Toast 2 Love – Fri 3 November

Aussies can Toast 2 Love and support marriage equality with special love brew

*** ORDER A CASE OF Love² HERE ***

Australians are being asked to raise a glass with a Toast 2 Love and share it on social media on Friday 3 November as the same sex marriage postal survey reaches its last few days, with all funds from the sale of Love² beer by The Good Beer Co. being pledged to the Australian Marriage Equality campaign.

Fifteen pubs, bars and venues in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Canberra and Adelaide are supporting #Toast2Love by putting the special Love² brew by The Good Beer Co. and Bright Brewery on tap, and over 100 businesses including Airbnb, Tripadvisor, Medbank, Qantas, and Atlassian are getting involved by serving the Love² beer in bottles at special “Toast 2 Love” Friday drinks events across the country.

A case of The Good Beer Co Love2 beerThe New World style Pale Ale beer has proved so popular since its launch earlier this month that The Good Beer Co. and Bright Brewery are busy brewing a new batch to keep up with orders. But the good news is beer lovers can order a carton of Love² online here and for a celebration at home with mates.

The Good Beer Co. is a social enterprise – a company on a mission to do good – and the Love² beer is its second cause related brew, with the first being Great Barrier Beer in support of the Australian Marine Conservation Society and their work to protect Australia’s national icon, the Great Barrier Reef.

The Good Beer Co. Founder, James Grugeon, said he wanted to “Toast 2 Love” to thank everyone who had already voted YES, urge those who hadn’t returned their survey yet to do it quickly before the deadline on 7 November and remind everyone who has supported marriage equality that the fight isn’t over until the law is passed.

“This is a celebration of love for all those YES voters out there. When you Toast 2 Love on Friday the 3rd November we want you to share it on your social media so everyone can see that you support equality for all,” Mr Grugeon said.

“The Good Beer Co. will continue to support the Australian Marriage Equality campaign after 15 November because that isn’t the end, we will continue to work until same sex marriage marriage is passed into law. And ongoing, we’ll continue to support the cause of equality for everyone.

“I hope to be toasting LGBTIQ friends at their own marriages in Australia before long.”

Janine Middleton from the Equality Campaign said, “Toast to Love will give campaigners and YES voters a chance to pause and reflect before the postal survey result is announced on 15 November.

“We are excited by how popular Love² beer has proved to be and hope it is a good omen for YES. It is a great beer and we hope Australians will enjoy toasting love on 3 November – and well beyond that day.”

Scott Brandon, owner of Bright Brewery, the brewers of Love² beer, said he was delighted about the positive reaction to this special brew.

“This is a hand crafted, small batch brewed beer from an independent craft brewer and social enterprise start up. Beer is a great equaliser in our society that helps bring people together and enjoy each other’s company. We’re proud to be making a beer that supports equality for all Australians and hope that everyone will seek out and try this New World-style session Pale Ale with all Aussie ingredients that’s easy to love, no matter what your preference.”

Anyone supporting marriage equality can also share The Good Beer Co’s #Toast2Love animation…

NOTE: Love² orders – cases of Love² beer (24 x 330ml bottles) are now available to ORDER HERE. To receive a case for #Toast2Love events this Friday, you must order before 8am, Wednesday 31st October 2017. Please be aware that kegs for pubs and bars are now sold out.

Love² – easy to love

Love Squared beer bottleBright Brewery is a community-minded, family owned business that believes in fairness and equality for all Australians. We make beers to be shared, savoured and enjoyed by everyone of legal drinking age. Our beers do not discriminate, and neither do we when it comes to the matter of equal love.

We love good beer, and we believe love is a truly special human experience that should not be limited through its expression in marriage.

That is why Bright Brewery has proudly helped The Good Beer Co craft a new beer to back the YES vote in the current Australian postal survey on marriage equality.

We’re sure you’ll love this beer, no matter what your preference, and encourage you to

Here’s the full story of Love²

 


MEDIA RELEASE:

Love² is brewing:  new beer launched to back YES vote

New Love² craft beer on tap and in bottles across Australia with all profits going to marriage equality campaign

Like beer?  Love marriage equality?  We can drink to that.

A new limited edition beer called Love² is being launched across Australia today, Wednesday 4 October, with all proceeds going to the Australian Marriage Equality campaign.

The Good Beer Co., Australia’s only social enterprise beer company, has joined forces with Victorian craft brewers Bright Brewery and the YES campaign to launch the new session pale ale Love².

Peter Black from the Australian Marriage Equality Campaign  said: “The name says it all – Love squared. We’re stoked that The Good Beer Co and Bright Brewery have got behind a YES vote with this awesome beer!”

James Grugeon, Founder of The Good Beer Co said: “There are lots of ways to show your support for marriage equality.  The most important way of course is to vote YES.  But as we’re a beer company with a social conscience, we reckon the second best way is to have a Love² beer.

“We want people to drink responsibly and we also want them to vote responsibly. We hope that once Australia votes to support marriage equality, there’ll be plenty of newly-weds washing down their marriage vows with a Love² beer.”

More than 30 groups, including brewers, pubs, bars, venues and craft beer media, are also getting behind the launch.

Scott Brandon from Bright Brewery said: “Appropriately, Love² is a refreshing pale ale with a little bit of sweet malts that make this beer very easy to love. We love brewing it, we love drinking it, and we love sharing it with everyone, no matter what their preferences. We’re very proud to be brewing it for The Good Beer Co and adding our support to this important campaign for equality.”

Love² beer is being launched on tap at Collective Kitchen & Bar at Ann St in Brisbane at 5.30pm on Wednesday 4th October and at 18 supporting venues in Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.

The beer is also on sale online for pre orders in 50 litre kegs and cartons of 24x330ml bottles via The Good Beer Co website.

The profits from Love² beer will go to the Australian Marriage Equality Campaign to support its work to bring about a YES vote in the postal survey and, ongoing, support the cause of equality for LGBTI+ communities across Australia.
