Earth Day at HopCat Lincoln @ HopCat
Apr 22 @ 11:00 am – 2:00 pm

As part of their continuing efforts to be environmentally conscious, HopCat is teaming up with a local organization that is working to add carbon-sequestering green space to our urban environments for Earth Day and this year they will be working with Big Red Worms. This division of the Nebraska Farmers Union uses traditional hot composting, and then feeds this material to worms to create a nutrient-dense soil.

They will be donating a portion of pint sales from the following beers to Big Red Worms and will match this donation up to $300.
Green Flash – American Imperial IPA
Lagunitas – Waldo’s Special Ale
New Belgium – Hop Kitchen: Botanical Imperial
Sierra Nevada – Hop Hunter

Big Red Worms will be on hand with information on what they do in our community.

Hope to see you there!
