McKinleyville, CA—One of the reasons Six Rivers Brewery was selected Business of the Year by the McKinleyville Chamber of Commerce membership is for their ongoing support of local charities. Month-long fundraisers held at the brewery such as Ales for Autism for Families Advocating Autism Now (FAAN) and Beers for Balls for Nor Cal Pet Rescue are just two examples.
“This was our second time hosting Ales for Autism for FAAN which we chose to coincide with Autism Awareness Month in April. With the help of our generous community we raised $5000 bringing the total to more than $12,000 in two years,” said Meredith Maier Ripley, co-owner of Six Rivers Brewery.
Animal charities are also important causes to the Six Rivers Brewery crew.
“Spaying and neutering is one of the most important things any responsible pet owner can do. Many animals come into shelters and rescues unaltered and can’t be adopted until they are spayed or neutered. In an effort to help Nor Cal Pet Rescue with these costs we have teamed up for the first Beers for Balls,” said Talia Nachshon, co-owner of Six Rivers Brewery.
Beers for Balls is happening all month long at Six Rivers Brewery. The brewery will donate one dollar from every pint sold of Hammond Trail “Altered Ale” toward Nor Cal Pet Rescue Center’s Spay and Neuter Fund. A Trek Marlin 5 Mountain Bike will also be raffled off. The raffle drawing will be held at the Beers for Balls closeout party happening on the brewery’s brand-new outdoor patio, June 30th at 1300 Central Avenue in McKinleyville.
