Have you heard about Sip It Forward® at Hoptown Brewing?

"Love for community and a passion to reach out and help their neighbors were both evident at Hoptown Brewing Co. on Plantation Ridge Drive in Mooresville during the celebration of another successful Sip It Forward campaign. It was announced that $18,115 had been raised over the last year to give back to the community.

This program to give back to local charities was initiated in 2021 by Sandy and Scott Plemmons, founders and marketing partners, when the company first opened.

Sip It Forward is Hoptown’s signature annual fundraiser, pairing the Sip It Forward beer with a donation. When customers purchase the Sip It Forward beer, they receive a $1 token and drop it in the slot of the charity they wish to support.

Having worked in a nonprofit segment, Sandy said with emotion in her voice, that she understood the struggles of raising money, and therefore, “hopefully, this little brewery can make a big difference.” - As Seen On Statesville Record & Landmark.
