Detroit Breweries ‘Pay What You Can’ Raises Thousands Of Dollars
There's no denying that this year has been difficult for all of us. Bars and restaurants have been at the forefront of the struggle. But, that's not stopping them from trying to give back. Tons of Michigan breweries have been trying their best to stay afloat this year by getting creative and giving back to their community.
Batch Brewery Company in Detroit put together a pay what you can outdoor dining hall for other restaurants to hold pop ups and they're donating all the proceeds to essential workers. They've teamed up with Feelgood Tap and are giving $50,000 to workers in and around the Detroit area. Here's Batch Brewery's reason for starting Feelgood tap,
"This charitable endeavor encourages bars and restaurants to name a monthly rotating tap, raise the price of that beer by $1, and then donate that money to Feelgood Tap. The organization then distributes the contributions to local charities doing good work."
Batch Brewing has held a few of these events in their "Fauci Fieldhouse" location, which is in the parking lot near the brewery. The event encourages those who are in need, to come out and enjoy a hot meal. If you're interested in going and making a donation, they will be serving smoked brisket this Saturday December 12th from noon - 9:00 p.m.
If you're unable to make it out to Detroit this weekend, you can still make a donation at feelgoodtap.org. Owner of Batch Brewing, Steve Roginson says,
“This is a Band-Aid. This is not significant. But it’s something. We’re just trying to do something.”
