With the coronavirus continuing to wreak havoc on the US brewing and hospitality industry, American breweries like AleSmith and Hi-Wire are stepping up bigtime with new beers that hope to provide some relief…
Hi-Wire Brewing Releases Beer that Benefit Service Industry Workers
Asheville, NC based Hi-Wire Brewing is answering the havoc the coronavirus pandemic has been wreaking on the service industry with a beer that will benefit hospitality workers on a state and national level who are out of work or underemployed due to this crisis.
Hi-Wire Donate To Service Industry Workers By Drinking This Beer (that’s right, the name of the beer is a full sentence and an extremely important one at that) is a 5% ABV Session IPA. And a portion of the proceeds from every 6-pack of this IPA sold will be donated to the USBG National Charity Foundation and the North Carolina Restaurant Workers Relief Fund.
Beginning May 14 Hi-Wire’s “Donate To Service Industry Workers By Drinking This Beer” will be available online in 6-packs of 12oz for nationwide shipping, as well as in North Carolina, Kentucky, and Ohio. Hi-Wire Brewing’s Asheville Big Top and Durham, NC taprooms will also have this new IPA available for curbside pickup and local delivery.
AleSmith Brews to Support Frontline Workers
AleSmith Brewing, along with their newly-created nonprofit, Anvil of Hope, have teamed up to create a special beer that was brewed to benefit members of the San Diego community who have been impacted in many different ways by COVID-19.
Crafted with heart and a sense of community, AleSmith for Hope Hazy IPA is a 7.5% ABV, light-bodied India Pale Ale with intense pineapple, citrus, and tropical fruit aromatics and an uber-smooth finish. And proceeds from its sales will go to organizations which support the mission of Anvil of Hope and will be specifically earmarked to help frontline workers and their families.
“While many breweries are doing their best to manage during this global pandemic, we believe it is our duty to give back to members of the community who are ‘giving it their all’ during these trying times,” says Peter Zien, owner of AleSmith. “It makes perfect sense for us to do what we do best, and through that, be able to lend a hand to others across the county.”
