MODUS Operandi are proud to be taking part in this year’s Brewgooder Global Gathering on Friday 20th March. Building on the success of previous initiatives in the UK. The goal this year is to bring 100,000 people access to clean water through the power of beer.
We were honoured to get the call to join 350 breweries, 18 from Australia for the Global Gathering and have put our best foot forward, keeping with the theme of clean water; We have brewed a classic clean beer, our Brewgooder Helles Lager a 5.2% thirst quencher.
Brewer, Kieran was excited to brew this style of beer particularly for the Brewgooder event, and show that Modus can produce a delicious Helles Lager in contrast to our usual hop forward beers. It will be brewed for around 7 weeks and kegged just in time for the event. He used Magnum hops from Germany which give an authentic lager give it’s a real noble character.
To launch the beer we have reached out to other Aussie breweries involved in the Global Gathering, to have a massive tap takeover. This will be the biggest brewgooder tap takeover in Australia showcasing 12 speciality brewgooder beers right here at Modus Operandi.
Furthermore to raise funds for our Brewgooder Just Giving page we have initiated a raffle at Modus with merch from the participating breweries. We hope this solidarity will make strides to help the Brewgooder Projects in Malawi. Money raised will be spent on well construction, well rehabilitation and water mapping for long term sustainability of well construction and repairs. If this summer has taught us anything here in Oz, it’s the appreciation of water.
An astounding 880,000,000 people globally lack basic access to clean water and far too many children don’t see their 5th birthday due to premature death from preventable water related illnesses. That is the stat that blew us away, as here at Modus there are a lot of young familes and that really struck a nerve. If brewing a lager and getting our brewing community together could make a difference it’s something we had to jump in on. Providing clean water is the first step on a path to a better life for millions of people and a catalyst for wider development. Kids grow up healthier, stay in school longer, with less sickness and disease.
So come to Modus HQ and try our Helles Lager or some of the other 12 speciality Brewgooder beers on our tap takeover on March 20. Or head to one of our partner venues and where you will also find our Helles Lager on March 20.
