Every year in honor of Sexual Assault Awareness month, members of the Asheville Brewers Alliance partner with Our VOICE, Asheville and Buncombe County’s rape crisis and prevention center, for the month of April. This effort supports people in our community who have been impacted by sexual violence while also working to prevent that violence from happening in the first place. Participating breweries will donate $1 from every pint of a beer of their choosing for the entire month of April, and their donation will go directly towards supporting survivors in our community.
As part of this collaboration, all participating breweries are also invited to receive a free Bar Outreach Training session with an Our VOICE educator focusing on drug-facilitated sexual assault prevention and intervention. This powerful partnership strives to create a resilient community that is free of sexual violence, where bar staff, brewers, managers and owners become allies in alcohol and drug-facilitated sexual assault prevention.
Bhramari Brewing Company has offered to host a Bar Outreach Training at their brewery on April 16! It is open to community partners to attend; if a brewery or bar trains 70% or more of their staff members, they will receive a Bar Outreach Certification.
If you or your company is interested in being a part of this training, you can RSVP to this event and reach out to Bhramari Brewing to confirm your attendance. Thank you for your interest and support!
