During the Month of July, $5.00 of Every Ninkasi Keg Sold in Fort Collins and Surrounding Areas will be Donated to Poudre Fire Authority
EUGENE, OR.—June 28, 2016—Ninkasi Brewing Company has teamed up with Colorado wholesale partner, C.R. Goodman to offer a month-long give-back program in support of Poudre Fire Authority, called “Funds for Firefighters.” For every Ninkasi keg sold in Fort Collins and surrounding areas during the month of July, five dollars will be donated to support the Poudre Fire Authority and Life Safety Education Fund—a component of the Community Foundation of Northern Colorado, a 501(c)3 charitable organization.
“We have many great bars & restaurants on board for the inaugural kickoff of this program and we hope to grow Funds for Firefighters every year,” explains Matt Drengwitz Ninkasi Colorado market manager. “
“The men and women of Poudre Fire Authority are truly thankful to Ninkasi Brewing & C.R. Goodman for their generous support of the fire service and the people we serve,” says Madeline Noblette, Poudre Fire Authority spokeswoman. “Proceeds from beer sales will go to PFA’s Life Safety Education Fund, which supports purchases of smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, along with other fire and life safety education materials.”
“Anytime we are able to support a great cause by embracing & sharing our love of quality craft beer and our community, it’s a no-brainer,” explains Todd Luther, Colorado sales manager for C.R. Goodman. “To be able to give back to the Poudre Fire Authority in such a phenomenal craft market like Fort Collins is a tremendous opportunity that we jumped at the chance to participate.”
To take part in the program, beer drinkers are encouraged to order Ninkasi on-tap during the month of July throughout the Fort Collins area. Locations that serve Ninkasi can be found by visiting: http://www.ninkasibrewing.com/delicious/beer-finder.html.
