A new craft beer establishment, SouthEnd Brewing Company, is trying to do more than just put frothy cold craft beers into the hands of local imbibers. Starting on Monday, Feb. 17, SouthEnd is kicking off a new program called “Community Night,” which is meant to bring awareness to local charities as well as provide them with some extra funding.

SouthEnd opened its doors at 117-B W. Lewis St. in downtown Greensboro in November of last year. It did so with what the business called “a mission to bring the best craft beer to Greensboro.” Another stated goal of the brewery was “to bring a true sense of community to the place, where locals could gather for a great beer and conversation.”

In a Feb. 17 press release, SouthEnd announced its first “Community Night.” That’s something that owners say presents yet another, higher, mission – promoting the awareness of truly worthy local causes.

The first charity being featured is the “Out of the Garden Project,” which helps provide food to needy school kids and their families and also works to battle food insecurity in other ways in order to produce better outcomes all around for those kids.

At 6 p.m. on February 17, owners from both SouthEnd and the Out of the Garden Project will be on hand for a conversation about the work of the charity and the nature of the brewery’s Community Nights.

In addition to helping bring awareness to the charity on this first Community Night, SouthEnd will also donate $1 from every pint sold to the charity.

It will do the same for other charities it spotlights in the future on Community Nights.

Since opening late last year, SouthEnd has expanded its offerings by adding new beers and by serving food for lunch and dinner. It has also begun presenting local music acts. According to SouthEnd’s owners, the new Community Nights give the public “another reason to share a SouthEnd homemade brew with a friend.”
