New Community Pint Day Non-Profits!
Community Pint Day is one of the ways we like to “do good while drinking well” at Portsmouth Brewery. The premise is simple. Every Tuesday, we give you a wooden token for each pint of beer you order. You, the beer drinker, then take your tokens to our Community Pint Day box and place them in the section of the non-profit of your choice. There are always four great options and we do our best to keep things local or regional. Each token is good for a 25¢ donation. At the end of the quarter, we send a check to each of the partners.
If you’ve paid attention to the box in the past, you know we tend to support animal welfare organizations, cycling initiatives, land preservation and humanitarian causes from equal opportunities, but if you know a worthwhile non-profit, please ask them to send more information through our contact form.
Spring 2015’s Community Pint Day options are ready for your tokens!
