Ferment & Foment Benefit


Come drink delicious home-brewed beer, hang out with labor and climate justice folks, and help raise money for the:

Movement Generation Justice & Ecology Project 

Beer fans & makers of justice & revolution!

All change needs a little fomenting!  

Fomenting pairs well with fermented beverages, so let's get together in the spirit of encouraging the labor & climate justice movements to embrace and foster a just transition. 

Come to MacArthur Garage’s fundraiser for Movement Generation Justice & Ecology Project. 100% of donations will go to fund the work of longtime labor organizer, climate justice/community activist & current Movement Generation fellow, Brooke Anderson, and her work building a grassroots labor movement for climate justice.

"Ferment & Foment: A Benefit for MG's Labor & Climate Justice Project" will be on Saturday, December 14th from 4-10PM at Kevin Christensen's MacArthur Brewery and Garage. 

MacArthur Garage is local home-brewer, future local maltster, long-time union campaigner, & climate justice activist, Kevin Christensen’s speakeasy garage bar where he’s been sharing ferments with locals for years to help build community & foment change.
