Minneapolis, MN — Healthy forests support a broad suite of benefits, including their ability to provide clean water. To ensure support of responsible forest management, it is critical that there be public education on how healthy forests are managed, how that management impacts water quality and water resources, and what that management means to end users and consumers of our water.
In response, Forest to Tap was developed by a diverse group of stakeholders to address the need for additional education on the importance of the forest industry and forest management systems. A novel approach was developed: to highlight a local industry that has high water demands, both in quality and quantity. As in many other states, the Minnesota craft beer industry is rapidly expanding and creating a community of consumers who value choice and quality. The assembled partners believed sharing the story of forests’ role in clean water, through these breweries, would effectively reach a targeted audience.
As we emerge from the pandemic, Forest to Tap wants to celebrate Arbor Day with our brewery partners through our Buy One - Get One Tree event on Friday, April 30, from 4-7 pm. With the purchase of your first pint, you will earn a free white pine seedling that you can take home. Below is the list of participating breweries. We hope you will join us for this giveaway event and celebrate the forest's role in great Minnesota beer!
