Grist Iron Brewing Co. invites the public to attend their Benevolence Beer Kick-Off Party on Thursday, January 11, 2018 at 5:00 pm. Enjoy light appetizers while listing to the rockin’ sounds of “The Sweats” and support the work of Seneca Lake Pure Waters Association (SLPWA) by having them pour you a cold Hefeweizen.
“Seneca Lake is a fundamental part of our brewery – the lake provides water, scenery and inspiration.” said Kate Fuller of Grist Iron Brewing.
“Last fall, we decided that we wanted to honor Seneca Lake by selecting a Benevolence Beer Series recipient that was getting their hands and feet wet while tackling the lake’s current water quality issues – Seneca Lake Pure Waters Association was the natural choice.”
SLPWA has designed and implemented crucial water quality monitoring programs. They have over 100 volunteers collecting water samples upstream, downstream and in the lake. The water samples are analyzed by NYS certified labs and the results are available on their website. SLPWA also encourages the greater Seneca Lake community to jump in and help preserve the lake’s water quality by implementing simple lake-friendly living practices such as using phosphorus free fertilizers and planting native plants to create vegetative buffers.
A portion of the proceeds from each pint of Hefeweizen sold between January to June will be donated to Seneca Lake Pure Waters Association to support their water quality monitoring projects.
