FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Stones Throw Brews Up Special “Fairhaven Park TrAle” to Benefit Recreation Northwest’s Trail Project in Fairhaven Park
BELLINGHAM, Wash., September 7, 2016— Stones Throw Brewery announces that a fresh batch of Fairhaven Park TrAle is now on tap in their southside location. A portion of each pint will go to support Recreation Northwest’s trail and wetland boardwalk project in Bellingham’s Fairhaven Park.
Owners, Tony Luciano and Jack Pflueger have dedicated to help raise money for Phase Two of Recreation Northwest’s community trail project. Stones Throw has supported the Fairhaven Park trail project from the beginning- when they provided Ginger Ale at the groundbreaking ceremony and a location for trail work party volunteers to gather afterwards. Now you can drink your fill of the Fairhaven Park TrAle and contribute to completing the wetland boardwalk and trail connecting Fairhaven Park to the urban forest trails.
“Working with Recreation Northwest on the Fairhaven Park Trail project was more than coincidental timing with the opening of our new southside brewery. We all share a harmonious passion for adventure and this place. Fairhaven is the Center of our Universe and the “Closest Pint to Adventure”,” explains Luciano, Head Brewer.
“Designing this beer seemed like a solid solution to quench the thirst of a hard working trail crew, and also promote Fairhaven and our partnership with Recreation Northwest.” Luciano describes the Fairhaven Park TrALE as “a citrusy delicious dry-hopped pale ale, brewed specifically for the trail work party volunteers and people out playing on our trails”.
Funds donated from the sale of Stones Throw’s Fairhaven Park TrALE are a part of larger community fundraising campaign- including support from the Fairhaven Lions Club, Alcoa Foundation, Satterburg Foundation, Patagonia Foundation, Brio Laundry and individual donors.
“We are delighted to be chosen by Stones Throw as a philanthropy partner in their first year. The vibe in their brewery is a reflection of the passion and commitment that they have poured into building the business and their commitment to our community,” said Todd Elsworth, Executive Director, Recreation Northwest. “Stones Throw’s contribution and community support will enable us all to have more fun and get cool stuff done in our neighborhood parks!”
