Brewgooder — 250 Breweries Unite!

Talk about being a part of something bigger. In 2018, Citizen teamed up with Brewgooder, an organization that brings clean water for 1,000,000 people through the power of craft beer - by donating 100% of their profits to clean water charities. The idea? Unite over 250 breweries, from 24 different countries around the globe, to make a beer that makes a difference.

The Beerded Lady

In celebration of International Women’s Day, each year we collaborate with some amazing women in the community to brew something extra delicious. This year a strawberry rhubarb ISA was brewed and called the Beerded Lady. Proceeds from the sales went directly to The Pink Boots Society. The Pink Boots Society exists to assist, inspire, and encourage female beer professionals through education.

We are all Citizens

Each year, we’re proud to support equality, diversity, and safe, inclusive spaces. Our One Love Hazy ISA launches for pride week and proceeds have been donated to local LGBTQ charities and initiatives. This beer is a reminder to be kind to one another and celebrate all the unique qualities that make each and every one of us special.

Spent Grain Program

We currently donate all our spent grain to local Biodynamic farms and small animal farms such as pigs and chickens.

Music Program

We love to support local music, and run weekly live music from the brewery when every Tuesday evening in the taproom. We recently launched our first edition of “This Show is Yours” music series, showcasing local musicians and bands. Many of our staff are ex or current musicians and felt it was a perfect fit for Citizen to get behind and support.

Check out recent sessions here.

Community Charity Initiatives

We support many local charities from community associations, raising money for playgrounds, to food bank food drives, to paying for equipment for less fortunate children to play sports. At Citizen we try to give as much back as we ask from our communities.

Citizen Lifestyle Brands

Packaged Sauces - BBQ and Hot Sauces all made in house, we hope to bring these into grocery accounts to help keep Citizen front of mind even when you’re not buying beer.

Body Care (in development) – Beer Soaps, Beard Oils, Beard Balms, Hand Cream, lip balms all having a different aspect of the brewery in each product. Infused hop oils, spent grains, beer all go into the making of these products.
