MEMPHIS, Tennessee May 7, 2018 For the third consecutive year, Ducks Unlimited is a proud partner and beneficiary of SweetWater Brewing Companys Save Our Water program an annual advocacy, awareness and fundraising campaign that includes a $100,000 donation from the brewery divided equally among five partner organizations, including DU.

This year, a portion of sales from SweetWaters Protect Natural Habitats variety pack is included in the campaign. Available on retail shelves May through August, this special 12-pack of bottles or cans includes fan favorite brands 420 Extra Pale Ale, Goin Coastal IPA with pineapple, TripleTail Tropical IPA and the new summer seasonal brew, Tropical Lover Berliner Weisse.

Atlanta, Georgia, based SweetWater Brewing Company founded their Save Our Water program in 2006 with Atlantas Chattahoochee Riverkeeper and has grown to include other partners as the brewerys distribution covers 22 states. In 2016, SweetWater broadened the annual Save Our Water campaign to include five non-profit partners, including Ducks Unlimited, whose missions include conserving and protecting natural habitats as well as clean water initiatives.

Each year, in addition to their $100,000 donation, SweetWater asks fans to join in the effort with their own donations to partner organizations, resulting in a cumulative total of over $1 million for clean water initiatives around the nation.

SweetWaters contributions from this campaign allow Ducks Unlimited to raise unrestricted revenue, which is critical for our mission, said Jim Alexander, DU senior director of corporate relations. Having the flexibility to put this money to work in our highest priority landscapes is important to effectively delivering on-the-ground conservation. Clean water is essential for waterfowl, wetlands and wildlife. Its also essential for brewing high quality beer.
