Charleston's Waterways Get Sweeter and Cleaner with SweetWater Brewing Company
PR Log - Aug 19, 2011 - Regional environmental advocate, and champion for clean water throughout the southeast, SweetWater Brewing Company officially signed on as Presenting Sponsor of the inaugural Charleston Pub Crawl which will be held on Saturday September 24, 2011 and benefits The Charleston Waterkeeper.
SweetWater Brewing Company’s commitment to clean water initiatives attracted the organizers of The Charleston Pub Crawl to the Atlanta-based brewing company. Their shared philosophy was made clear when after a recent fundraiser benefitting the Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper, SweetWater Brewing Company’s founder and Big Kahuna, Freddy Bensch stated, “It’s inspiring to see the people come together to help save one of this city’s most precious natural resources. Which of course, we love because a clean Chattahoochee River gives us the clean water we need to keep making great beer!” The Charleston Pub Crawl founder, Marc Williams, said, “After hearing that from Mr. Bensch, we knew SweetWater was who we wanted as our presenting sponsor.”
While celebrating Charleston’s right to clean water by raising awareness and money for The Charleston Waterkeeper, Participants of The Charleston Pub Crawl will receive steep discounts and samples of SweetWater Brewing Company beers such as SweetWater 420, Blue and IPA at more than 30 bars and restaurants, in historic downtown Charleston. To ensure responsible drinking, the restaurants will also be “selling” their clean, Charleston tap water for a one dollar donation, with 100% of those proceeds going to The Charleston Waterkeeper.
The Charleston Pub Crawl will also attempt to break the world’s record for largest pub crawl that will be recorded via ticket sales.
