community engagement.

We are committed to supporting our community.

From our local neighborhood, to the cultural and social communities of our staff and customers, we mobilize our time, energy, funds, and platform in pursuit of a more equitable city. We’re committed to social justice in all its forms, and are so proud to work with partner organizations who are building a Boston that works for everyone. We believe that effective change requires communal work, and we empower our team members to serve and support partner organizations alongside company-wide and product-based initiatives.

Are you a non-profit or grassroots organization looking to partner? We’d love to start the conversation. We offer monthlong partnerships, monetary donations, gift baskets, event partnerships, beer donations, and more. Fill out this form and we’ll be in touch!

Our monthly partnership.

May is ALS awareness month, and we’re joining forces with Ales for ALS™—a national, industry-wide fundraising campaign. Created in 2013 by a Washington hop farming family to raise funds and awareness for ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, Ales for ALS donates a custom hop blend from Yakima Chief Hops to breweries who join and commit revenue to the project.

To date, the program has raised over $3.5 million for research into how to treat and cure this deadly disease.  We’re honored to take part in this Herculean effort for the second year in a row alongside our friends at Sam Adams, with whom we’ve crafted two complementary IPAs, both called Beacon of Hops. Ours is a striking Black IPA, and a portion of the proceeds from this collaboration will go towards the fight against ALS.

$1 per sale of Beacon of Hops will be donated to Ales for ALS! Try it on draft at the Lamplighter and Sam Adams taprooms.

Collaborate with us.

Lamplighter collaborations most often involve either one-time donations/events or month-long partnerships. Read on to learn how to participate in one or both of these programs. We’re excited to learn how we can support you!

To inquire about a month-long partnership with Lamplighter, please also email [email protected] to set up an initial phone call. We’re especially excited to partner with organizations fighting for justice for BIPOC, queer/trans folks, women, and immigrants to the US, as well as organizations leading the fight against environmental racism and climate change.
