05 May Crazy Good Brewer Serving Up Crazy Good Kindness
Brookston’s Crasian Brewing Company Aiming to Help A Number of Other Small Nationwide Craft Breweries As Part of “Believe In Beer Relief Fund”
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
May 4, 2020, BROOKSTON, IND – The Crasian Brewing Company in Brookston, IN, known for serving up “crazy good beer” hopes to serve “crazy good kindness” for the Brewers Association Believe in Beer Relief Fund. Founder Michele Bulington is making face masks to giveaway at its location at 207 S. Railroad Street with a suggested donation to the fund in return. Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb is advising residents to wear face masks in public through June 14 to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
The fund aims to aid small craft breweries across the nation seeing a loss of business during the pandemic.
“It will go to help cover expenses such as rent and wages,” says Bulington. “We were fortunate enough to receive a PPP for our needs but many other breweries across the country were not.” She and her husband Tom view other breweries as partners, not competitors noting, “This fund helps provide the assistance they urgently need to avoid a huge blow to the craft industry.”
Recently the brewery offered the opportunity for its patrons to buy crowlers of beer for essential medical personnel as a way to say “thank you.”
Crasian, which started as an inspired home brewing hobby for the Bulingtons, opened in September 2017, serving up an original menu of IPAs, Stouts, Pale Ales, and others. Its taproom has become a community staple for events such as euchre, poker, bingo, and trivia games. Regulars to the brewery come from near and far in Indiana and some even from Illinois. “We’ve adjusted our hours in response, selling online and allowing curbside pick-ups. We’re taking it day-by-day to decide when is the best time to open our taproom to full capacity.”
