Earth Day

Sunday, April 22nd @ 10 AM


We take a lot of pride in our sustainability initiatives, especially the ones that allow us the opportunity to partner with urban farms, community gardens & groups that are inspiring sustainable growth within their local communities.


We believe that creating productive green spaces within urban environments is one of the most impactful ways to further positive change. This includes cleaning up abandoned and vacant lots, rebuilding healthy soil, harvesting rainwater, supporting wildlife and local pollinators, planting trees or gardens, and growing healthy, organic, and accessible produce for local communities. These efforts often create jobs and stimulate the local economy.


This Earth Day (4/22) we will be partnering some like minded breweries & raising funds for Youth Farm, doing just that. For Earth Day, HopCat Minneapolis is teaming up with different sponsors to raise money for healthy, productive green space through Youth Farm. This nonprofit provides year-round programs for youth ages 9-24 to educate and train through gardens and greenhouses. They feed families through community dinners & neighborhood events and create stronger, more engaged citizens and happier neighbors.
