Dual Citizen Brewing Company is a community-focused brewhouse that is doing its part to cultivate community by hosting and partnering with community members to keep all of us engaged to make meaningful impacts. One of these impactful changes is our third year leading a partnership through our Dual Purpose outreach with Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity to build a home for a family in need.

We believe everyone deserves a safe, affordable place to call home. Unfortunately, the reality is many of our neighbors and citizens in our communities cannot afford necessities such as food or clothing. Minnesota has some of the widest and worst racial disparities in the United States. Especially home-ownership and housing due to long-standing covenants and city provisions that mutated to redlining and racial gerrymandering built solely to keep people who are not white from buying or even occupying land. It will take all of us to change this.

Our friends over at Maltwerks and Mighty Axe Hops have donated ingredients to partnering breweries – Dual Citizen Brewing, Broken Clock Brewing Cooperative, Clutch Brewing Co., and Under Pressure Brewing. All four breweries will brew the same local ingredients, and after covering labor costs, have committed to donate the proceeds to the House That Beer Built.

We are asking breweries and the public to participate in the House that Beer Built in whatever way works for them. While raising money to build this house is as important as ever, we understand that things look very different for all of us this year. Here are ways you can get involved.

  1. Donate whatever you can afford online. Here is a link of participating breweries and individuals: click here.
  2. Help support by purchasing the BOGOs and the 3 Pack Crowlers some breweries are donating towards the HTBB.
  3. Volunteer for a build-out day. All you need is a group of 6-8 friends to volunteer for a full day on a construction site (9am to 3pm). Learn more: click here.


We can all shape what is possible, ‘Together we can raise walls, one pint at a time!’
