From the beginning we have focused on building a culture of caring individuals that share a passion for helping others. Brewing Better Communities is our way of connecting people to local needs and opportunities over a craft beer.
The 10K IPA series is one of our unique approaches providing targeted support to the causes we care about. This effort officially launched in January of 2021 with the intent to periodically raise awareness and money through beer sales and give at least $10,000 to a charitable organization committed to the cause. We are dedicated to making these 10K IPA partnerships four to six times a year so that we may provide continuous opportunities to build new and lasting relationships in the communities we are in.
Each year, SAVA provides confidential support to over 1,200 victims of sexual assault and provides education to over 1,000 community members and 9,000 students. SAVA now serves as the only rape crisis center in Larimer and Weld Counties dedicated exclusively to serving the needs of sexual assault survivors.

The 10K IPA will allow A Woman’s Place to provide crisis support and community training to stop domestic violence. For SAVA, the 10K IPA will benefit their prevention programming, which brings training and support to youth at local schools, camps and summer programs.
Aster Legawi and her family traveled from Sudan by way of multiple refugee camps to Greeley Colorado, where they have lived and worked for the last three years. While raising her 4 children alone, Aster has been working diligently to bring her husband to the United States from a refugee camp in Ethiopia to reunite their family. All the while the Legawi family has lived in a two-bedroom apartment that is in constant need of repair and frequently targeted by thieves and vandals.
Like many of us over the last year, the COVID-19 pandemic introduced new challenges such as attending school online and being quarantined to close quarters for extended periods of time. During this time, the children have had to take turns sitting in the bathroom to present to their class online. As a part of our Brewing Better Communities initiative to support affordable housing efforts, the proceeds of this quarters 10K IPA is going towards Aster’s partnership with Greeley-Weld Habitat for Humanity to provide her children with a safe and comfortable home where they can grow and learn.
