“Civic Rent” A Beer for a Good Cause

Shepley Wood Products 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. 

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Civic Rent will benefit the Workforce Housing Relief Fund, established by Housing Assistance Corporation (HAC) in response to the COVID-19 crisis. Launched in April, the fund provides emergency assistance with rent or mortgage payments for year-round Cape and Islands residents who have been financially impacted by the pandemic.

“We are grateful to Shepley Wood Products and Barnstable Brewing for partnering on a product that will enable consumers to give back and make an impact at the local level,” said Housing Assistance CEO Alisa Magnotta. “Civic Rent is a statement about the power of community and the important role all of us play in ensuring our neighbors have access to safe, stable housing which is needed now more than ever.”

Shepley Wood Products and Barnstable Brewing are two Cape Cod businesses that understand the importance of giving back to their community. Barnstable Brewing has been a supporter of Shepley’s annual Shepley Wide Open, a charitable golf tournament which last year raised over $50,000 for local charities. When Shepley decided to postpone its 25th Shepley Wide Open until next year, both Barnstable Brewing and Shepley agreed that together they could come up with an innovative way to serve our community and continue the spirit of giving, even during these uncertain times.  Peter Connor, co-founder and President of Barnstable Brewing adds, “We thoughtfully named our Brewery after the community we intentioned to immerse ourselves in. When it was clear that we could not participate in the golf tournament like last year because of Covid-19, we immediately collaborated with Shepley to put together something timely and pertinent to help those who need it in these tough times. There is synergy in the two companies approach to helping the community”.

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. When it comes to the community, “I view ‘civic rent’ as a social obligation that we should pay back to our community, both personally and professionally,” Tony Shepley said.

Civic Rent will be packaged and available soon at Barnstable Brewing located in Hyannis.
