The Utah Brewers Co-Operative has chosen the SOUTHWEST WILDLIFE FOUNDATION as their Charity for their April Fundraiser!



Salt Lake City – (April 1, 2015) – For the sixth year in a row, during the entire month of April, Squatters and Wasatch Pubs will be offering “Guilt-Free Desserts” for guests who dine in any of their five locations.

“Guilt-Free Dessert” is an annual sales contest where all five pubs team up in a friendly rivalry to raise money for worthwhile causes. Every time during April that guests order a “Guilt-Free” dessert at a special price of $5, 100% of the proceeds are donated to charity. This year’s featured dessert will be a Clafouti, which is a cross between a custard and bread pudding, made with rhubarb and strawberries and topped with whipped cream.

In a new twist, this year each restaurant was given the opportunity to select the charity or non-profit they wished to support. Even the employees at The Beer Store on 1763 S 300 West are getting in on the action and will be soliciting donations when customers come in to purchase their favorite Squatters and Wasatch beers.

“To motivate our employees even more, Salt Lake Brewing Co. will match the donation from the restaurant that raises the most money for their charity”, said Chief Operating Officer Doug Hofeling. “The name of the winning store will also be immortalized on a traveling company trophy.”

“Last year’s promotion raised over $13,000,” says Hofeling, “and the restaurants are gearing up to raise even more money in 2015. With the help of Nicholas & Company, who has generously agreed to donate all of the ingredients to make the desserts, our goal is to raise $18,000 in 2015.”

The chosen recipients for 2015 and their sponsoring pubs are as follows:

  • Breathe Utah (org) Breathe Utah is dedicated to improving the air we breathe through education, collaboration and policy. (Sponsored by Squatters Pub Brewery)
