About Civic Rent Lager

Civic Rent is a crisp, mildly sweet, light lager-style beer that combines Barnstable Brewing’s passion and brewing expertise with Shepley’s charitable giving philosophy. “We view ‘civic rent’ as our social obligation to pay back to our community.” The majority of the proceeds will benefit the Housing Assistance Corporation’s Workforce Housing Relief Fund, providing emergency assistance to Cape and Island residents financially impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.

Enjoy Civic Rent and pay it forward with every pint. Tastes great, feels even better!

Limited edition, Civic Rent Lager is available on and off Cape at select retail locations as well as at Barnstable Brewing, located at 485 West Main Street in Hyannis. Click here to order online for easy curbside pick up at Barnstable Brewing.

Beer for a Good Cause

Shepley and Barnstable Brewing are teaming up to raise funds for Cape Codders who have been impacted by the COVID-19 crisis with “Civic Rent”, a beer that goes beyond great brewing. Our goal is simple – bring our community together and pay it forward to our neighbors with every pint. 

Cheers to Civic Rent!

This has been a year of extremes, from the tragedy and suspense of COVID-19 and its effects on the world to the shortages and accompanying price increases that started with toilet paper but also hit the lumber market, real estate, autos, boats, and left most of us gasping. What to do? Get cracking and get creative.

Partnership Raises Money for Workforce Housing Assistance

For some years, Barnstable Brewing has supported Shepley Wood Products’ annual Shepley Wide Open, a charitable golf tournament, which last year raised over $50,000 for local nonprofits. The COVID-19 pandemic this year canceled most events, including this fundraiser, which would have been its 25th year, but the owners of both Hyannis-based companies were determined to help out those in need in some way.
