Jekyll Brewing’s Taproom is located near the Big Creek Greenway on Marconi Drive. Bicycle riders have become part of the Taproom’s core identity. Jekyll Brewing wants to acknowledge this community, and started with the addition of a bike rack. Now for National Philanthropy Day, Jekyll Brewing wants to celebrate a partnership with Bike Alpharetta, a non-profit that advocates for a safe and enjoyable cycling environment.

Thursday, Nov. 15th, Jekyll Brewing and Bike Alpharetta are hosting a Bikes for Kids night!

All are invited to ride/walk/run/skip the Greenway and finish off with a cold beer at Jekyll. A $10 donation to the Bikes For Kids campaign includes a free beer, thank you gift, and you might even pedal home on a new bicycle covered in Jekyll swag, courtesy of Bike Alpharetta (a 501c3 non-profit). Bike Alpharetta will also be providing a helmet to the recipient of the bike!

Please come show some love for the community and enjoy a evening out with us.

Our Community made a Difference 

iCan Shine is a national charitable nonprofit organization which conducts over 100, five-day iCan Bike programs in the U.S. iCan Bike teaches approximately 3,000 people with disabilities how to ride a two-wheeled bicycle each year. Since its inception in 2007, approximately 20,000 people with disabilities have learned to ride a bicycle through this wonderful program. Research shows that over 80% of people with Autism and 90% of people with Down syndrome never experience this thrill. Defying these odds is why we exist!

We are very lucky to have the opportunity to host the iCan Bike program in Alpharetta, Ga., hosted by The Alpharetta Department of Public Safety and The Alpharetta Public Safety Foundation.  The iCan Bike program was held at The Cooler Family Skate Center. THANK YOU VOLUNTEERS!
