Simcoe for SARA


Simcoe for SARA started in 2018 in partnership with local breweries to raise awareness about sexual violence while celebrating local beer.


Each year, breweries create their signature Simcoe for SARA using Simcoe hops to benefit the lifesaving services and prevention education programs at the Sexual Assault Resource Agency.

Creating a community free from sexual violence is only possible with community support and involvement.


Each year, Simcoe for SARA gets local press coverage and offers brand awareness opportunities for breweries.


Breweries can also take advantage of free training from SARA's Prevention Team about creating safe, empathetic environments for staff and patrons.


We are grateful for our partners in the Simcoe for SARA 2024 Season.
