Bringing Together Like-Minded Individuals, One Pint At A Time
Despite being a relatively new profession, the field of corporate responsibility has evolved into various sub-disciplines. This can make it difficult to meet and network with peers outside of large sustainability conferences and gatherings. CBSR is pleased to present Pints With Purpose, a sustainability themed networking event designed to foster collaboration between individuals working for positive impact.
Tickets to Pints With Purpose include complimentary drinks provided by Great Lakes Brewery, the 2013-2014 Canadian Brewery of the Year. Pints With Purpose is pleased to feature Great Lakes Brewery’s Project X and Tank Ten Series beers which tend to sell out quickly at the LCBO.
Sponsored by Ramp Communications, Pints with Purpose is made possible by our partners at Great Lakes Brewery, Fresh Restaurants, Vert Catering and the Centre for Social Innovation (CSI). Thanks to the support of Bullfrog Power, Pints With Purpose is also bullfrogpowered with 100% renewable electricity. This is just one of the ways in which we are minimizing the event’s environmental footprint.
CBSR greatly appreciates the contribution of the Centre for Social Innovation’s event space at 192 Spadina Ave – Atrium. The Centre for Social Innovation bought the 64,000 square-foot Murray Building with the help of 227 investors via Community Bonds. This brick & beam beauty was built in 1920. Formerly a printing company, with a stint in the garment industry, the Murray Building is now home to a makerspace and dozens of organizations.
CBSR would also like to thank Great Lakes Brewery, a fiercely independent craft brewery in Etobicoke, ON for their contribution to Pints With Purpose. Great Lakes Brewery specializes in producing flavourful beers that will be sure to awaken your taste buds with each sip. From unique seasonal ales and premium lagers to their Project X and Tank Ten Series beers, Pints With Purpose features a variety of products that can be enjoyed by everyone.
Originally founded in 1987, Great Lakes Brewery was purchased by Peter Bulut Sr. in 1991 and moved to its current location at 30 Queen Elizabeth Boulevard, a building that originally served as a factory for Faberge Perfumes Limited. The building was designed by Canadian firm John B. Parkin and Associates and won a Massey Medal for architecture when it was built in 1950.
