The company also participates in PPSC’s Rock ‘N’ Bowl fundraiser and Brews and Bites for the Bounty Farm, an annual event at Lagunitas.

“We want to be a business that is concerned about community,” said founder Debra Dow. “We do show up, that’s important. We want to be known as a good company and a caring supporter of what’s going on here.”
