Here is a link to my interview with the founder of Jubilee Beer and the CEO of the Oasis center, as heard on Lightning 100.


Jubilee Beer, is good beer for a good cause!
What if you could do good for your community by drinking beer with your friends? Sounds crazy doesn’t it? But that’s exactly what Jubilee Nut Brown Ale will allow Nashville craft beer drinkers to do.
The Jubilee Craft Beer Company, LLC is bringing a fun, quirky and slightly ridiculous beer brand to Middle Tennessee. Founded on the core ideals of bringing people together and making a positive impact on the community in which you live, Jubilee will donate 50% of its profits to the Oasis Center, a local charity that does amazing work with the youth of Nashville.
Here are a few of the reasons why Jubilee supports Oasis:
1. Not Your Grandma’s Charity- The old model of charity doesn’t work. Everyone knows it, but few organizations are doing something about it. Oasis is. The folks at Oasis are some of the most creative and innovative people you’ll meet. They approach their jobs like entrepreneurs; developing innovative solutions to solve the problems facing Nashville’s youth.
2. On the Cutting Edge- The Oasis Center is nationally known for being one of the most innovative charities in the country. In fact, it was the first organization in the country to be recognized as a “Promise Place” by Colin Powell’s America’s Promise Alliance.
3. A Sense of Belonging- The Oasis Center provides at-risk teens with every opportunity they need to make positive changes in their lives (from a drop-in center for homeless teens to college counseling). The most important of those is a positive, adult role model who believes in them. For some of those kids, it will be the first time they’ve ever been able to say “somebody cares about me”. And that’s when the change begins.
4. Don’t Just Beat the Odds; Change the Odds- What makes Oasis special is that they don’t just help at-risk teens overcome their problems; they get the teens involved in the community. Those same kids who walk through the door end up working together to tackle the issues that led them to Oasis in the first place. So while Oasis helped them beat the odds, they are helping change the odds for others. It’s the way a charity should work.
The Oasis Center really is an amazing place. But don’t just take my word for it. Check out their website or better yet, schedule a tour at the Oasis office. That way you can see for yourself if the snozberries taste like snozberries.
