Gathering Place Launches Community Supported Brewery Program
For the first year of the program, each CSB member will receive an extra growler added to their subscription.
Gathering Place Brewing Company has launched a Community Supported Brewery (CSB) program where members receive growlers of fresh beer each month at a discounted price. The new program is modeled after Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs where customers purchase a membership and then receive shipments of produce and other goods directly from small farmers.
“Just as CSAs allow members to access the freshest food possible, our CSB program will provide members with the freshest beer possible,” said Joe Yeado, founder and president of Gathering Place Brewing Company. “We’re very excited to launch this program and engage local beer drinkers to experience fresh beer directly from the source.”
“Beer is best when it’s fresh and the CSB members will be able to choose from a range of beers to take home each month,” said Head Brewer Corey Blodgett. “We have an exciting lineup of seasonal and special release beers coming up in the next few months and the CSB members will be the first to know and try them out.”
The CSB program has a limited number of memberships which can be purchased individually or be given as gifts for others. For the first year of the program, each CSB member will receive an extra growler added to their subscription.
“Our goal is to connect our community with our creative and unique beers,” said Yeado. “The CSB program is the perfect way to connect people who love craft beer with the people who brew it.”
Gathering Place Brewing Company is an independent brewery in the Riverwest neighborhood dedicated to crafting vibrant and unique beers that reflect the vibrant and unique community it calls home. Community engagement is integral to the business and Gathering Place will donate at least 1% of sales each quarter to local non-profit organizations. The brewery plans to be open in mid-summer.
