LA’s largest craft brewery has been working with the non-profit to create a specialty brew, Heal the Bay IPA, with proceeds benefiting Heal the Bay’s work towards making Southern California’s coastal waters and watersheds, including the Santa Monica Bay, safe, healthy and clean.
Says President Meg Gill, “I surf most weekends in Santa Monica, and I fell in love with Heal the Bay when I saw the work they were doing to protect the shoreline after a storm. Heal the Bay’s work is an integral part of keeping our beaches clean and safe, and we’re excited to collaborate on a project that will benefit their cause.”
Heal the Bay IPA will be premiering on draft on Saturday, April 20th, at the BlueGreen Earth Day Party on the Santa Monica Pier. Guests can purchase a sustainable Golden Road mug for $10, and receive vouchers for pours of any Golden Road Beer at Rusty’s Surf Ranch, Big Dean’s Ocean Front Cafe, and Santa Monica Pier Seafood from 12-5 PM. Arrive early for a beach cleanup from 10 AM-noon, followed by a Green Market swap and sustainable goods expo.
Adds co-founder Tony Yanow, “Golden Road is located right by the LA River, where much of Heal the Bay’s education efforts are focused, so we understand how important it is to help keep inland and coastal waterways clean. Heal the Bay is the perfect partner for us as we all work together to preserve the natural beauty and resources of California.”
Heal the Bay IPA is bright, citrus-forward, summertime drinking IPA, with Citra, Centennial, and New Zealand hop varieties. Look out for Heal the Bay IPA in 16 oz. cans starting in mid-June at Whole Foods Markets and other select retailers.
