AirWave Festival at Good People Benefits Three Local Waterkeepers

On Saturday, March 12th, Good People Brewing Company will host the free AirWave festival to benefit Black Warrior Riverkeeper, Cahaba Riverkeeper, and Coosa Riverkeeper. The family-friendly, public event will be held from 1 p.m.m to Midnight, and will feature live bands, talented artists and exhibitors, local food trucks, a lush hospitality suite, and much more.

“AirWave will feature a brewage of Birmingham bands, including Animala, Brother Man, Cahaba, the Burning Peppermints, HotBed, Little Raine Band, DJ SuperPro, Yukon Moon, Dwight Williams of The Locust Fork Band, and more,” said Dan Morriss, AirWave’s organizer.  “Guests can expect a wide array of musical styles suited to anyone who enjoys beer or clean water, along with a huge group of artists, vendors, visual performers, fire dancers, and laser drawings with the goal of keeping local rivers clean.”

The three Waterkeeper Alliance groups recently received generous grants from The Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham to enhance their collaborations protecting the region’s vital but vulnerable water resources.

“Water is an essential ingredient to producing a great beer,” added Lauren McCurdy, Director of Marketing at Good People.  “We rely on educators and advocates like Black Warrior, Cahaba, and Coosa Riverkeeper to help us make our beer the highest quality it can be.  Local waters that these Waterkeepers oversee and protect bring more of that true Alabama essence into our brews.”

A combination of financial revenue gained that day including merchandise sales, optional donations, and 20% of beer sales on the day of the event, will equally support all three of the Greater Birmingham area’s Waterkeeper organizations.
