In 2013, the Schuylkill Action Network partnered with the Saucony Creek Brewing Company to create a beer that benefits the environment.
A portion of the sales for the Stonefly IPA is donated to protecting and restoring the Schuylkill River, a precious source of drinking water for millions.
Why a stonefly?
A stonefly is a small insect that lives in freshwater streams and creeks.
Stoneflies are extremely sensitive to pollution, making their presence an indicator of clean water.
What's the connection between beer and water?
Beer is about 90% water! Microbreweries get the water they use to brew beer from local streams and creeks.
Clean water = Good beer!
