We're proud to announce that Discretion Brewing is supporting our Ocean Stewards through their Love Mondays benefit program. In honor of this, we’ve asked them to share their thoughts about their unique connection to OSO and our community. Here’s what they had to say…
We define DISCRETION as wisdom, wit and kindness. These qualities shape our interactions with each other, our ever-growing circle of customers, our community, and our beer. At Discretion, we care deeply for the world we live in and believe our beer should be responsibly-made. That’s why our beer is crafted from 100% organic malts and hops and why we harness the power of the sun to brew our beer. Whether you choose an old favorite or one of many seasonal beers offered throughout the year, you will find goodness in your glass–organic, solar-powered, and delicious.
Once upon a time, and again and again, Rob, Kathleen, Lars, Brianna, and Dustin gathered around the old kitchen table and dreamed of starting a business that would allow them to work together as a family. The business would be guided by the qualities of wisdom, wit, and kindness, rooted in the community that had nurtured them all their lives, and dedicated to producing goodness. After a world-wide search, they found their brewmaster, Michael, who shared their quest for excellence and elegance and also had deep roots in Santa Cruz. They each brought their own gifts to the table, and Discretion Brewing was born.
Elegant. Organic. Solar-powered. Brewed with love. Only organic ingredients are used at Discretion, a choice that's good for the earth and its people as well as the beer. We are the first Santa Cruz brewery to invest in solar power, harnessing the power of the sun to brew our beer. Water is precious, and we treat it that way. We are constantly seeking ways to lessen water usage. We divert 100% of our spent grain to local farms where very lucky pigs feast on the goodness left over after a brew day, sparing the landfill over 225,000 pound of grain a year. Grandsons like to nibble on it, too!
One way to express love is through kindness. Discretion Brewing is committed to being kind to our community. That’s why the word is in our logo, along with wisdom and wit. These are the qualities we hope will define our interactions with each other and with you as we make and share the goodness that is our beer.
On Love Mondays, we recognize and encourage local groups, like O'Neill Sea Odyssey, doing extraordinary things. We donate $1 for every draft beer sold that day to support the work they do in our community, along with the opportunity to educate our community about the good work they do, so we can all celebrate it together. Every one of our customers who buys a glass of beer throughout the day is a participant in the fundraising.
Please join O'Neill Sea Odyssey at Discretion Brewing on Monday, October 9, 2017 (Columbus Day), from 11:30am-9pm, when $1 of every Love Mondays draft beer sale will benefit our 100,000th Student Campaign. Mmmm beer!
Thank you, Discretion! We loved having the opportunity to celebrate our work.
