A penny for your beer?

- April 16th, 2012

Or how about several pennies — all for a good cause?

Local craft beer start-up Village Brewery has teamed up with local arts and culture publication and website Fresh Bread Daily to help raise funds for local arts organizations.

The Penny Project asks people to fill a Village Brewery Growler, their eye-catching 1.89-litre beer jugs, with pennies and drop it off at the brewery. The copper will be put to use in support of the arts and donors will cop on a new growler filled with delicious Village Brewery beer. (May I recommend the Blacksmith IBA?)

Village is kicking things off this Saturday night at the brewery, and they’ll be handing out empty growlers for those who don’t already have a couple on hand at home (And if you don’t, why don’t you?).

The funds will go to support ongoing projects of fresh Fresh Bread, the Haight Gallery, which showcases emerging contemporary artists and offers Alberta College of Art & Design students research trips to New York, and AVALANCHE!, a gallery and studio space set to open June 1.

The kick-off party goes 7-9 p.m. April 21 at the brewery, at 5000 12A St. S.E.
