At Hop Nation, implementing sustainable practices isn’t just a nice add on or corporate catch phrase, it’s a necessary part of our ongoing business model. It’s no secret that the brewing industry can be incredibly wasteful, so we’re making every effort we can to minimise our environmental impact and give back.

This May under the banner of Heart of the West / Heart of the Community, we are teaming up with our trade partners to raise funds for local environmental group Friends Of The Maribyrnong Valley.

During this time, 10% of sales of The Heart Pale Ale will be donated to Friends of Maribyrnong Valley to improve the environment for all Melburnians.

Friends of the Maribyrnong Valley Inc. was formed in 1986 to preserve, protect and enhance the Maribyrnong River and its Valley Parklands. The group strongly believes that, as custodians, we must all work together to safeguard this irreplaceable community asset for future generations to enjoy.
