AleSmith Brews Support for Frontline Workers

SAN DIEGO – AleSmith Brewing Company, along with their newly-created nonprofit, Anvil of Hope, have teamed up to create AleSmith for Hope Hazy IPA. This exciting release demonstrates the local brewery’s tangible commitment to the community as they “pour it forward” to help frontline workers during the current COVID -19 crisis.

“While many breweries are doing their best to manage during this global pandemic, we believe it is our duty to give back to members of the community who are ‘giving it their all’ during these trying times,” says Peter Zien, owner of AleSmith. “It makes perfect sense for us to do what we do best, and through that, be able to lend a hand to others across the county.”

AleSmith Brewing Company collaborated with Anvil of Hope to donate proceeds of their newly created beer to members of the San Diego community who have been impacted in many different ways by COVID-19. Proceeds from AleSmith for Hope Hazy IPA will go to organizations which support the mission of Anvil of Hope and will be specifically earmarked to help frontline workers and their families.

Crafted with the American spirit, AleSmith for Hope Hazy IPA is packed with intense aromas of pineapple, citrus, and tropical fruits. It’s light body and smooth finish make this a brew that’s perfect for every occasion.

AleSmith invites organizations to team with them in promoting this exceptional beer, to help serve those in need throughout the U.S. AleSmith teamed up with Blindtiger Design on the development of the Anvil of Hope; Blindtiger recently led AleSmith Brewing Company through a packaging rebrand. AleSmith for Hope Hazy IPA will be available in July, stay tuned for details to come.
