Ten Fifty-Five Brewing Company kicks off their new Leap of Faith program today, designed to raise funds for a local non-profit whose leaps have made a measurable impact in the lives of others.
To kick things off, from February 29 to March 13, 2016, the brewery will donate 10 percent of all beer and merchandise sales from its tap room to Native Seeds/SEARCH, a local organization that conserves, distributes, and documents the adapted and diverse varieties of agricultural seeds, their wild relatives, and the role these seeds play in cultures of the American Southwest and Northwest Mexico.
“We took a big leap when we started the brewery in 2013, so big, in fact, that we named our first beer Leap Pale Ale,” said Chris Squires, co-owner and general manager of Ten Fifty-Five Brewing Company. “It was simply natural for us to commemorate the first leap year since our founding in celebration of that leap spirit, and to support a local non-profit that goes beyond its comfort zone to serve this community. This is our small way to keep the leap alive in Southern Arizona.”
Located at 3810 E. 44th Street, the brewery’s tap room is open on Thursdays and Fridays from 4:00pm-8:00pm, and on Saturdays from 2:00pm-7:00pm. Sales receipts from Leap of Faith will be processed at the conclusion of the two-week period, with a check presented to the charity shortly thereafter.
