The 7 Bridges Brewing Company will hold the biggest craft beer festival in Da Nang, Beer United 3, on August 24.

Beer United was first organized in July 2018, by 7 Bridges and some home brewers, while 17 craft beer breweries from around the country will join this third event.

Beer United grew out of the 7 Bridges Brewing Co.’s mission to “Make a real social and environmental impact and contribute to the local community”. The beer festival brings many types of people together to try new beers and support the community and environment.

“We believe beer brings people together and builds community feeling. Beer United is a great platform to bring together all kinds of people from the community to support each other and give back to our community,” said Mr. Stanley Boots, 7 Bridges’ CEO.

Beer United partners with three organizations - DAVA (Danang Association of Victims of Agent Orange and Dioxin), Giving it Back to Kids, and Vietnam Zero Waste Alliance Let’s Do It Vietnam - who are the key focus of the festival.

7 Bridge Brewing Co. is supporting DAVA to make and sell their beautiful accessories from materials brought from Japan at the beer festival. “They produce attractive and unique pieces that tourists will want to buy for their inherent aesthetic value,” said Mr. Boots. “All profits go directly to DAVA. This small fundraising yields a great profit to the children beyond money - it also gives them ownership and dignity.”

Giving it Back to Kids is an NGO dedicated to helping orphanages, abused women, and single parents to “achieve their maximum potential”, through medical care, education, and financial support and love. The 7 Bridges Brewing Co. and its partner breweries donate ticket proceeds from the beer festival to Giving it Back to Kids.

For Vietnam Zero Waste Alliance Let’s Do It Vietnam, the 7 Bridges Brewing Co. works on selling reusable and environmentally-favorable goods, to raise awareness of the dire ocean plastics problem facing us and future generations.

In addition to donations from the event to the three NGOs, each of these organizations has its own booth with information on their activities.

“This is the most important part of the event,” Mr. Boots said. “People in different circumstances and social categories come together and are united through the power of beer. Beer is uniting the people and bridging different cultures.”

The 7 Bridges Brewing Company is a Da Nang’s original craft beer company and the region’s first Impact Brewing Company.
