Karl Strauss Raises $13k to Protect Beaches

This year, the Karl Strauss Brewing Company’s 7th Annual Beach to Brewery raised $13,000 for the local chapter of  The Surfrider Foundation,  with more than 2,000 guests celebrating the event. Beach to Brewery featured 21 different beers on tap and took place at Karl Strauss’ main brewery in Pacific Beach.

Festivalgoers enjoyed an impressive line-up of 4 local bands while tasting original beers. Karl Strauss brewers led private brewery tours through their recently expanded facility.  The San Diego Bike Club organized over 200 guests who rode their bikes from Pacific Beach to the brewery.

In addition to the donation, Karl Strauss supported Surfrider’s “Rise Above Plastics” campaign and eliminated the use of more than 17,000 plastic cups during the event.  “We understand that Surfrider values our monetary donation, but just as important is the awareness we raise for their cause,” says Matt Rattner, president and co-founder, Karl Strauss Brewing Company.
