Great Beer Needs Clean Water

Award-winning craft brewery, Brewery Ommegang, has teamed up with the Alliance for the Chesapeake during the month of April to raise awareness for clean water and conservation efforts in the headwaters of the Chesapeake Bay watershed.

Nestled in the hills of the Upper Susquehanna River basin, Brewery Ommegang sits on a 140-acre, Belgian-style hop farm that just so happens to be along the major river itself. Ommegang takes great pride in their beer and realizes it’s essential to take care of this precious resource.

All throughout April 2022, every time you purchase a 4-pack of Neon Rainbows, Brewery Ommegang will donate a portion of the proceeds to the Alliance.

We also collaborated with Brewery Ommegang to fill a cooler with merch! One lucky winner will walk away with over $400 worth of gear to fuel their next outdoor adventure. Enter to win below:

You Can’t Have Rainbows Without Rain

The Alliance is thrilled to team up with Brewery Ommegang and work together to restore the Chesapeake Bay watershed and its tributaries. “Coming together” is a central theme of the Alliance’s work, and in fact, it is also one of the meanings of the term “Ommegang.”

By purchasing a 4-pack of Neon Rainbows, you’re supporting the Alliance’s mission to bring together communities, companies, and conservationists to restore the lands and waters of the Chesapeake Bay watershed.

Neon Rainbows is a New England-Style IPA available year-round and is enchanting, vibrant, evanescent. This full-spectrum beer is Brewery Ommegang’s unicorn. Alluringly hazy and irresistibly juicy, it’s unfiltered, double dry-hopped, and gone too soon.

Beyond Good Beer

One of the best ways to restore rivers and streams is to plant trees along them. Known as riparian forest buffers, streamside forests trap and filter nutrients and sediment, cool down water temperatures, provide crucial food and habitat for critters in and around the water, stabilize the streambanks to reduce erosion, and so much more.
