Help Skeleton Key Brewery

Our incredible friends at Skeleton Key Brewery in Woodridge experienced devastating damage to their brewery during the storms/tornado on June 20th. They have received news that their building will be condemned. Funds raised will go towards assisting owners Emily, Paul, & John, & their staff in as many ways as possible. This could include:

Immediate relief for staff compensation
Rental & purchase of items (trucks, gas, forklifts, etc)  to move what they can salvage out of their building
Feeding volunteers & staff assisting in moving product & supplies
Assist in rebuilding if/when possible

We have continued to raise the goal as others in the community have stepped forward to donate. Paul & Emily are still trying to determine their next steps beyond moving packaged beer out of the condemned building. They are ovewhelmed with the generosity of the craft beer community, and updates will continue to be made as they are passed along.

They have always stepped forward to help others in their time of need, and now it's our turn to help them in their time of need.

Thank you to everyone that has donated, volunteered, & shared this campaign!
