Brooklyn Gave Back in 2013

Dirby & Erica, Acme Studios, 6.2.2011

Every year, Brooklyn Brewery supports the city’s many fundraisers, galas, benefits and art openings to fulfill our mission of enriching the communities that drink our beer. Since our founding in 1988, we’ve been proud to support local non-profits & arts organizations in our neighborhood. Now that we’re 25 years old, our community footprint is bigger than ever. Over 1,000 organizations were touched by our donations program in 2013, including NYC icons like Brooklyn Academy of Music, Brooklyn Museum, Transportation Alternatives, City HarvestSlideluck, and the Center for Architecture, and more local partners like City Reliquary, Eagle Street Rooftop Farm, and Dirty Looks. In 2013, we donated tens of thousands of dollars worth of beer to organizations like these all around NYC.

In addition to the events thrown off-site, we bring a variety of organizations into the Brewery Tasting Room. The New York Aquarium, WNYC, Cycle for Life & Riverkeeper are just a few of the organizations benefiting from our community nights here on Brewer’s Row.

We’ve already brought on new partners for 2014 (we’re looking at you, Gowanus Canal Conservancy) and we’re excited for more to come! Cheers to a great year ahead of us.
