This month we’re proud to support the work that Sanguen does for our community!

The organisation was founded directly in response to a community need identified by Dr. Chris Steingart, an infectious disease physician who was working at Grand River Hospital. He saw how much medical treatment and support was needed for individuals living with Hepatitis C in Waterloo Region and Guelph-Wellington. As a response to this need, Sanguen was established You may see their van around town, reaching and working with people where they are. 

Over the years, Sanguen has continued to expand its impact through education, outreach, support, and comprehensive, expert medical care for those who need it most. We’re excited to spread the word about Sanguen this month and support them - and we hope you join us!

You can participate in our campaign this month by contributing to our donation jar at the till - and you can always support Sanguen by donating to them directly!

Live Sustainably 

We’re excited to support Reep Green Solutions this month! Not only are they an active and long-running environmental charity that has been working with people across the Region to help them live more sustainably, but they are also our neighbour!


Some of you may have visited the Reep House at some point, either to pick up your Bloom{in} Box of seedlings or to see their energy-conserving methods in practice. It’s located just up Mill

Street from us, so we knew it was only a matter of time before we worked together!

Participants in Reep’s programs have “reduced 27,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions through their home renovations” between 1999 and 2019. During those twenty years, over 14,000 people from around Waterloo Region participated in their workshops, learning about renewable energy, sustainable living, and rainwater management.


Help us celebrate the Earth this month by leaving a donation for Reep next time you come by the brewery to pick up some beer - or reach out to them directly to participate in one of their programs to green your life!
