Hundreds of breweries are making the exact same beer to help hospitality staff
All Together beer is being brewed in 29 countries across the world
Breweries like having collabs. A couple of beermakers team up to make something delicious. But this might be the collab for the ages...
A brewery in Brooklyn called Other Half Brewing Co made a beer called All Together IPA—and then made the recipe available online. As of publication, the beer has been taken up by a staggering 410 breweries in 29 countries around the world. Each one is using the same recipe, or with small adaptations, and selling it to raise money for staff in the hospitality industry.
"Everyone is affected, whether you're a hostess, server, or hotel worker," Other Half co-founder Andrew Burman told Thrillist. "We wanted to do something that was local and supported the people that were there [in the community]. We didn't want to say that you were giving to a national charity. If a small brewer needed this to keep the lights on or pay an employee for a couple of weeks longer, that's what it's for. If a homebrewer wanted to brew it just to shoot the shit with his friends and make life easier for a couple of days, that's great."
And it truly is a collaborative project through and through. As well as downloading the recipe from the site, beermakers can also grab the label artwork, which was contributed by Stout Collective. Blue Label Packaging Company is offering discount for printing the labels.
On the site, Other Half Brewing Co writes: “All Together is a worldwide, open-ended beer collaboration created to raise support for the industry we love so much. It's an effort to raise awareness and provide relief, even in the smallest way, to those who are struggling. We ask that a portion of the proceeds go to supporting hospitality professionals in your community. The rest should go to keeping you in business to weather this storm.”
If you're a beer drinker, here's how you can support the breweries.
