Clarity watermelon production expands

Eel River Brewing Co. announced this week it has expanded the production of Clartiy hard seltzer in the watermelon flavor.

“Clarity Watermelon has a bright fruity aroma and a fresh sweetness making it the perfect low-calorie option to sip on while preparing for summer,” the company said in a news release.

Clarity hard seltzer is low-carb, zero sugar and naturally gluten-free.

“We are excited to be bringing back our most popular Clarity to date. It was our first seasonal to launch in summer 2020 and ever since then we have been asked every week when it will be back,” owner Marissa Elias said in a prepared statement. “It is the perfect kick-off to the nicer weather and instantly transports you to river days and back yard BBQs.”

Clarity watermelon is at 5% ABV. This flavor is available now on draft, in 12-ounce can six-packs, and single 19.2-ounce cans.

Proposals sought for wellbeing projects

Nonprofits and community groups can receive up to $15,000 for projects and programs supporting wellbeing in Humboldt County. The Humboldt Health Foundation, an affiliate of Humboldt Area Foundation/Wild Rivers Community Foundation, put out a request for proposals for its 2022 Community Health Grant program, which provides local nonprofits and groups with funding for work that improves residents’ and communities’ mental or physical wellbeing in Humboldt County.

The deadline to apply is Aug. 1.

“The Community Health Grants are designed to support charitable organizations and projects that have a positive impact on the physical and mental health of vulnerable, underserved and/or marginalized community members,” Craig Woods, director of grantmaking for the Humboldt Area Foundation, said in a prepared statement.

Humboldt Health Foundation prioritizes funding for organizations and groups that support the health and wellbeing of Black, Indigenous, and people of color, recognizing that BIPOC have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic and that racism is a critical public health issue impacting our region.

“We’re pleased to offer this opportunity to support racial equity and healthy community engagement. We look forward to learning about and supporting the many creative and innovative community-led projects that local groups are working on towards developing healthier communities,” Christina Huff, program chair of the 2022 Community Health Grants, said in the release.
