Brewery Vivant: Good neighbors in the East Hills community

Brewery Vivant: Good neighbors in the East Hills community

"> {/cf_blog_cat}

Good neighbors make...good neighbors. And no one understands that better than Brewery Vivant, a recent B Corp and integral part of the East Hills community.

For Vivant, becoming a B Corp was a natural extension of what they do as a business: making great local & seasonal food/beer and gathering people together over them both. This commitment to community is carried out every day in the pub – and also through their charitable giving, both in dollars and time (they have a big goal 200 employee volunteer hours/year and have already hit 150 hours!)

“Being a B Corp gives us more to think about as a company and inspires us to reach and stretch. From offering employees affordable healthcare, retirement planning, and profit sharing, to volunteering in the community, working towards operating at zero waste, and donating 10% of profits to charitable causes, we want Brewery Vivant to serve as a beacon not only in the beer industry, but also elevating the business community as a whole” - Kris Spaulding, owner of Brewery Vivant.

You can try Brewery Vivant beer and food at their pub located on Cherry Street, and you can sample their fare at Fork Fest this Thursday.
