Goodwill Bot: Trips By Transit
Get in from the cold for an epic collaboration of beer, games, and adventure. TBT works to make nature and community accessible, affordable, and possible for everyone..and thanks to Good Robot Brewing Company we're doing this with beer!
$1 from each pint sold all day will be going to Trips By Transit's quest to connect Haligonians with nature, adventure, and community.
Come hangout with the TBT Crew from 5-8PM. There will be transit-challenges and games, good conversation, and people to answer your adventure or transit-related questions!
More about Trips By Transit: TBT runs free or pay-what-you-can adventures using the public transit system to help connect individuals with nature, their community, and their inner selves. We believe nature is important to a healthy, connected life, and that everyone deserves this.
We work to educate on local environmental issues, building awareness within the community.
We serve anyone interested, but specifically work for individuals who regularly experience barriers to getting outside (financial-, knowledge-, or social-barriers).
Donations go to programming (hikes and adventures) and insuring these can stay free of cost for anyone in-need.

GRBCo. Tiny Pub Concert Kim Harris, Dance Movie & Lucas Reeves
Warm up your cold winter heart with an incredible night of music in one of Halifax's weirdest and tiniest venues for a show.
Featuring: Kim Harris, Dance Movie, and Lucas Reeves
Feb 28th 8:30pm-10:30pm Doors at 8
Tickets are $10 and available at:
Dance Movie is a rock band from Halifax. Its second album, Pierce, was produced by John Goodmanson (Sleater-Kinney, Cloud Nothings, Death Cab for Cutie) and came out in the spring of 2017.
Deemed by CBC Music as "the mightiest voice coming out of the East Coast," Kim Harris' performance will bestow upon you the fortitude to dismantle life as you know it into the stardust it began as, and to befriend the darkest, most magnificent inner lions to walk with through this world for the rest of your days. Her go to emotion is crying, her favourite meal is raspberries, her favourite dinosaur is the brontosaurus, and she will love you til you call the cops on her.
FemmeBot Home Brew Competition
LADIES! Good Robot is doing an all female/femme identified home-brew competition for women's day. Talk to any FemmeBot at the bar or track down Kelly Costello if you want more info! LET'S ALL MAKE DELICIOUS BEER 🍻
Here's the nitty gritty:
Brew any pre-prohibition style beer. Original recipes only, no kits, malt extract is okay.
Women and femme-identified, non-professional brewers.
Register by Feb 1st and turn in 4x341mL bottles by March 1st.
Turn in submissions to Good Robot, "Beer Later" area by March 1st. Winners announced at Good Robot's FemmeBot celebration on March 7th.

I'll be notified and will send a confirmation email with a registration number and recipe form to be included with the submissions.
Because women make beer too! And we have for millennia! And some of us sure as hell drink beer. And because the prize includes a spot on the Betabrew schedule and some GoRo swag! Maybe more things, I'm working on that.
