It is the third time Brewgooder received the recognition – and this year it has received its highest score yet. The brands it has been listed alongside include Riverford and Becoming X – an education initiative for children set up by Bear Grylls. 

The award recognises the work that Brewgooder – whose business funds community projects undertaken by the Brewgooder Foundation – has done at home and abroad in empowering people through its beer sales and ethical campaigns. 

Brewgooder is on track to contribute £100,000 to high-impact projects this year. The funds will be shared among several key areas, including clean water and sanitation, food provision, reducing inequalities, and climate action.

Meanwhile, the company’s IPA collaboration with online food channel Twisted is on course to provide more than 75,000 fresh food items to local communities by the end of the year, as part of a commitment to ensure families across the UK have access to affordable, fresh food.

The Brewgooder Foundation has supported the delivery of more than 150 million litres of clean water to communities since it launched in 2016. The purpose-driven beer brand is set to contribute more than 80 million in 2022 alone, with each Brewgooder beer sold helping to generate approximately 100 times its volume in clean water projects. 

Alan Mahon, founder of Brewgooder, said: “We are extremely humbled to be recognised by B-Corp for our commitment to community-based sustainability projects for the third year in a row. To be listed among some of the most inspiring brands and companies from across the planet is an honour and something which we are incredibly proud of. 

“Without a shadow of a doubt this has been our most impactful year ever, and so, to receive this accolade now means more than ever. We are driven by our passion and purpose to help people around the world and are looking forward to continuing to strengthen our work on a global scale.”

During this year’s certification, Brewgooder has been awarded the high score of 104, (an improvement of eight points on last year) following improvements in areas such as governance, worker engagement and environment.

The organisation recently set out plans for an annual brewing and distilling scholarship, as part of its commitment to tackle inequalities within the drinks industry. 

The scheme, which will be run in collaboration with Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh, will be specifically aimed at ethnic minority students in an effort to improve diversity within the sector. 

Details of the programme are set to be announced later this year, with the first intake of students expected to be enrolled this autumn. 

Brewgooder is committed to ensuring every single beer brewed will help to empower the lives of others. To learn more about their work, visit
