In the Community

 

CHARITY PINTS PROGRAM

At Lake of the Woods Brewing Company, we believe in giving back to our community & region. The CHARITY PINTS program is designed to make a difference in the communities of Kenora, Lake of the Woods region, Thunder Bay and Winnipeg.

Every month we pick a craft beer. Then we donate $0.25 of every featured pint sold in the Taproom & Growler sold in our beer store, over the course of the month. By choosing the CHARITY PINT, you are supporting our social impact investments. There’s never been a better reason to join us for a pint of craft beer or to take-away a Growler to share with family and friends.

In 2016, the CHARITY PINTS program supported:

  • Rotary Club Splash Park (Kenora)
  • Lake of the Woods Water Sustainability Foundation (Kenora)
  • Path of the Paddle (Thunder Bay)
  • Habitat for Humanity (Kenora chapter)
  • Mood Disorders Association of Manitoba (Winnipeg)

  • Beat the Heat (Kenora)
  • Lake of the Woods Museum
  • Alzheimer Society of Kenora/ Rainy River District
  • Regional Food Distribution Association (Thunder Bay)
  • Triple Play
  • Assiniboine Zoo (Winnipeg)

  • Kenora and Lake of the Woods Water Regional Community Foundation
  • Ronald McDonald House (Winnipeg)
  • Lake of the Woods District Hospital Foundation

WHERE’S THE BEEF?

Charity Beef on a Bun is a taproom fundraiser for the Women’s Shelter, Saakaate House. Find us on the stage in the taproom every Friday from 4:00PM – 6:00PM serving up beef on a bun! It only costs $5, with $2 going towards the Women’s Shelter!

Grab a bun and a pint of your favourite LOWBREWCO beer, and celebrate the weekend!
