Here at Tree Brewing, we strongly believe in giving back to the community especially when it's going to a good cause. Our way of showing our support is by donating $2.00 from every $4.00 taproom tasting fee to a variety of thoughtfully chosen charities. We have chosen nine different charities for 2014 with all of the proceeds benefiting local chapters. These organizations have been selected by one or more of our staff members who are directly connected to each of these causes.
Here's what's coming up for 2014...
JUNE - Tree Athlete Ambassador- Evan Guthrie
For the month of June, we will introduce our first 'Tree Ambassador', Evan Guthrie. Tree Ambassador's are young adults (legal drinking age) aspiring to become professionals in their given sport. These ambassador's have proven results with an amateur status, proven community involvement and are all around good people.
Guthrie is an Okanagan-born cross-country mountain bike racer for the Canadian National Team and the Norco Factory Team. The 22-year old already boasts an impressive resume such as competing in the Junior 17-18 year old category in the World Cup and World Championship races and a four-time National Champion in cross-country mountain biking and cyclo-cross. His biggest goal is to compete at the Olympics for Team Canada.
Thank you for your continued support of Tree Brewing Company.
