All of our proceeds go to benefit local charities! No one with Beers For Good is paid - everyone is a volunteer, and all profits go to charity. We have sponsored several events in the past, including the following, in chronological order - most recent first:
Members of BFG helped the city with their annual winterfest at Coggshall Park, serving three scrumptious beers and hot mulled wine.
Yet another successful brewers festival at Riverfront Park in Fitchburg. Repeat musical artists Zack Slick, Angry Johnny and New Pond Fondle, along with the Spy Tones surf rock band. All proceeds went to benefit Fitchburg Civic Days this year.The 2016 Winterfest at Coggshall Park
Not much in the way of winter weather, except for being very cold on the porch. And Governor Charlie Baker showed up to say hello!
Beers For Good members volunteered to help the Friends of the Fitchburg Senior Center at their first annual Oktoburgfest, with a tent on Grove Street, a German-themed band, and tasty Wachusett Beers!
Another successful brewers festival at Riverfront Park in Fitchburg. Zack Slick, Elemental, Half Sour, and Sun Parade played live, and proceeds benefitted Growing Places Garden Project, LUK, and Fitchburg Civic Days.Second Annual Winterfest at Coggshall Park - January 31, 2015
Beers For Good helped the city with their Winterfest at Coggshall Park on a very, very cold and windy afternoon and evening. But we came prepared with layers of clothing and excellent beers!
The sixth festival featured nice weather, even more brewers and cider-makers, and kick-ass music featuring The Save-Ends, Shepherdess, The Bynars and Zack Slick. We gave money to the Gardner Visiting Nurses for a Fitchburg food pantry, the Fitchburg Public Library for a homework center, and a Fitchburg High School Reading Program.
The fifth festival featured sunny and warm weather, a record number of brewers and cider-makers, and a music lineup that featured surf guitar music for the first time. This year we raised money for a permanent stage for Riverfront Park and for Fitchburg Civic Days. At this writing (November, 2013), an architect has been hired and schematic design has begun on a permanent performance platform for Riverfront Park. Thank you for helping to make this happen!
Our third Brewers Festival was the first event in the newly renovated Riverfront Park, with direct access to the Nashua River. Proceeds went to buy books and other media for the Fitchburg Public Library, to Fitchburg Civic Days, and to the Riverfront Park Foundation. Over 1,300 people had a great time at our largest event to date!
Our second Brewers Festival featured two tents and fantastic music. All proceeds went to benefit The Fitchburg Public Library and Fitchburg Civic Days.
Beers For Good assisted with this benefit for the Fitchburg Senior Center, which featured tasty fresh draft beers and the Beatles tribute band Beatles For Sale. The link for this event displays the historic poster created by Fuzzburg Industries, our own Jordan Murphy
We had grand plans for our second event of the year, but an ice storm ravaged the entire region, knocking out power for weeks, which required the use of the Armory for an emergency shelter for hundreds of displaced residents. But the shelter closed just before the event, and volunteers cleaned the hall so the show could go on. We cancelled our expensive band, cut the price to $5, and Johnny Girouard and Friends donated music for the event. All the profits from Brew Years Eve 2008 (over $1,700) went to purchase books for the Fitchburg Public Library.
Our very first event! All proceeds from the 2008 Nashua River Brewers Festival were donated to Fitchburg Civic Days. This event began the tradition of Beers For Good partnering with the City of Fitchburg and Fitchburg Civic Days (Fitchburg's 4th of July festivities), a tradition that continues to this day!
