The 10 establishments in Charleston’s peninsula brewery district are getting together once a month to clean up trash in the neighborhood. The first “Craft Brews and Clean Up Crews,” took place on Saturday, when a group of volunteers met at Tradesman Brewing Company “to remove 69 bags worth of debris from the roadways (and) around 1,380 pounds worth of litter,” a spokesperson said. 

“In September of 2020, we began meeting as a collective again. We decided to focus on how we can create opportunities for our community to join together socially distanced to service our neighborhoods,” Palmetto Brewing Company marketing manager Tarah Gee said in a press release.

After partnering with “Keep Charleston Beautiful,” the group decided on a community cleanup that would invite volunteers to meet at a different brewery each month. 

The next “Craft Brews and Clean Up Crews” will take place at Fatty’s Beer Works on Saturday, March 6 at 12 p.m. The cleanup will take place for one hour and gear will be provided.
