The Homebrew Emporium is proud to announce that the food drive we do in conjunction with the AHA’s National Homebrew Day Big Brew was another great success thanks to our fantastic customers! We had 16 brewers at both our West Boylston and Weymouth location and another 21 at our Rensselaer, NY. We even had 1 person participate at our Cambridge location even though we were unable to provide a group brewing location there. That’s 54 people who each gave $15 and non-perishable goods to their local food banks!
That’s $810 subject to the food bank’s multiplier effect and is good for providing 2,400 meals!
For our part, we gave away over 150 lbs of dry malt extract, 60 lbs of grain, and 80 ounces of hops in support of this great cause. If you believe in businesses supporting causes like this, please support your local Homebrew Emporium.
