We love this world of ours. Our Community Tap program is one way that we model sustainability as a business. Each month we partner with like-minded, local, nonprofit organizations that we admire and respect. We donate 1% of all of our pub’s pint sale proceeds to that month’s partner organization. For the month of February, we’re sending those proceeds to Friends of Trees, a nationally recognized, regional leader in improving the urban tree canopy and restoring sensitive natural areas.

Friends of Trees plants tens of thousands of trees and native shrubs throughout Western Oregon and Southwest Washington with thousands of volunteers every year. Trees cool our planet, clean our air and water, provide habitat and food, and trees actually make us healthy! And when planted the Friends of Trees way, trees also grow community.
