This weekend, Saturday, September 28, 2019, is the First Annual Brew and Do (Good) Festival hosted by R.E.A.C.H of Macon County at Lazy Hiker Brewing Company. FHF is a proud sponsor of this event… be sure to pick up a koozie!
It’s the mission of R.E.A.C.H to eradicate domestic violence and sexual assault crimes in both Macon and Jackson Counties, through prevention, intervention, and educational services.
Lazy Hiker Brewing Company has a long history of teaming up with organizations that work within our community. The company jumped at the chance to join R.E.A.C.H. to combat violence against women and has brewed a new beer for the event.
Lazy Hiker staff and R.E.A.C.H. board members worked together on the new blonde ale that has notes of blueberries and orange and sports a deep purple hue.
Purple is associated with Domestic Violence Awareness Month and both groups are thrilled that the beer is such a deep purple color.
This new beer will debut at the Brew and Do (Good) Festival and will be on tap for all of October, which is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
R.E.A.C.H. Board Member, Kathryn Wright said, “The local community has blown us away for this event. We are truly grateful for all the support and beyond excited to introduce the festival this Saturday. This event is extra special because it is something the whole family can enjoy. Our hope is that moms, dads, children, grandparents and friends will leave challenged to ‘do good’ in our community.”
All money raised at this event will go towards funding the shelter and outreach programming that R.E.A.C.H provides to both Macon and Franklin Counties.
Join REACH for this fun-filled 1st Annual Brew and Do (Good) event which helps kick off Domestic Violence Awareness Month a few days early. There will be a chili cook off, corn hole tournament, food trucks, and kid zone activities. There will also be live music by Positive Mental Attitude and the Colby Deitz Band.
Brew and Do (Good) will be at Lazy Hiker from 12-6pm on Saturday, September 28, 2019. Bring your family and support this important cause!
