San Francisco, CA — Friday, March 6, 2020 — Two renowned American breweries, 21st Amendment Brewery of San Francisco, CA, and Boulevard Brewing Company of Kansas City, MO, have donated funds to two standout local charities following a friendly wager on Super Bowl LIV. With the San Francisco 49ers’ loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, 21st Amendment donated $1,000 to KC-based Veterans Community Project, and Boulevard Brewing donated $500 to San Francisco’s Project Night Night.
Boulevard officially challenged the Bay Area brewery to a Big Game bet on January 24. The losing city’s brewery was obligated to send a couple of cases of beer to the winner and, most importantly, donate $1,000 to a local charity of the winner’s choice. To cap it off, the loser’s Head Brewer needed to wear the winning team’s jersey, snap a picture, and post it to social media. 21st Amendment accepted the bet, and followed through with the beer shipment and wearing of the Chiefs jersey (LINK)!
“Kansas City and the #KingdomWithoutBorders raised many, many beers in honor of our team and their hard-fought victory,” said Natalie Gershon, VP of Marketing at Boulevard. “Celebrating this with our friends at 21st Amendment Brewery and giving back to two impactful organizations is certainly the cherry on top of an amazing season.”
Shaun O’Sullivan, Co-Founder & Brewmaster of 21st Amendment commented, “Bay Area football and craft beer have a longstanding tradition of excellence. What a rush it was to witness the San Francisco 49ers’ fight for the chance to win their sixth Super Bowl. We were not victorious, but had a blast supporting our home team. The 21st Amendment Brewery congratulates Boulevard Brewing on their city’s win of the Super Bowl. We really appreciate their donation of $500 to Project Night Night.”
The two breweries are nationally recognized for their award-winning portfolios of specialty beers, including their lauded wheat beers, Hell or High Watermelon Wheat Beer from 21st Amendment and Boulevard’s Unfiltered Wheat Beer. Boulevard is the largest specialty brewer in the Midwest, and 21st Amendment is rated among the top 50 craft brewers in America. With the incredible support of their beloved communities, and to commemorate the big game, the companies agreed there was no better way to celebrate a victory than a donation to a local charity.
