Maui Brewing – Kokua For The Cans!
(Lahaina, Maui, HI) – Maui Brewing Co. (MBC) is supporting White Labs’ “Beer for Boobs” team this year in their efforts to raise funds benefiting the Susan G. Komen Foundation and the National Philanthropic Trust Breast Cancer Fund.
In 2008, this team raised over $26,000 and they are hoping to increase that amount this year. On November 22nd, this group of amazing women will participate in the Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk in San Diego and will walk 60 miles over the course of three days.
“We at Maui Brewing Co. are proud to support the ‘Beer for Boobs’ team,” says Garrett Marrero. “Unfortunately, we all know someone in our lives that has been affected by cancer; breast cancer is a terrible disease afflicting mostly women. Great strides have been made in fighting this disease but our hope is that money raised by this campaign will bring us one step closer to obliterating it. We all have a wife, mother, sister or friend so this issue really touches us all. For so many reasons, ‘Boobs’ will always have my full support.”
Please join Maui Brewing Co. in supporting this effort. Maui Brewing Co. eShop is now donating 10% of each “SAVE THE CANS” shirt sold to “Beer for Boobs”. There are many ways to participate; for more information, visit the team webpage at http://www.whitelabs.com/breast_cancer.html.
Maui Brewing Co. is the only brewer and canner of craft beer in Hawaii as 100% of the beers are brewed and canned on Maui. Additionally, MBC microbrews are officially Hawaii’s #1 craft beer. With a strong commitment to the local economy, and deep concern for the environment, MBC microbrews are packaged with the most eco-friendly materials. Although cans and bottles are both recyclable, bottles still break and may pose a risk at beaches. The cans are manufactured on Oahu, designed by local Maui artists and have the added bonus of protecting the beer in the best possible manner – from both light and oxygen damage which can seriously compromise the taste. Plastic rings are dangerous to marine life and therefore, a unique, recyclable plastic carrying device is used to hold the products. The spent grain from beer production is donated to local ranchers for cattle feed and composting; and any cans damaged in production are donated to the Maui Humane Society. MBC also purchased equipment from Maui Land & Pineapple to preserve a piece of Hawaii’s canning history.
