BREWERY NEWS

 

Full labels

New Labels

We felt that our great beer deserved a great new label. Starting this month, you should see our new bottle packaging throughout the Bay Area distributed through a new partnership with Morris Distributing! (We’ll still distribute kegs ourselves – wouldn’t want the Ambrewlance to get rusty.)

Here is some press on the new labels along with some recent kudos from design experts:

Big shout out to Eric Read and Brandmade Design for coming up with these great labels http://brandmadeby.us/

Pretty exciting considering they have not even reached the store shelves yet!

April 21st – Friends of Corte Madera Creek Watershed

Friends of Corte Madera Creek Watershed, an all-volunteer, non-profit organization, was founded in 1995 to protect the remaining natural ecosystems of the area, especially those relating to urbanized creeks and wetlands, and where possible to increase the diversity of these ecosystems. They recognize that all activities – human and natural – within a watershed are interconnected, so that a wide range of issues must be addressed to meet our goals. Friends encourages residents and businesses to adopt creek-friendly practices, and works with local governments and public agencies to advocate for policies that benefit natural ecosystems. Hands-on activities are focused on creek clean-ups and habitat enhancement projects on public property.  Find out more at http://friendsofcortemaderacreek.org.

April 28th – San Anselmo Cooperative Nursery School

SACNS_logoFounded originally in 1947 as the Fairfax Community Nursery School, the San Anselmo Co-Op is celebrating its 65th year in operation. Except for the faces of the children and their parents, since then little has changed. The goal of the preschool is to foster physical, emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual growth in each child.  The school provides a unique experience for families who wish to be involved in their children’s education and learn alongside them. By sharing parenting issues, insights, joys and struggles, parents gain a sense of community with one another and a greater understanding of their own child’s development. Through their participation, parents create the kind of school they desire for their children. Their many talents, strengths and interests provide the energy that fuels the school. By relying on parent ingenuity, teamwork and labor, we keep fees low and the school available to a wide spectrum of people.  Find out more at www.sananselmocoop.com.

We’ll see you at the pub!
