Friends in the news

Celebrate trees by drinking a beer

The Brewers Grove project started in 2013 when local brewers asked Friends of GR Parks (FGRP) how they could celebrate being named Beer City USA by give back to our parks and public spaces.  And the idea was seeded to create tree-themed beers that would be offered for a limited time with proceeds going directly to FGRP's Urban Forest Project and tree plantings.  In 2013, a Brewers Grove of 30 trees was planted at Riverside Park with volunteers from local breweries.

Learn more about what you can do for our community's trees at www.urbanforestproject.com.

Once again, tree-themed beers will be available from Friday, August 29 through Friday, September 12 (or until they run out!) A KICK-OFF EVENTwill be held at Harmony Brewing Co. on Friday, August 29 at 5 pm. In addition to Harmony's tree beer, beers from Pike 51, White Flame and Cellar Brewing Co. will also be on tap!

To celebrate this great collaboration, we'll be hosting a BREWER'S GROVE PARK PARTY on Friday, September 12 at Riverside Park. Meet the minds behind the Tree Beers and enjoy "Strange Brew" on the big screen! Be sure to stop on the way to pick up your favorite Tree Beer in a Growler to enjoy at the event.
