Overview

Join the AMC's Berkshire Chapter and Maine Beer Company for a night at The Foundry in Northampton. Several Maine Beer Company beers will be on tap, and a portion of these sales will support the AMC's conservation work in our region. Everyone in the local community is welcome to join us. Maine Beer Company's mission statement is… Do what's right. Make great beer. Have fun. ...therefore, as part of their monthly non-profit focus, this December Maine Beer Company will host events in multiple states that the Appalachian Trail passes through. On December 14th bars in 8 cities will have events in which a portion of proceeds from the evening will benefit the Appalachian Mountain Club and draw attention to their Outdoor Citizen campaign. MBC has selected Appalachian Mountain Club as one of their 1% For the Planet environmental non-profits because they saw a like-minded focus in to protecting the environment and encouraging people to get outdoors. The Appalachian Mountains pass through many of the areas where Maine Beer Company beers are distributed, and they recognized an opportunity to engage more people and drawing attention to the work of the AMC through their beer community both at home and in other states. Read on if you're interested in learning more about Maine Beer Company… Founding the company in 2009, David & Daniel Kleban wanted to prove that you could run a business while still doing what's right. Beyond the platitudes of giving back and being environmentally sound, the desire to "Do what's right" is a genuine philosophy that is embraced at all levels of the company. Through their partnerships with non-profits, their staff develops personal connections with their local community and environment. Opportunities to do more and create a symbiotic relationship with the environment & community often outweigh the opportunity to expand in a traditional business sense. While some businesses judge their success based on financial growth, at MBC success is gauged by how much they are able to give back, with each year in business seeing an increase in their donations of 1% For the Planet non-profits. The Maine Woods Initiative supported by the AMC ties in with Maine Beer Company's advocacy for the Katahdin Woods & Waters National Monument. In a state whose economy is increasingly defined by tourism, they recognize the importance of supporting land conservation, nature-based tourism, and community partnerships, all of which are central to the AMC. https://www.mainebeercompany.com/
