Half Acre Employee Relief Fund

Many people just want to be around beer, often doing various brewery jobs just to be involved. Just to be around like-minded people. Just to be in beer. You can’t say that about many industries. Beer is truly unique.

With recent events, many breweries, including Half Acre, were forced to let people go in order to plan for prolonged business interruption followed by an extended, or permanent, new reality. So, along with our own support of the affected staff, we developed some opportunities for you to show solidarity or offer assistance for the positive impact these Half Acrens have had on your existence:

All proceeds from this GoFundMe Page, as well as the “We’re Still Beer” merchandise line, available at the link below, go to Half Acre staff out of work at this time.
