Help Puerto Rico: $1 from every beer sold in these Minnesota taprooms Thursday will go to hurricane relief

$1 from every beer sold in these taprooms Thursday will go to hurricane relief.

If you're looking for a way to help people in Puerto Rico who were devastated by Hurricane Irma and Maria, why not have a beer? 

A bunch of Minnesota breweries (see a list below) are joining together for Pints for Puerto Rico. They'll be donating $1 from every pint sold in the taproom on Thursday to Unidos Por Puerto Rico (United for Puerto Rico). 

Unidos Por Puerto Rico was set up by Puerto Rico's First Lady Beatriz Rosselló in the wake of the recent hurricanes. The storms left most of the island without power, and many people without access to food, water and medicine. 

Here's a list of the participating breweries: 

  • 10K Brewing
  • 612BREW
  • Angry Inch Brewing
  • Back Channel Brewing
  • Bald Man Brewing
  • Bent Brewstillery
  • Bent Paddle Brew Co.
  • Blackstack Brewing
  • Excelsior Brewing Company
  • Flat Earth Brewing
  • Fulton Brewing
  • Headflyer Brewing
  • Insight Brewing
  • Jack Pine Brewing
  • Lake Monster Brewing
  • Lift Bridge Brewing
  • Lupulin Brewing Company
  • Mankato Brewing
  • NorthGate Brewing
  • Sisyphus Brewing
  • Sociable Cider Werks
  • Surly Brewing
  • Utepils Brewing
  • Urban Growler
