WHAT: Iron Monkey Tap Project 3,6,5 Launch
WHEN: Thursday, May 3 at 6:00 p.m
WHERE: The Iron Monkey, 99 Greene St., Jersey City, NJ
We’re partnering up with Iron Monkey to launch Tap Project 3, 6, 5 on May 3rd to help promote Mayor Jerramiah T. Healy’s Project 365 Jersey City Green Week.
Kicking off on Thursday with a Meet the Brewer event with Dale Katechis, Tap Project 3,6,5 will help promote the Jersey City biking community. From Thursday (5/3) – Saturday (5/5), $2 from every Oskar Blues draft purchased from tap numbers 3, 6 and 5 will be donated to help purchase new bike racks for area businesses. The Oskar Blues drafts that will be part of the Tap Project 3, 6, 5 are Dale’s Pale Ale, Deviant Dale’s IPA and Mama’s Little Yella Pils.
Dale, and Oskar Blues as a brand, are ardent supporters of environmental causes and advocates for green and sustainable living, being the country’s first craft brewer to package and sell our brews in cans, which are nearly 50 percent lighter to ship than bottles, and reduce our carbon footprint significantly.
In addition to that, we’re major bike enthusiasts (check out REEB Cycles!).
“We live and breathe bikes and beer 365 and are stoked the Iron Monkey chose an Oskar Blues “Meet the Brewer” night to promote the Jersey City biking community,” Katechis says. “We support a boatload of cycling events, ranging from our local Bicycle Longmont G’Knight Cruiser Ride that hosts a few thousand riders to the backcountry of the Breckenridge and Leadville 100 mountain bike races…and hell, we dig ‘em all.”
With Oskar Blues’ support, The Iron Monkey is pledging to purchase at least one bike rack for a local business, and hope to raise enough funds to purchase more.
In addition, the Iron Monkey is also partnering with Grove Street Bicycles. As a three-year sponsor of Bike JC’s city-wide Ward Tour, the Iron Monkey is a supporter of city bicycling. In order to encourage bike usage, we’re donating a $10 restaurant gift card for every bike purchased between May 3 and May 5.
“It’s Green Week in Jersey City, and Oskar Blues is one of the greenest companies that we work with,” says Stephen McIntyre, owner of The Iron Monkey. “It felt like a natural partnership, and will give us the chance to do something good, while drinking really great beers.
