Big Storm Brewing Co. (Clearwater, Florida) has officially announced that it and several other Pinellas County craft breweries have come together to brew A House that Beer Built, a collaboration Belgian Wit that will raise funds for Habitat for Humanity.
A House That Beer Built is a new program from Big Storm Brewing, Dissent Craft Brewing Company (St. Petersburg, Florida), Flying Boat Brewing Co. (St. Petersburg, Florida) and other local breweries that aims to raise $50,000 for Habitat for Humanity so that it can help a local family in need. The participating breweries hope to raise a portion of the funds with the sale of a collaboration beer created specifically for the cause.
Also named A House That Beer Built, this special collaboration is Belgian-style Witbier “brewed with white wheat and barley malt for a refreshing and flavorful, hazy golden-white ale.” The recipe is rounded out with additions of orange peel, coriander, and grains of paradise to impart “layers of sweet citrus and pleasant spice” and “a traditional Belgian wit yeast completes the perfect beer for a great cause.”
“Habitat is beyond excited to be working with the craft beer community here in Pinellas County,” said Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas County Vice President of Corporate Partnerships and Marketing Alison Riley. “We are always looking for new and innovative ways to partner with businesses and individuals in the area as well as spread the word of the Habitat mission. We are thankful to Big Storm and all of the breweries who have made this project possible!”
“This is a tremendous opportunity to give back to the community and by working together we are crafting both a home and hope for a Pinellas family,” said Big Storm Brewing owner L.J. Govoni.
A House That Beer Built Belgian Wit is available now on draft at Big Storm Brewing Co.’s Pinellas and Pasco taprooms. A portion of the proceeds raised from the sale of A House That Beer Built will be donated to Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas County to build a house for a local family in need. Prost!
