Newport Craft Launches All Together Fundraising Beer

By August 22, 2020Rhode Island, Top News

Newport Craft Brewing & Distilling Co.’s All Together beer will benefit the RI Hospitality Employee Relief Fund.

Newport Craft Brewing & Distilling Co. released its version of the fundraising brew, All Together, a West Coast IPA, on July 8. Sold from the brewery, the worldwide collaboration is brewed locally to support hospitality professionals as a result of the pandemic’s economic impacts. With Newport a hospitality-driven town, Newport Craft Brewing & Distilling Co. said it is thrilled to be helping the hospitality industry. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the RI Hospitality Employee Relief Fund. The relief fund is for RI Hospitality Association member restaurant, hotel and tourism employees who have been laid off and are facing financial hardship due to COVID-19. The 6.5% ABV drink was created by brewers at Other Half Brewing in Brooklyn, New York, as an open-source collaboration beer, in which any brewer can participate and make their own version, with proceeds going to support hospitality workers in dire straits during the pandemic.
