There’s no shortage of greatness that occurs when you combine the inspirational trifecta of ice cream, craft beer and climate advocacy.
In fact, we recently kicked-off our product collaboration and Clean Power Plan advocacy campaign with New Belgium and Protect Our Winters – at the historic Howard Theatre in Washington D.C. – where we celebrated climate change activism and hosted a festive climate rally.
Aptly titled, “‘Protect Our Winters’ Climate Benefit,” the sold-out show featured incredibly high-energy performances by New Orleans-based funk mavens Galactic, followed by Dr. Dog’s vibrant and subtlety-psychedelic indie rock-n-effing-roll.
With the crowd hyped and on their feet after Galactic’s set, the break was our opportunity to invite some of our amazing climate advocacy partners to rally the audience around the positive opportunities for moving the climate movement forward.
HUGE thanks to Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), 350.org’s Jason Kowalski, Greenpeace USA’s Leila Dean, and POW’s Riders Alliance spokesperson Gretchen Bleiler for leading the rally through set break.
All thanks to our fans who purchased tickets to the event, we raised over $24,000 for POW to continue their climate advocacy efforts surrounding the Clean Power Plan.

Getting the party started right!! We kicked-off the night with the unveiling of our newest flavor –a collaboration with New Belgium Brewing Co. aptly titled Salted Caramel Brown-ie Ale. Thanks to Galactic’s drummer Stanton Moore, for laying down that funky New Orleans drummmmmrooollllll.
In between performances by Galactic and Dr. Dog, we invited a handful of climate leaders to keep the crowd rallied around climate action. Including Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) [seen here], 350.org’s Jason Kowalski, Greenpeace USA’s Leila Dean, and POW’s Riders Alliance spokesperson Gretchen Bleiler alongside professional athletes Brody Leven, Caroline Gleich, Elena Hight, Julian Carr and Kelly Clark.
The sold-out show featured incredibly high-energy performances by New Orleans-based funk mavens Galactic led by singer Erica Fells [seen here], followed by Dr. Dog’s vibrant and subtlety-psychedelic indie rock-n-roll.
