Bright beer bub­bles in mar­riage equal­ity cause

Alpine Observer - - People Around Town -

BRIGHT Brew­ery has helped a Bris­bane brewer to craft a fresh beer in aid of the Aus­tralian Mar­riage Equal­ity or­gan­i­sa­tion’s ‘Yes’ cam­paign.

The lo­cal craft brew­ery last week joined The Good Beer Co – Aus­tralia’s only so­cial en­ter­prise brew­ery – to launch ‘Love²’.

Pro­ceeds from sales of the new brew will sup­port AME’s con­tin­u­ing cam­paign in its at­tempt to win ma­jor­ity sup­port for same­sex mar­riage dur­ing the cur­rent na­tional mar­riage law postal sur­vey and, after­wards, sup­port equal­ity for LGBTI com­mu­ni­ties in Aus­tralia.

The Aus­tralian Bu­reau of Sta­tis­tics is en­cour­ag­ing all vot­ers in the coun­try to mail com­pleted sur­vey forms by Oc­to­ber 27 to en­sure that re­sponses are counted in the fed­eral gov­ern­ment’s non­com­pul­sory, non-bind­ing sur­vey.

The re­sults are to be pub­lished on Novem­ber 15.

Bright Brew­ery’s Scott Bran- don said his en­ter­prise was proud to be brew­ing Love² for The Good Beer Co and “adding our sup­port to this im­por­tant cam­paign for equal­ity”.

“Ap­pro­pri­ately, Love ² is a re­fresh­ing pale ale with a lit­tle bit of sweet malts that make this beer very easy to love,” Mr Bran­don said.

“We love brew­ing it, we love drink­ing it and we love shar­ing it with ev­ery­one, no mat­ter what their pref­er­ences. “

The Good Beer Co founder James Gru­geon said he wanted peo­ple to drink re­spon­si­bly and vote re­spon­si­bly.

“We hope that once Aus­tralia votes to sup­port mar­riage equal­ity there’ll be plenty of newly-weds wash­ing down their mar­riage vows with a Love ² beer,” he said.

More than 30 groups, in­clud­ing brew­ers, pubs, bars, venues and craft beer me­dia, sup­ported last week’s launch of the beer.
