How long has Kulshan been hosting community events?
- Kulshan has been hosting community events since 2013! As soon as we opened our doors, we made it a priority to play an active role in our community, partnering with local business and non-profit organizations, really focusing on outdoor preservation and recreation.
How many events does Kulshan host and/or sponsor a year?
- We host 12 pint nights per year, and participate as sponsor for about 10 recreational teams in Bellingham. With the many non-profits in the area, we do our best to provide as much support throughout the year as possible in the form of beer, swag and volunteered time.
Why is it important for Kulshan to be so active in community?
- Our community is what allows us to survive! Kulshan has grown a significant amount over the past five years, and we attribute that to the loyal support of the Whatcom County community. With schools, sports, groups that preserve nature and love for animals, we feel blessed to have the opportunity to give back to those who have nurtured us.
What are some of the organizations that have benefited from your involvement, and do you know how much money is raised annually for local organizations through your sponsorship?
- A few of the organizations that we work most closely with are Whatcom Mountain Bike Coalition, and Bellingham Youth Paddlesports. These two groups specifically benefit from our Greenwood IPA, which is on tap at both locations. This tropical IPA was named after the late Jon Greenwood, co-founder of Kulshan, amazing father, husband and friend to many. In honor of Jon, a portion of all pint sales of this special brew go directly to WMBC and BYPS.
