Habitat for Humanity of Laramie County’s 28th summer build season is in full swing, with volunteers constructing two homes alongside future Habitat homeowners on Messenger Court in Cheyenne.
However, pounding nails isn’t the only way the community can support affordable housing this summer, thanks to local breweries Freedom’s Edge Brewing Co., Danielmarks Brewing Company, and Accomplice Beer Company. All three businesses are hosting promotions and events for Habitat this summer.
Freedom’s Edge, along with Thrivent Financial, hosts “Beers for Building.” The first event was June 6th, with future events July 18th, August 1st, and September 5th from 5-7 PM. The community is invited to meet the local Habitat team, learn about this summer’s build, eat free brats, and enjoy a cold beer. Thrivent Financial will match donations made during these events.
On July 30th, Danielmarks invites beer lovers to HOPeration Habitat, where from 5-7 PM a dollar of every sale is donated to Habitat’s summer build project. Thrivent Financial will again match all donations collected at the event.
Also in July, Accomplice repeats its beer as philanthropy model that raised money for Rooted in Cheyenne last summer, with a special edition batch of beer named “Builders Blonde Ale” Brew master, Victor Gabriel describes the beer as “crisp, refreshing summer beer with a hint of lemon.” On July 11th from 5-9 PM, Accomplice hosts “Hops for Homes” to enjoy the new beer, proceeds from which will benefit this summer’s build season.
“We’re so pleased to have the support of our local business community,” said Habitat Director, Kate Wright, “these events will be a great time for the community to learn what Habitat for Humanity strives to do in Cheyenne. Nothing says summer like working hard, doing good things, and enjoying a cold beverage, and we are looking forward to another great build season,” she added.
