Yesterday Tradesman Brewing Co. announced a new nonprofit happy hour series, one that will take place weekly at the brewery — Thankful Thursday. Each week the brewery hosts a different Charleston-area charity; the charity will have a space for promotion and will be able to raise money through beer sales. For every pint sold on Thankful Thursdays, Tradesman will donate $1 to the chosen charity.

The brewery wants to take happy hour and add a positive spin (if the drinking part wasn’t enough for ya.) In a press release Tradesman co-owner Chris Winn says, “We have worked with so many groups over the years via special events, it made sense for us to bring some of that support in-house.”

Thankful Thursdays are almost entirely booked through December, but it’s not too early to start thinking about next year. Email chris@tradesmanbrewing.com if you’re interested in participating.

Participating charities for the rest of this year include: Sea Island Habitat for Humanity, American Heart Association — Lowcountry Chapter, Lowcountry Food Bank, Lowcountry Orphan Relief, Lowcountry Marine Mammal Network, and Birds of Prey. And that’s just through October.

Follow along on Tradesman’s Facebook for updates on participating charities, visiting food trucks, and new beer releases.
