Donate to Ukrainian Refugees By Drinking This Beer
Donate to Ukrainian Refugees By Drinking This Beer.
That’s the purpose of our latest collaboration with Hi-Wire Brewing, and the simple and effective sentence also happens to be the name of the resulting pale ale that taps at all seven Hi-Wire taprooms beginning in the brewery’s three Asheville locations on Friday, April 29— and then rolling out to the remaining four taprooms in Durham, N.C., Knoxville, Tenn., Wilmington, N.C., and Louisville, Ky.
With Riverbend donating 100 percent of the malt and Hi-Wire brewing the beer, one dollar from every pint sold directly benefits refugees of Ukraine as facilitated by Asheville non-profit Svitla Nadiya – meaning “Bright Hope” in Ukrainian – an organization created specifically to direct funds and clothing to Ukranians who have been displaced by the current war with Russia.
Donate to Svitla Nadiya and learn more here. Read more about this effort on NC Beer Guys and MountainX.
