Brewery’s annual campaign raises funds for Waterkeepers and other environmental groups across the nation
SweetWater Brewing Company’s annual "Save Our Water" program returns to Birmingham and Tuscaloosa in July and August to support Black Warrior Riverkeeper, a nonprofit clean water advocacy organization. Sales of t-shirts, custom pint glasses, and signature-ready "fundraising fish" at participating restaurants, bars and stores will raise funds and awareness for local water resources.
The "Save Our Water" program will be called "Save the Black Warrior" in Birmingham and Tuscaloosa. SweetWater’s local distributors, Birmingham Budweiser in Birmingham and Adams Beverages in Tuscaloosa, will help the brewery and Black Warrior Riverkeeper coordinate the program. Mountain High Outfitters will donate prizes to bartenders and servers who raise the most money for Black Warrior Riverkeeper at each of the participating businesses.
"Our collaboration with SweetWater has raised over $71,000 since 2008 for the vital but vulnerable Black Warrior watershed," said Charles Scribner, Executive Director of Black Warrior Riverkeeper. "The program returns to Birmingham for the first time since 2012 while continuing its 8-year streak in Tuscaloosa."
