley Association restore more than a mile of Little Buck Run in Parkesburg and Sadsbury Township. And those are just two projects of many.”
