Bear Chase Helps

Bear Chase Helps is a partnership between Bear Chase Brewing Company, Pale Fire Brewing Co, Sysco Foods, and Digital Minerva. Our goal is to help people in the restaurant industry with direct support by supplying food products, free of charge.

The restaurant industry has been decimated by the COVID-19 virus and our country’s need to close or restrict public gathering spaces. Hundreds of restaurant workers in Harrisonburg and the surrounding area have been laid off with no idea of when they will be able to return to work. This means, for many, a total loss of income with little warning.

Bear Chase Brewing Comapny has a large, tasting room with open air patio which, like other breweries, is presently closed to the public. We have put that space to work as a pickup location for food items generously donated by Sysco Foods. Anyone in the restaurant industry is welcome to stop by our space and pick up shelf stable food items for themselves and their families in this time of need.

Digital Minerva has donated their services through the creation, hosting maintenance and ongoing updates of this website which provides up to date information to those in need.

Responsible sanitation and social distancing measures will be followed at all times.
