Earlier this year, Mountain Khakis® and Catawba Brewing® joined forces to create the limited release Soulshine Kölsch™, just in time for summer BBQs and parties. The co-branded Soulshine Kölsch marked a special collaboration between the brands as both are known for celebrating outdoor adventure and are committed to protecting lands and waterways. In-line with their conservation stewardship, the two brands pledged to donate a portion of the Soulshine sales to the Catawba Lands Conservancy (CLC). All summer, people loved the light crisp Soulshine Kölsch and $6,803.60 was raised and donated to the Catawba Lands Conservancy.
“We were thrilled to present the Catawba Lands Conservancy with their check recently. Our friends at CLC can protect one acre of land for every $500 raised, so Soulshine Kölsch was directly responsible for protecting almost 14 acres of land from development,” said Mary Mayo, Creative Director of Catawba Brewing.
The limited release Soulshine Kölsch has sold out for the year, but it had a good run from June through September in four Catawba Brewing tasting rooms with a 5-state distribution (draft and 6-pack cans). Soulshine sold particularly well in the Asheville, North Carolina area, where it was perfectly suited for outdoor summer fun in the mountains. Stay tuned for future collaborations between Mountain Khakis and Catawba Brewing Company.
