On August 1st, 2016 Lagunitas will open their first ever Community Room in Portland, OR. The Community Room will be a space solely dedicated for local non-profit organizations to host fundraisers and events for their charities…for free! That’s right, in true Lagunitas fashion, the Community Room and lots of Lagunitas beer will be donated to the charities as a way of sewing into their worthy causes. Lagunitas will also have staff present at these fundraisers to make sure that everything runs smoothly. Here’s what Lagunitas has to say about it:
We’re excited to announce that we are expanding the way we participate in some of the great communities that have helped us learn and grow as brewers. We believe that beer is the original social media and we know that the best way to connect with beer lovers is face to face, over a beer.
Portland will be the first of the Lagunitas Community Rooms with the second location opening up in San Diego, CA in January 2017. “We expect to be surprised by the things that we encounter as we grow these relationships. This will be a big learning experience for us” says Lagunitas founder Tony Magee. This Community Room project is just another reason to love Lagunitas.

Cheers to spreading love through generosity.
