“Breweries across South Florida have pooled their resources to help communities in the Bahamas that were decimated by Hurricane Dorian.
Dorian made landfall in the northern Bahamas September 1 as a Category 5 hurricane with sustained winds of 185 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center, and was stationary over the area for nearly two days. At least 20 deaths have been attributed to Dorian in Abaco and Grand Bahama alone, according to the Nassau Guardian.
Breweries from Miami-Dade to Palm Beach have organized their efforts to donate supplies and raise money for those affected.”
A few of the South Florida brewing co’s that will be gathering supplies, hosting events and raising funds to help the people of the Bahamas:
Beat Culture Brewery
7250 NW 11 St., Miami
These guys have just released Bahama Yellow, a Hefeweizen. Purchase the Bahamas-themed beer and the proceeds will go to Dorian relief. (pretty cool)
