Food for Thought

Meaningful conversations lead to meaningful actions.  We're here to help jump-start both.

Peddler Brewing Company was founded on three pillars: ride bikes, drink beer, give back.  Building community and being a gathering place for all people is central to the role that breweries have in our culture.  Through you, our community members, we hope to channel the power and privilege of using our voices to amplify inequities and spark conversation.  We believe these conversations lead to personal growth, meaningful action, and social change. 

National Popular Vote

National Popular Vote is a movement to get the presidential election based on popular vote, with a goal to achieve this by 2024.  How?  By having states assign their electoral votes to the national population winner, instead of their state's population winner.  Once enough states sign on to the movement to reach 270 electoral votes, it is enacted.  Currently 15 states and DC have signed on, for a total of 196 electoral votes.  88 more electoral votes are needed.

Additional organizations advocating with National Popular Vote:

  • Common Cause (@ourcommoncause) "We can protect our public health and our freedom to vote. Join our campaign and put massive pressure on decision-makers in your state to make sure every eligible American can vote."

  • League of Women Voters (@leagueofwomenvoters) "The League of Women Voters of the United States encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy."

  • FairVote (@fairvotereform) "FairVote is a nonpartisan champion of electoral reforms that give voters greater choice, a stronger voice, and a representative democracy that works for all Americans."

  • Equal Citizens ( "We believe that every single issue we care about — from climate change to gun safety, from health care to military spending — cannot be fixed until we fix democracy first."

Over the past 7 years, it has been our pleasure to utilize tools like the bicycle and pints of local craft beer to help support our community here in Seattle.  We’ve been able to use our resources to give back in many ways: $1 per pint sold fundraisers, the use of our taproom & beer garden to hold space for community events & meetings, cleanups of the Ballard Bridge, donations of cans & kegs to local organizations.  In a time where many small businesses are struggling to stay afloat, we continue to do what we can to build a stronger and more equitable community.
