7 Bridges Brewing Company, 493 Tran Hung Dao, Phuong An Hai Tay, Quan Son Tra, has organized the biggest craft beer festival in Danang called Beer United 3 on 24th August at Verona Café & Restaurant, 36 Hoang Ke Viem. 7 Bridges Brewing Company started in April 2017 as Danang’s first craft beer brewery.
Beer United - Cultural and culinary exchanges, enhancing community awareness
Beer United was first organized in July 2018 with 7 Bridges and some home brewers. Now is the third time that the event is organized. In this event, 17 craft beer breweries will join from all over Vietnam. Each time, the number of participating breweries has increased, all looking to support good causes.
Beer United grew out of 7 Bridges Brewing Co.’s mission to “Make a real social and environmental IMPACT and contribute to the local community”. This beer festival brings so many kinds of people together to try new beers while knowing they are supporting our 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.” Says Mr. Stanley Boots, 7 Bridges’ CEO, Mr. Stanley Boots. He continues “Now Danang becomes a very popular tourist destination where more than 5 million people visit every year. The city is beautiful and attracting many foreigners to live. However, we cannot forget that there are so many people who are living in underprivileged circumstances and the city is also facing a solids and plastic waste issue, as are other parts of Vietnam. So, as a responsible Danang company, our mission focuses on key local issues such as the underprivileged, ocean plastics and the protection of wildlife.”
Mr. Stanley Boots - CEO 7 Bridges had a speech in the event in 2018
Beer United partners with 3 organizations such as 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 beautiful, saleable accessories from materials were brought from Japan. DAVA can sell their lovely handiwork at the beer festival. “They produce very attractive and unique pieces that tourists would want to buy for their inherent aesthetic value.” says 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”
The beautiful, saleable handiwork was at the event
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. 7 Bridges Brewing Co. and the partner breweries donates the ticket sales cash generated by the beer festival to Giving it Back to Kids.
For Vietnam Zero Waste Alliance Let's Do It Vietnam, 7 Bridges Brewing Co. works on selling reusable and environmentally favorable goods, as awareness of the dire ocean plastics problem facing us and future generations.
In addition to the donation from the profit of the event to the 3 NGOs, each of these organizations has its own booth with the information that introduces their own activities. The beer festival visitors can directly access to the people from the organizations and share knowledge and community awareness.
Mr. Boots says “This is the most important part of this event. The people in the different circumstances and social categories come together and are united through the power of beer. Beer is uniting the people. Bridging different cultures and circumstances amongst the people.”
Having already had two successful events in the past year, more and more breweries are willing to join the event. Those breweries agree to the purpose of Beer United and happily do their part to contribute to the community. “People come to the festival to enjoy good beer, but at the same time, they can learn what is actually going on in Danang.
