Shedshaker Brewing’s Keg for Good is back today and tomorrow, with Connecting Country being this month’s recipient.
Since 2010, Connecting Country has worked with 450 landholders to restore over 14,000 hectares of land to support wildlife, including revegetation, fencing of remnant vegetation and weed control.
Connecting Country director Lori Arthur said they had installed over 450 nestboxes across the region, which were providing critical habitat for threatened species, such as the brush-tailed phascogale, and iconic species such as the sugar glider.
“This work is only possible with funding from grants and philanthropic donations,” Lori said.
“These donations are critical for our organisation, enabling ongoing monitoring and management of nestboxes, purchase of materials such as trees and tree guards and supporting the running of community engagement events, such as community plantings and educational field days.”
Shedshaker Brewing director Jacqueline Brodie-Hanns said the Keg for Good initiative saw the Taproom put on a keg of Pale Ale and the money raised from those sales go to the nominated charity.
“For two nights, October 24 and October 25, all proceeds of sales of our popular Pale Ale will go to support the great work Connecting Country does,” Jacqueline said.
