A Summary of 2010’s Contributions
Boulder, Colorado – January 2011 – Twisted Pine Brewing Company has long been a believer in community involvement. “Giving back to the community is built into the core of our company, it’s a part of our mission statement and, while we always have fun hosting events, we take our contributions very seriously,” says general manager Jody Valenta.
Over the past 12 months the brewery was able to collect 1,000 lbs of food for EFAA(Emergency Family Assistance Association) a local food cupboard, through their canned food drive. The brewery offered, and continues to offer a promotion that encourages customers to bring in 3 canned food items for a free pint of beer.
This month, the brewery will begin employing members of Imagine!. Imagine! supports services to people with developmental delays and cognitive disabilities. They will be assisting with box construction and mixed 12 pack assembly.
The Ale House at Twisted Pine hosted one benefit event every month for the past 12 months. The events serve to raise a substantial amount of awareness and critical funds for various organizations. “This is a win-win situation for everyone involved,” says brewery owner Bob Baile. “It’s great to work with local organizations to help build awareness, make new friends and give back to the community that has supported us for the past fifteen years.” A few of the organizations partnered with in 2010 include the Autism Society of Boulder, the Colorado Therapeutic Riding Center and KGNU public radio.
