Local brewer to mark the occasion with two special beer releases, live music, free brewery tours, special tappings and a new program to give back to the community.

Milwaukee, WI, September 11, 2019—Award-winning Milwaukee craft brewer, Third Space Brewing, hosts its third anniversary party Saturday September 14 from 12:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. The event will be highlighted by two special beer releases and the launch of Third Space Brewing’s new Give 20 charitable giving program.

Anniversary Beer Releases

In honor of three years in business, Third Space will release a Triple IPA, Billy Mumphrey’s Downfall. In true Third Space style, this beer will be super hoppy, tropical and citrusy with a dry finish. Billy Mumphrey’s Downfall will be on tap for the party and available in 4-packs of 16-ounce cans.  After the party, a small quantity of this Triple IPA will hit select retail locations throughout Southern Wisconsin.

This year, Third Space will add a limited release barrel-aged beer to its anniversary party release, Warrior Poet. Warrior Poet is a brandy-barrel aged double version of the brewery’s gold and silver Great American Beer Festival medal-winning Unite the Clans Scottish Ale. There will only be two-hundred 500-ml bottles of Warrior Poet available. Third Space is running a pre-sale that includes a bottle of Warrior Poet and a 4-pack of Billy Mumphrey’s Downfall for $30. A ticket link for the pre-sale is available in the 3rd Anniversary Party Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/925211514492855/

 Give 20 Charitable Giving Program

Third Space will launch a new charity program at the 3rd Anniversary Party. The Give 20 Program will involve Third Space partnering with a new organization each month for a Give 20 Night, where the brewery will donate 20% of beer sales from the evening to the partner charity. Third Space will limit its giving to two types of charitable organizations to create a greater impact on causes most important to the company’s employees. Those causes are Youth Development and Homelessness.

Charities that work in these two areas that are interested in partnering with Third Space on their Give 20 program should send an inquiry via the brewery’s donation portal at www.thirdspacebrewing.com/donations.

Third Space has chosen the Milwaukee County Housing Division’s Housing First Initiative as its first Give 20 partner for October and will kick start the giving program by donating 20% of proceeds at the Anniversary Party from draft sales of the 3rd Anniversary Triple IPA, Billy Mumphrey’s Downfall, to Housing First.

“We are very thankful to the community for embracing our dream to open a craft brewery in our hometown and would like to do our part to give back,” said Third Space Brewing Co-Founder and Brewmaster, Kevin Wright.

Third Space Co-Founder and Director of Sales & Marketing, Andy Gehl further explained: “we have chosen Youth Development because of Kevin and my history meeting and working together at YMCA Camp Minikani where we dedicated a portion of our own young lives to working with children.” Gehl added: “we have also chosen to support Homelessness Outreach in part because Homelessness is a growing issue in our own community, the Menomonee River Valley, but also because we want to help all people find their “third space” and it is difficult to have a third space if you don’t have a first space, your home.”

Other Party Highlights

Third Space will offer three free brewery tours at 2:30, 3:30, and 4:30 during the Anniversary Party. Each tour is limited to thirty people. Interested customers can sign up at the bar starting at 12:00 noon.
