Why are we hosting a beer festival? 




This event is a primary fundraising opportunity for RE Sources for Sustainable Communities. Yes, We CAN! will also help breweries make the case for their good environmental decision to use 100% recyclable, lightweight aluminum.

For 30 years RE Sources has stood ready to take action on issues that threaten our community or that advance its sustainability. We monitor and protect the Salish Sea, the shore and its uplands. We promote and create ease of use for people to reduce, reuse, and recycle. We educate all ages to understand the problems and solutions necessary to protect our ecosystem and create a sustainable community. We lead and encourage civic engagement on our core issues throughout our service area.  Read more
