On Thursday, September 14, Tenacity Brewing of Flint will be pulling pints for hunger relief.
From open to close (3-10 p.m.), they’ll donate $1 from every pour of Sit Down Session IPA to the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan. A pint for you means good food for a neighbor in need.
Tenacity opened in early 2015 as Flint’s sole brewery, a distinction they hold to this day. Located in an old firehouse, the brewery is noted for its comfortable, welcoming atmosphere. They have a variety of beers and ciders on tap.
The brewery’s fundraiser for the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan is keeping with their community-centric ethos. The brewery was partially funded by supporters on Kickstarter and they’ve raised money for the Flint Child Health and Development Fund throughout the city’s Water Crisis.
Grand River Brewery is smashing hunger this September. All month long they’ll be donating $1 to the Food Bank of South Central Michigan for every pint of Hungry Hoppo IPA sold in the taproom.
Hungry Hoppo is a session IPA specially brewed for the Hops Against Hunger campaign. It’s a single-malt, single-hop (SMaSH) beer, a technically challenging approach that requires precision and control on the part of the brewer. Done well, SMaSH beers are a great showcase for the malts and hops they use.
In addition, Hungry Hoppo was created using only Michigan ingredients. It’s truly a beer by and for the people of Michigan.
Based in Battle Creek, the Food Bank of South Central Michigan is one of seven Feeding America-member food banks serving people in the state. Proceeds from the Grand River Brewery’s fundraiser will support food distribution to local agencies serving those in need in the region.
