WESTMINSTER – Wachusett Brewing Company and Atlas Distributing yesterday, April 14, released a new beer together that will directly raise money to support three COVID-19 response funds in the communities where they operate.
The funds are the United Way of Tri-County COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund, United Way of North Central Massachusetts Stand United Fund, and the ‘Worcester Together’ Fund.
Glory American IPA is an approachable and modern expression of the IPA style that is double dry-hopped with Galaxy, Citra and Azacca hops. It will be released in 6-packs this week.
“During these difficult days, we are humbled to partner with Wachusett Brewing and United Way to offer some assistance to our local communities,” said Jamie Salois, of Atlas Distributing. “We are so
grateful to both Wachusett and United Way for their continued work in the community we serve every day.”
“We are incredibly proud to be partnering with Atlas Distributing and United Way” said Christian McMahan, President of Wachusett Brewing Company. “We work in these communities, our employees and their families live in these communities, and we want to do everything we can to help support these communities when they need it the most. These are crazy times, if we can find a way to do some good through of all of this, that’s exactly what we will do.”
“At a time when organizations and businesses are hunkering down doing their best to make it through this pandemic, Wachusett Brewery and Atlas Distributors have chosen to engage the community through the original community building organization – The United Way,” said Paul Mina, President & CEO at the United Way of Tri-County that serves communities in Middlesex, Worcester and Norfolk Counties. “All of us at the United Way of Tri-County are grateful for their kindness and generosity during this time of extreme need.”
