Payette Forward program
Here at Payette Brewing, one of our biggest values is our involvement in the local community. We care about the beautiful state of Idaho in which we work, live and play. It is important for us to give back, stay involved and make an impact. We also would not be who and where we are today without the continued support from Idahoans, so we love to do the same and support those that are doing great things for our community! Hence, in 2011 the Payette Forward Program was born and includes the following:
KEGS 4 KAUSE
Kegs 4 Kause is a unique, recurring event created by Payette Brewing as a means to give back to the community on a weekly basis. Every Monday evening, 50% of proceeds from beer sales in the Tap Room are donated to a featured Idaho non-profit. Learn more and apply here. Payette has featured hundreds of organizations in the Tap Room and donated tens of thousands of dollars through Kegs 4 Kause.
PAYETTE FORWARD IPA
Payette Brewing is actively involved in helping our community and we want to support those who do the same! Payette Forward IPA is Payette’s annual philanthropic effort and largest monetary contribution to the community. Payette Forward IPA is brewed in October and released on tap across Idaho in November. A large portion of proceeds from sales of this IPA are donated by Payette and our partners at our Idaho distributorship, Craig Stein Beverage, to a selected Idaho non-profit.
With this being our largest annual donation, the Payette Forward applications are to be filled out by interested organizations and physically mailed to Payette. Applicants are encouraged to include thorough detail and examples of what they do and what this opportunity would mean to them. Payette employees come together to select the non-profit with values we admire and appreciation for the work they do for our community now, and in the future. Below are the non-profits Payette has donated to over the years through Payette Forward IPA.
