LONGMONT, Colo. — Drink beer and support Can’d Aid Foundation – this is the task set before you from CANarchy Craft Brewery Collective, who just released their VOL. 1 Mixed Pack of brews.
The first of its kind from CANarchy Craft Brewery Collective, the Mixed Pack offers fan-favorite canned beers from four breweries. Craft beer enthusiasts can get a taste of Jai Alai IPA from Cigar City Brewing, Black Ale from Perrin Brewing Company, Hop Rising IPA from Squatters Craft Beers and the original craft beer in a can, Dale’s Pale Ale from Oskar Blues Brewery, all in one box.
These four CANarchy Craft Brewery Collective members have partnered with Can’d Aid Foundation to host bike builds, where community members gather to build bicycles for predominately low-income local schools. Collectively, the four breweries represented in the Mixed Pack have raised money to purchase bikes, host bike builds and donate bicycles and helmets to more than 770 elementary students in six states. For many of these kids, the bikes received from Can’d Aid are the first they have ever owned.
“Call me a rebel, but I have always felt like if you have a choice between doing bad and doing good, choose the good,” said Cigar City Brewing Founder & CEO Joey Redner. “Can’d Aid is doing a lot of good and it’s great to be able to play a small part in it.”
For every case of the Mixed Pack sold, $1 benefits Can’d Aid Foundation, which aims to improve communities from the ground up. Formed five years ago in immediate response to the massive flooding that devastated Lyons and Longmont, Colorado, Can’d Aid has since raised more than $4 million to support their four program areas: Towns, Tunes, Treads + Trails and Love Yur Mama.
CANarchy hopes to donate $10,000 to Can’d Aid Foundation this year through the sales of the Mixed Pack’s initial limited rollout. Find it in North Carolina and Florida today, with more markets coming soon.
