Larkspur, CA– Marin Brewing Company announces the release and limited distribution of Preservation Ale, a session beer created specifically for the 40th Anniversary of Marin County Parks. Preservation Ale is mellow; an easy drinking beer, not too hoppy, not too crazy. Marin Brewing Company owner Brendan Moylan has always been a huge supporter of Marin’s local parks and preserves. “The outdoor scene in Marin makes the county the great place it is. Marin County Parks are our backyard and it’s important to give our support to those who work to protect our beautiful community! During these tough economic times, Marin County Parks needs our support more than ever.”
So it was only natural for the brewery to lend a hand, (and a limited-edition beer) in order to properly celebrate the 40th Anniversary and raise awareness of our open spaces and local preserves in the county. The official release date and kickoff party for a “Summer of Celebration” commemorating 40 Years of Marin County Parks is on Thursday, April 19th at 5pm, at Marin Brewing Company, 1809 Larkspur Landing Circle, Larkspur, CA. All proceeds from the sale of shirts will be donated directly to Marin County Parks. “It’s wonderful have a Marin institution support our ongoing efforts to provide low and no-cost outdoor opportunities to Marin residents and visitors,” says Linda Dahl, Director and General Manager of Marin County Parks, “we appreciate the support of Marin Brewing Company during these tough economic times.”
Marin County Parks is dedicated to educating, inspiring and engaging the people of Marin in the shared commitment of preserving, protecting, and enriching the natural beauty of Marin’s parks and open spaces. Local visionaries in the 1960s and 70s started a heroic movement to preserve critical natural lands and family farms in Marin. Their efforts resulted in creation of two National Park Service units, the Marin Agricultural Land Trust, and voter approval of the Marin County Regional Park District (now Marin County Parks). In the past four decades, Marin County Parks has acquired hundreds of undeveloped parcels from willing sellers, totaling more than 20,000 acres. Much of this acreage became open space preserves—now 34 in total. The preserves are complemented by four regional parks with a variety of outdoor recreational opportunities- from boat access to ball fields and a swimming pool.
