Beer For Bombs: Raising money so a Ukrainian brewery can fight back
POMPANO BEACH, FL – On Saturday, May 7, a special beer will debut at a South Florida craft brewery. Called Beer For Bombs, the recipe for this stout comes directly from Pravda Brewery in Lviv, Ukraine. The award-winning Ukrainian brand stopped making beer and converted its bottling line to Molotov cocktails after Russia invaded on Feb. 24.
Pravda’s owners posted some of their secret recipes online and asked breweries around the world to produce their beer to raise money and awareness. Beer For Bombs is South Florida’s effort, and proceeds from all sales will go back to Pravda, which will use the money for both humanitarian aid and weapons production – but mostly weapons, according to the owners.
The release party is 5-7 p.m. on Saturday, May 7, at 26 Degree Brewing, 2600 E Atlantic Blvd in Pompano Beach. 26 Degree has donated the ingredients and labor, while support has been provided by BrowardBeer.com and leaders from the Society For Professional Journalism.
The first 50 people at the release party will receive a free can of Beer For Bombs if they buy a draft for $8. Entertainment will be provided by the Ukrainian Dancers of Miami. For more information, contact SPJ senior regional coordinator Michael Koretzky at firstname.lastname@example.org.
