Victory to host fundraiser to benefit clean water

Headwaters-grantPARKESBURG — Victory Brewing Company will host Victory for the Headwaters, a daylong celebration and fundraiser,on Saturday, Sept. 12 from noon to 8 pm.

The event starts with a volunteer trash clean up canoe trip down the Brandywine River and continues at Victory’s Parkesburg brewery at 3127 Lower Valley Road where the Victory for the Headwaters fundraiser will be held, and the real party starts.  All proceeds will benefit Victory’s Headwater Grant, which provides funds to environmental organizations dedicated to protecting our water.

To further the festivities, Victory will unveil the new packaging for its Headwaters Ale. The new look will support the idea behind the delicious brew, which is to pay homage to the Brandywine Watershed, the local source from which every Victory beer ‘springs.’  A portion of every Headwaters Ale sold will be donated to the Headwaters Grant. As one of the four basic ingredients in beer, water is fundamental not only in the production and flavor profile of all brews but most importantly in the health of our planet. Headwaters Ale was introduced five years ago, as Victory approaches 20 years in the craft beer industry, the brewery’s commitment to environmental stewardship is at an all time high.

“Just as a river forms from tiny droplets from the heavens, we see our engagement of a conscientious audience in the Headwaters Grant creating a larger impact,” explains Bill Covaleski, Brewmaster and President of Victory Brewing Company. “Craft beer fans are presented with innumerable choices of beers to purchase. Our goals is to help our fans make the connection that choosing Headwaters Ale, is more than just a taste preference, it is a decision to help preserve our planet one sip at a time.”
