For the 11th year, we are excited to support nature in Delaware by working with our partner, The Nature Conservancy, DE Chapter, and this year we are especially pumped to help them in their efforts to improve water quality and  promote water conservation programs. Yep, the theme of the Dash this year will focus on water.  Each of us is made up of water, the planet is mostly water, and water is an uber important and major ingredient in beer, so it makes sense to do our part to use it responsibly, keep it clean, and ensure there is plenty of it for the future.
