Our Mid-Atlantic facility Donates 3,000 Trays for Friends Giving, an initiative to support those struggling to provide food for their families
Now on their third year, Double Nickel in conjunction with three other local breweries, Tonewood Brewing Co., Cape May Brewing Co. and Urban Village Brewing Co. have collaborated on a recipe that combines each of their custom brewing styles into one brew called Friends Giving ‘Potluck-Style’ Hazy IPA, raising over $200,000 the past two years! The beer is packaged and sold in 4-pack designer cans which proceeds will go to feed the hungry.
This year the party got even bigger as they expanded their scope to the Washington DC / Northern Virginia areas, adding an additional six breweries to their team. These breweries include Source Farmhouse Brewery (Colts Neck, NJ), as well as four Northern Virginia breweries: Solace Brewing Company (Sterling, VA), Ocelot Brewing Company (Dulles, VA), Old Ox Brewery (Ashburn, VA), and Crooked Run Brewing (Sterling, VA).
With the current pandemic, the decision to expand this initiative was a huge step in the right direction as the issue of food security is now bigger than ever.
