Together Is Better

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 and Barrel Houses 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 each month we will support a cause that generates 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.  When we can, we will align the cause with an awareness month, though this may not always be possible.  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:

  1. Receive an up front donation from us.
  2. Have the opportunity to promote their cause on Thursday nights.
  3. Receive a portion of proceeds on Thursday nights.
  4. Be featured on signage throughout one or both of the taprooms.
  5. Be featured on our round up campaign via our POS so that customers can support as well.

So drink up and help us give back!

Giving To-Date

Since opening in February of 2020, we have given over $34,000 back to our community by supporting our partners and it is because YOU support us.  Let’s keep it going!

Our Partner for March

We believe access to education is the fundamental right for all — not just a privilege for those who can afford it.

Our all-girls secondary boarding school, the Gashora Girls Academy of Science and Technology, was founded to enable Rwanda’s young women to reach their full potential, becoming the future scientists, entrepreneurs, advocates, and thought leaders that the world needs. These young women will bring insights and solutions to the biggest global challenges we face.

The Gashora Girls are the most engaged and intellectually curious young women in Rwanda, and we’re fostering a culture that encourages them to boldly seek answers to some of the world’s biggest challenges and spark positive change in their communities. Their brilliant minds will lead Rwanda (and the world!) into a brighter, more equitable future.

The students at Gashora Girls Academy have diverse backgrounds, traditions, and beliefs. They represent every geographic region of Rwanda and every socioeconomic status. The community values respect for all experiences and perspectives. Because of this, they are better equipped to lead with empathy, understanding, and compassion. We’re fostering a generation of leaders who not only know how to think critically but also have a rich appreciation for the ongoing success of their country.
