Community Tap

Our community Tap program helps keep our community healthy and vibrant—expanding what it means to model sustainability. We partner with like-minded, local, nonprofit organizations that we admire and respect. Each month we donate 1% of all of our pub’s pint sale proceeds to a partner organization. We also provide opportunities for our HUB team to volunteer with a number of our partner organizations.

Money Raised

Since beginning our Community Tap program in 2015 we have raise more than $26,000 for our partnering organizations. In 2018 our goal is to raise an additional $14,000. So come in, grab a pint, and a raise pint to our great, community non-profits!
