Our mission at The Good Society is to create a sense of community around great beer. That means many things to us. We want to create a space where all members of our community feel welcome and respected. We want our Public House to be a safe gathering spot where friends, families and neighbors can start or strengthen their connection to one another – all while enjoying a pint of delicious brew. But we don’t intend to stop there. We know that a lot of our friends and neighbors, including Mother Earth, may not be able to pull up a chair for a pint, but need our support and community, nonetheless. So for every pint poured, we will give a portion of the sale to a local nonprofit generating positive social or environmental impact in our world. Helping to create a good society…that’s what being a part of community means to us.
Here’s how it works: Each year our management team and select advisory board members will identify and evaluate local non-profits doing great work in our community and beyond and select two organizations to support for the coming 6-12 months. These organizations will be contacted in advance of being supported, offering them agency in the decision to partner with The Good Society. Those organizations that agree will be featured on our website, in our brewery and receive a semi-annual cash donation informed by customers voting as they enjoy their beers.
In addition to what we give back as a business, we also have begun featuring a brewing industry specific cause that customers can elect to support upon closing their tab. This is above and beyond what we give as part of our model.
So drink up and help us give back!
