In time for St. Patrick’s Day 2020, Hopworks Urban Brewery is set to release Evergreen Dry Irish Stouton Friday the 13th at all three HUB locations.
The month of March also happens to be B Corp Month that honors and celebrates Certified B Corporations. To do its part, HUB has brewed a green, earth friendly Dry Irish-Style Stout. Evergreen Dry Irish Stout features a tan head, rich coffee aroma and creamy mouthfeel as it is poured on Nitro!
“We’re excited to brew ‘green’ beer every day with practices that drive quality, protect the environment and support the community,” said Christian Ettinger, founder and brewmaster at Hopworks, in a press release. “We wanted to flip the idea of green beer on St. Patrick’s Day on its head. Throw in the fact that March is B Corp month and you’ve got a perfect reason to brew and drink green beer.”
Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corps form a community of leaders and drive a global movement of people using business as a force for good. In addition, Hopworks will donate 1% of 2020 beer sales to three environmental nonprofits: Friends of Trees, The Street Trust, and The Nature Conservancy through its 1% For The Planet membership.
Below is a video, Green Beer Time with Christian Ettinger that brings more information on this beer and how the brewery is a steward for the environment.
