Smylie Brothers Hourly Employee Virtual Tip Jar

As you know- our Brewpub is closed for regular service and operating on a to-go basis only.  We have a skeleton crew that unfortunately leaves much of our hosts, servers, bartenders, support, and BOH staff out of work.  We are making this campaign available to help provide additional support for our dedicated staff.   All funds donated will be split among all current hourly staff members who are unable to work.  Every little bit helps.   We've also added a few fun (optional) incentives for those who choose to chip in a little extra. 

Be safe and stay healthy, friends!

Donations of the following amounts include the following perks at no additional cost

$50 Donation - Smylie Bros swag bag (stickers, coasters, coozie)

$100 Donation- Shotgun a beer with a Brewer.   High res photos taken to immortalize the joyous occasion and delivered in digital format.  

$200 - Autographed 8.5x11 photo of Pub Brewer Tim, Brad Pulver, or Brewer Anders executing one of their sultry Sky Pours.

$250 - Set Tim's Pandora station in the Pub Brewhouse for a day.  Option to sit at the bar and watch him love it or hate it.  We prefer the latter.   We'll buy Lunch for you and a friend while you're here.  

Please reach out to brad.sillars AT with your donation confirmation to begin the fulfillment process of your incentives.  Hours will vary so we  appreciate your patience in advance.  Many of these in-person options will not be fulfilled until safe to do so.   EVERY little bit helps and goes directly to our staff.  Incentives are optional and only fulfilled upon request.  One incentive per donation.
