This Tuesday, February 5; Iron Springs Pub and Brewery is featuring the CCBA in their “Give Back Tuesdays” program.
As a way to contribute to their community Iron Springs has instituted a program that on every Tuesday a percentage of the proceeds from the pub are donated to a local cause or organization. Recently, Iron Springs reached out to the CCBA asking to sponsor the CCBA as part of their February program.
This is a great opportunity for increased awareness of the CCBA, letting craft beer enthusiasts know who we are and how we help support the rights and privileges of California Craft Brewers.
Thank-you Iron Springs Pub and Brewery!
