The Crooked Can Brewing Company, in Winter Garden, is partnering with the Oakland Nature Preserve to assist in its mission of educating the public and restoring the Lake Apopka basin.

The brewery is donating $1 of every specialty "Oakland Nature Preserve Beer" back to the Preserve. The brew, an amber lager, is made with blackberry, vanilla and cinnamon.

Crooked Can is located in the Plant Street Market in downtown Winter Garden. Its brewing process is monitored under an award-winning brew master to ensure the vision is reached using traditional brewing methods and cutting-edge practices.

ONP is a 128-acre preserve offering environmental education and ecotourism activities for visitors of all ages. For details, visit
