Have you ever wanted a better excuse than the fact it’s Friday (or Wednesday, or Monday, or Thursday…) to crack open a cool, cool beverage? Same. That’s why I gotta let y’all in on Sparkke Change Beverage Co, they’re doing some hyper cool shit, fam.
Set up by a badass team of young social activists, Sparkke Change have come up with the coolest idea that is set to make the bev industry put its thing down, flip it and reverse it (I’ve already used two hip hop references in this post. I’ll stop. Maybe.)
Each of the bevs in the Sparkke Change range not only have a unique flavour but are also paired with an issue close to their hearts that is printed on the can to create the perf conversation starter at your next gathering. Sparkke Change are also putting their money where your mouth is by donating 10% of direct sales and 4% of channel sales to organisations who support the causes on your can.
If you’re into beer, the Sparkke Change Pilsner Beer is going to tick all of your boxes. It’s light and low in bitterness with hints of citrus and stone fruit for a summery AF vibe that pairs well with just about anything you’re ramming down your gob. Plus, it gives you the opportunity to support the Change the Date campaign, which is fighting to change Australia Day to a date more respectful for our First Nation’s people. Cheers to that!
Cider fan? The Sparkke Change Apple Cider is going to be right up your alley. Using apples from the Adelaide Hills, this vegan and gluten free cider is sweetened with fresh apple j to get a dry to medium sweetness just for you. With the message “consent can’t come after you do” posted on the can, you’ve got a constant reminder about the importance of sexual consent.
My fave in the range is the Sparkke Change Hard Lemonade. Bursting with freshness thanks to SA grown lemons, this gluten free concoction is a little sherbet like in acidity and perfect for non-beer and wine drinkers! Every time you buy one of these, you’re getting behind the “nipples are nipples” message to support gender equality.
Sparkke Change have two other bevvies in their range that are not vegan friendly at this time; Ginger Beer (supporting asylum seekers) which contains honey and their new White Wine Bubbles (supporting marriage equality) which will hopefully be vegan in the near future.
Bringing a whole new meaning to drink responsibly, Sparkke Change are changing the world one drink at a time!
