De-Putinize

Russian River Brewing has done up a one-off – new version of Defenestration.

It “is a “West meets East Coast-style IPA” with tons of juicy hop aroma and bitterness. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to humanitarian efforts to help Ukrainian refugees. Defenestration and Putin Huylo will be released in cans only at both pubs and Gift Shops around the 1st of April. A very small amount of each beer will be available online as well! Stay tuned for more updates. Thank you for joining us in supporting and helping the people of Ukraine!”

Jolene

Party Beer Co. not only wants you to drink beer but help out animals as well with their new release, Jolene Beane IPA. JB-IPA is described as “a light bodied, approachable IPA hopped with Simcoe, Amarillo, Sabro & Mosaic. A portion of proceeds from this limited run will be donated to the Tiger Frances Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to ending the abuse of all animals through innovative educational programs.

Comfort Level

The two collaborating breweries for this hazy DIPA need no introduction. But the reason for highlighting Get Comfortable 2021 is not the hops but rather, the fact that this is another charity beer. You get great beer and the world gets better.

Street Vendors

I strongly suggest that you check in with the Brewjeria social media, because they are combining with some folks to assist street vendors with a beer named “Los Vendors”. Below is the info…

“Street vendors in Los Angeles have been hurt badly by COVID-19. Many can’t work and those who are trying to work, risk heavy fines and criminal penalties. Many have also been victims of senseless attacks. In an effort to help alleviate some of the financial burden, we have partnered together for a special collaborative beer project.

A portion of proceeds from this special beer will support the Street Vendor Emergency Fund, a cash assistance program that is providing $400 cash cards to undocumented street vendors who are struggling during the pandemic. The Fund is being organized by street vendors and the leadership of the LA Street Vendor Campaign.”

Strong


A week ago, Ladyface brewed a new beer. Not amazing in itself but this beer, Backbone IPA was created to raise funds after the devastating fire that was practically at their doorstep. They collaborated with other local breweries for this “Strength in Community” release. Ladyface has partnered with the charity campaigns of YMCA’s LVFireRelief and the Ventura County Community Foundation ensures that 100% of the proceeds benefit those affected by the recent tragedies.
