Last September, we wrote about seven water conserving breweries that were doing their part to conserve water, whether at the brewery or out in the world. One of those breweries was Atlanta’s SweetWater Brewing, which over the last decade has raised over $250,000 for the Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper through its Save the Hooch campaign.
SweetWater continues the campaign with the release of the SweetWater Waterkeeper Hefeweizen, which the brewery hopes will “raise awareness for Waterkeepers and assist them in their fight to preserve our rivers, streams and coastlines.”
A refreshing hefeweizen is a fitting beer to raise this summer in honor of waterkeepers, which patrol rivers, streams and coastlines to ensure the water is fishable, swimmable and drinkable. The Waterkeeper Hefeweizen was first released at the River Revival in Atlanta on May 19, and it is now in limited supply across the southeast in bottles as well as draft.
To donate to SweetWater’s “Save the Hooch” campaign, visit waterkeeperbrew.org. If you do, you can say that you “gave of your liver to save a river.”
