Common Charity

Common Space has not one but two charity beers out in the wild now…

#1 – “Let’s have a Kiki! Cosmic Kiki Hazy IPA has arrived from the mysterious reaches of the cosmos to get the Pride party started. Available today in the taproom, for pickup or home delivery, snag a pint or a 4-pack today and give back to PFLAG Manhattan Beach, an amazing local organization fighting for LGBTQIA youth rights, advocating for equitable education, and providing familial support.”

#2 – “Ogg IPA is officially canned, kegged and ready to pour! A portion of proceeds of this limited release beer will be donated to @socalalzofficial and #TheLongestDay to help in the fight against Alzheimer’s.”

Keep Practicing

Practice is not a bad word, especially when we are practicing to be better. Almanac Beer Co. wants to remind us of that and to be better people towards all groups, including AAPI folks. So practice your hazy tasting of El Dorado, Centennial and Motueka hops.

Help the Butterfly

Five Threads Brewing north of L.A. in Westlake Village is “releasing an Organic IPA with a special cause at its core. Vanishing Beauty is our effort to rally support for the critically endangered Western Monarch Butterfly. Numbers of these majestic migrators have fallen from 4.5 million to 2,000 in just the last 40 years. Integral to the pollination of much of our local flora, these creatures must be protected at all costs, and a portion of the sales from Vanishing Beauty will be put to that use.

Vanishing Beauty was brewed with 100% organic ingredients including Bravo, Simcoe, Sultana, Calipso, and Mosaic hops. Expect a light and crisp body buoyed by notes of grapefruit zest and a subtle floral medley. This can with a cause is available today in our tasting room and online, and if you’d like to do even more to help protect the Western Monarch Butterfly please visit our website to find out how you can make a difference.”

The brewery is also releasing a quintuple IPA named 5X as well. A hoppy way to help the earth.

An Anvil of Hope

AleSmith has set-up a new nonprofit with a heavy name, Anvil of Hope. The goal of the organization is in three parts, A) assist low-income families facing homelessness B) assist youth aging out of foster care C) help neighbors experiencing financial hardships. This effort from AleSmith owners Peter and Vicky Zien will hopefully spread hope and hops.
