Hopworks Releases “Green Beer” On St. Patrick’s Day To Celebrate B Corp Month
As a B Corp celebrating its five-year certification anniversary this March, Hopworks Urban Brewery has announced the release of Evergreen Dry Irish Stout. Featuring a tight tan head, rich coffee aroma and creamy mouthfeel, this limited edition nitro stout will be on tap exclusively at Hopworks’ three locations beginning March 13.
“We’re excited to brew ‘green’ beer every day with practices that drive quality, protect the environment and support the community,” said Christian Ettinger, founder and brewmaster at Hopworks. “We wanted to flip the idea of green beer on St. Patrick’s Day on its head. Throw in the fact that March is B Corp month and you’ve got a perfect reason to brew and drink green beer.”
Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corps form a community of leaders and drive a global movement of people using business as a force for good. In addition, Hopworks will donate 1% of 2020 beer sales to three environmental nonprofits: Friends of Trees, The Street Trust, and The Nature Conservancy through its 1% For The Planet membership.
