Let’s be honest. Sometimes, it can be pretty hard to get people to pay attention to environmental issues.
Enter the Texas Brewshed Alliance. This new initiative from the Wimberley Valley Watershed Association is on a mission to raise awareness of the importance of land and water conservation in Texas… with a little help from beer.
“Protecting your water is protecting your beer,”says Thomas Waymouth, program director for the Texas Brewshed Alliance.
On its website, the Texas Brewshed Alliance elaborates on this point – “The Wimberley Valley Watershed Association designed the Texas Brewshed Alliance Initiative to illuminate the overlapping interests between the conservation and beer communities. Protecting Texas lands and waters preserves the unique beauty of Texas for generations to come and also protects our top-notch downstream craft beer.”
So what do they do?
The Texas Brewshed Alliance is a coalition of breweries, environmental nonprofits, and individuals, all working together to host fun and educational events that raise awareness and funds around land and water conservation issues.
The idea is that by pairing up brewers and environmental nonprofits, entirely new groups of people can be connected to opportunities to help protect and improve the world around them.
