But shipping of highly rated craft beer is not all that Tavour accomplishes. During the COVID-19 pandemic Tavour stepped up to help give back to the craft beer community and more specifically various state brewers guilds. In all, Tavour donated $25,000 to craft brewers guilds to help them keep breweries afloat during this challenging time as well as help pass very important laws to support them in the future.
Tavour raised $2,800 for the Oregon Brewers Guild and $4,000 for the Washington Brewers Guild. These funds were put to good use by these brewers guilds.
“Event revenue came to an abrupt halt in mid-March, and membership-based organizations aren’t eligible for most of the federal assistance that’s since been approved,” wrote Tony Roberts, Co-Executive Director of the Oregon Brewers Guild. “That makes the donation from Tavour a financial lifeline for our guild as we advocate for Oregon breweries at the state and federal level.”
Roberts continued, “This type of generosity is paramount to the survival of our guild during this period of uncertainty. We’re thrilled that Tavour took a leadership role in stepping up and supporting the beer industry.”
“The impacts of COVID-19 on our guild’s fundraising abilities were swift, dramatic and hit us at a time when the small and independent breweries we represent need us the most,” wrote Annie McGrath, Executive Director of the Washington Brewers Guild. “Our guild has been busy ensuring WA breweries can continue to operate as essential businesses during the stay at home order, ensuring we can make to go sales and deliveries during the stay at home order, and advocating for breweries to be sure breweries were included in Phase 2 re-openings for WA State.”
“We’ve also been working overtime to get the rapidly changing info about this ever-changing regulatory landscape to our members so that they can make informed decisions for their businesses during this extremely challenging time,” continued McGrath. “The Tavour box benefiting the WA Brewers Guild gave our guild a boost when we really needed it and has gone a long way toward our efforts to promote, protect and support the great small and independent breweries of WA State. Thank you, Tavour, for your support of state guilds and independent craft brewers!”
