In less than a month, Triple Bottom Brewery has surpassed its $25,000 crowdfunding goal.
But the mission-driven brewery, due to open in one of two neighborhoods next summer, is ready to start giving back now — by introducing an interesting new incentive in hopes of reaching a new stretch goal of $30,000.
“For every $10 that someone contributes, they get a ticket in our lottery,” wrote cofounder Tess Hart in an email. “The lottery winner will get a chance to brew a beer with us, inspired by the organization or project of their choice (as long as it is mission-aligned with our work).”
That means workforce development for people in the shelter system or returning from prison. Hart said a percentage of the sales on that particular beer will go toward the organization of the winner’s choosing.
The type of beer, Hart said, will depend on equipment limitations. And, importantly, Triple Bottom hopes to brew a beer that will actually sell so it can help support the organization and itself. The winner can expect Triple Bottom to provide guidance based on the brewers’ own experience and “awareness of customer preference.”
Seems like a cool opportunity for nonprofits working in the homelessness and reentry spaces hoping make a little money — and a big batch of custom craft beer.-30-
