Mitten Brewing Pouring Beers For Mental Health
A new creation of Beer City USA is now available that's not only delicious, but it helps support a great cause, mental health. Mitten Brewing Co. company announced that as of today, "Things We Don't Say IPA" will be available on tap at Mitten Brewing.
The Mitten Brewing Co. and Trail Point Brewing teamed up to produce "Things We Don't Say IPA". The new beer's proceeds will help fund no-cost mental health services for all Mitten Employees at The Well Being.
The announcement was made today on facebook by Mitten co-founder Chris Andrus:
I’m Chris Andrus, the co-founder of The Mitten Brewing Co., and I have struggled with mental health issues for most of my life. We've joined our friends at Trail Point Brewing Company to brew a beer designed to bring awareness to these issues that exist in our (and every) industry."Things We Don’t Say IPA" will be ON TAP WHEN WE OPEN TODAY AT 4 P.M. Sales of this beer will fund ZERO COST MENTAL HEALTH COUNSELING for all Mitten Brewing employees. Thank you in advance for drinking this beer and supporting this important program!!!
When announcing the project a few weeks ago, Andrus told us about the unique struggles those in the service industry have faced:
It’s no secret that restaurant workers have been on the receiving end of entirely too much unwarranted customer abuse these past 14 months. We’ve tried our best to provide a stable and safe environment, but the pandemic has presented challenges no one could have imagined. Stress has invaded every aspect of our lives, and it’s been a lot to carry.
