Birds of Prey Tap Series at Saugatuck Brewing Company Raises Funds for the Outdoor Discovery Center

The Saugatuck Brewing Company (SBC) and The Outdoor Discovery Center of Holland partnered together for the second summer in a row for another successful fundraiser. This year, SBC featured 5 different beers on tap throughout the summer (June – August) revolving around Birds of Prey; such as “Bald Eagle Brown” and “Peregrine Porter”. For every pint of a featured beer purchased, SBC donated $1.00 (plus $5.00 for every growler fill) directly to the Outdoor Discovery Center. The Tap Series raised a total of $1,659.00, which will go toward many projects at the Outdoor Discovery Center, including care for the Birds of Prey and furthering education programs toward conservation.

“We are so thankful for our partnership with the Saugatuck Brewing Company,” says Anna Daab, Visitor Services Coordinator of the Outdoor Discovery Center. “We appreciate their care and passion for the natural world.”
