Community

We feel a strong sense of responsibility to use our business as a platform to give back to the community that supports us. Through a combination of non-profit partnerships and sustainability initiatives, we intend to be a force for good in our community. As a young, growing company, we love working with small, local non-profits and grassroots organizations that are looking to increase awareness in addition to raising funds. See our community partners below.

Socktoberfest

BeLoved Asheville is a non-profit organization with innovative solutions to some of the toughest challenges we face as a community, such as houselessness. In October 2020, we hosted “Socktoberfest'' and collected supplies such as socks, camping gear, blankets, and essentials needed to get ready for the upcoming cold months. Through the combination of customer monetary donations and our $1 per flight sold initiative, BeLoved Asheville was able to purchase 50 cold-weather tents for people in need.

Furr-Ever Valentine

Friends of Madison County Animals works to reduce the number of unwanted animals and increase their well-being through a number of area wide programs, such as: Vaccine Clinics, Spay-Neuter, Pet Pantry, and “Chain Free Madison County”. In February 2021 we hosted a two-day Valentine’s Day event called “Furr-ever Valentine”, where in exchange for a donation, guests were able to get a family portrait taken with their pets in our tasting room. With the help of those donations, we were able to give over $600 to FOMCA to use toward those programs.

Diaper Drive

Babies Need Bottoms is an organization that provides resources to help parents in WNC that are experiencing diaper need. In May 2021, we collected diapering supplies from community members and donated $1 for each full pour of beer sold through the month. With the monetary donations we were able to give BNB, they purchased 6,578 diapers for their diaper bank, and received almost 1,000 diapers from donations from the community.

Pride Month

Youth OUTright’s mission is to engage and support LGBTQIA+ youth ages 11-20 in WNC to be confident, resilient and compassionate community members. In honor of Pride Month for June 2021, we sold rainbow Ginger’s Revenge tote bags and donated 100% of the profits to YO. We also held a Meet & Greet with their staffers and the community to engage and learn more, where we donated $1 for each full pour sold that day. For the sales of the tote bags combined with donations to the organization, they’ve received over $1,000.

Sustainability

Our team is dedicated to doing what we can to lower our impact on the environment.
See our sustainability initiatives below.

recycling-icon

Recycling - We partner with the WNC Brewery Recycling Cooperative to recycle all the hard-to-dispose-of plastic strapping and soft plastics.

packaging-icon

Packaging Materials - 100% of our packaging materials are recyclable. We encourage you to recycle your bottles and 4-pack carriers!

agriculture-icon

Organic Agriculture - 100% of our base fermentable, cane sugar, is organic. Instead of using synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, our sugar is sourced from one of the largest sustainable agriculture projects in the world.

ginger-icon

Organic Ginger - 100% of our imported Peruvian & dried ginger is organic, avoiding harsh pesticides and herbicides.

local-icon

Local Sourcing - We purchase from local farms when produce is in season. This includes ginger root as well as a variety of herbs such as thai basil and anise hyssop.

composting-icon

Composting - Our compost (approximately 250 pounds per 930 gallons of ginger beer brewed) is picked up by a local community gardening initiative. It’s important to redirect local green waste into a composting system for community use.

lightbulb-icon

Energy Use - LEDs and motion sensor lights reduce our lighting energy consumption.

growler-icon

Growler Program - We encourage customers to purchase beer in reusable glass growlers. If a 32 oz growler is filled just three times in a month, this can help reduce almost 100 glass bottles from being used over the course of a year!
