Park Circle brewery Commonhouse Aleworks will debut its newest beer on Friday at event celebrating its third anniversary, with proceeds going to Park Circle Cares’ efforts to combat food insecurity in the Lowcountry. The Inclusion Amber Ale is the first beer in Commonhouse’s unCOMMONly GOOD Beer Series, which will benefit “community impact organizations across Commonhouse’s market footprint,” a press release said.

“Celebrating what we all share in common, and making a positive impact in the communities we serve is what drives our team,” said Commonhouse proprietor Pearce Fleming in the release. “We have enjoyed collaborating with community impact organizations in the past and believe our unCOMMONly GOOD Beer Series will allow us to do more for and with these organizations in the future.”

Commonhouse will release a new beer with merchandise each quarter in 2021, with proceeds from each release going to a different nonprofit. The first beneficiary, Park Circle Cares, purchases food from the Lowcountry Food Bank and other organizations before distributing to communities in need.

“We are so grateful for this community’s continued support of our mission: to provide access to healthy and nutritious food to those who struggle with food insecurity,” Park Circle Cares president Orly Janssen said in the release. “This year has been an even further eye opener for us, as we have watched many in our community’s already small safety net dwindle during the pandemic. We are thrilled to work with Commonhouse Aleworks again.”

The Inclusion Amber Ale will be available at Commonhouse Aleworks starting Friday, Jan. 8. For more information on the unCOMMONly GOOD Beer series, visit
