Spreads Cheer With Beer

Just Five Stops on the Tri-Valley Beer Trail = $20 to Taylor Family Foundation.

Back by popular demand, the Tri-Valley Beer Trail’s annual charitable campaign, Spread Cheer with Beer, returns November 15 – January 31. Each year, Visit Tri-Valley finds a philanthropic group to support with the efforts of the Tri-Valley Beer Trail by donating $20 for every beer passport that is turned in with five stamps. This year’s recipient is The Taylor Family Foundation, a local nonprofit working to preserve the wellness of children with life-threatening illnesses, developmental disabilities and youth at-risk.

To start spreading cheer with beer, pick up a passport at any stop on the Tri-Valley Beer Trail or download a passport at www.trivalleybeertrail.com and start sipping suds. Get a stamp from your choice of any five participating breweries or taprooms and redeem your passport via email or in person to ensure the $20 donation.

Amateurs and aficionados alike enjoy sampling flights of local craft beer and chatting with passionate brew masters. And with a collection of 22 participating stops in Pleasanton, Livermore, Dublin and Danville, a passport stamp is just a pour away.

“It’s awesome to partner again with all these talented folks who give so generously to us and many others in our community,” said Angie Carmignani, CEO of The Taylor Family Foundation. “I am proud to be a part of this event and feel so fortunate to have such amazing support from everyone on the Tri-Valley Beer Trail.”
