Seek the Good Saturday

To Seek the Good is to participate in Milwaukee's resurgence as a city.

One way we do this as a company is by shining a spotlight on and supporting local non profits. Seek the Good Saturday is a monthly Saturday morning service project that our team organizes and invites the public to participate in. Afterwards all volunteers of legal age are invited to the brewery to celebrate good work over a complimentary beer. Participate in making Milwaukee a Good City. Seek the Good with us!


Joe's Run, Walk, and Roll with Broadscope Disability Services

9/21/19

For our September Seek the Good Saturday, we volunteered at Joe's Run, Walk, and Roll, Greater Milwaukee's original fully-accessible 1, 3, and 5K put on by Broadscope Disability Services. We spent our day motivating participants during the marathon, helping some walk or roll along the path, and playing games with friends and families. Post-volunteering, we popped over to Cafe Bavaria to enjoy some Good City Pilsners on the patio. Thanks for welcoming us, Broadscope! We can't wait to help out again next year!

River Revitalization Foundation

8/3/19

We were honored to be back at the RRF for another round of Seek the Good Saturday's, almost exactly 1 year later (we didn't even plan it!). This time around they switched things up on us and taught us how to plant native species. After planting ALL the beautiful plants they had brought out for the day, we enjoyed a nice hike back to RRF with our team leader Vince who talked about the history of the land, how the RRF has gotten involved, and taught us many interesting facts about several plants down by the river.

Post volunteering, we sat around a large conference table and enjoyed a fresh can of Spare Time DDH Hazy IPA while discussing many different topics. We then headed over to Stubby's for another cold Good City brew -- that's right, a double beer Seek the Good Saturday! As always, thank you to all the amazing volunteers who spent their Spare Time helping us Seek the Good. Cheers!

For the month of May we were excited to be invited back to work with the Urban Ecology center for a second time! Our group was hard at work at the Riverside Park location pulling invasive Garlic Mustard.

This volunteer opportunity was great practice for June's Seek the Good Saturday with the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center where volunteers will be competing in the Root Rodeo, a friendly competition where an award is given to the individual who pulls the longest Garlic Mustard root!

Victory Garden Initiative

4/20/19

For the month of April, we had another first time partner for Seek the Good Saturday! We had a great time volunteering with the Victory Garden Initiative at their urban farm in Harambee. The weather was perfect and the group was motivated and ready to work!

We spent two hours prepping raised beds for the Summer AgriCorps Youth and the Community Gardners. We pulled weeds, moved fresh soil, and relocated some large raised beds. It was a great way to get outside, meet new people, and most importantly, Seek the Good!

Milwaukee Rescue Mission

3/9/19

Our first time volunteering with the Milwaukee Rescue Mission was a success! Our group of volunteers cleaned blinds, washed windows, picked up trash in the courtyard and swept stairwells, all to help improve the quality of stay for the Mission's homeless guests.

Did you know that the Milwaukee Rescue Mission opened its doors in 1893, making it the oldest running homeless shelter in the state of Wisconsin? Check out their website to see how their programs have evolved since then!
