Townsite Brewing recently expanded its community donation program to the Sunshine Coast, allocating 10 cents from every pint of Suncoast Pale Ale sold each month to Coast charities. Dubbed ‘Toast of the Coast’, the program runs now through to Labour Day.
The young Powell River brewery, with a strong commitment to social responsibility, launched the program in its home community The success of this program (to date it has raised more than $8,500) inspired the Townsite team to develop a similar program for the rest of the Sunshine Coast.
“We are very proud of the growler program,” said director of sales Michelle Zutz, “and have long discussed how to expand it along the Coast. Our Suncoast Pale Ale is draught-only and only available on the Sunshine Coast so we decided to use that.”
Quaff a pint of Suncoast at participating purveyors: Lighthouse Pub, Ruby Lake Resort, The Backeddy Pub, The Gumboot, and Sita’s Restaurant. The first recipient of the program is, appropriately, FUSE Community Work Hub for their Hop Yard Collective initiative.
The Backeddy Pub in Egmont elected to match Townsite’s donation if funds raised through their sales could be donated locally. Accordingly, 20 cents from each pint of Suncoast sold will be donated to the Egmont Community Club.
