DETROIT – The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has left many hospitality workers without a job.

To help them, breweries around the world are brewing up All Together, a beer intended to raise money for service workers impacted.

Breweries who choose to make the beer are asked that a portion of proceeds go to helping hospitality workers. The rest of the money will be used by the businesses so they can survive the pandemic.

Griffin Claw Brewing Co. in Birmingham has already released its version.

Ferndale Project is expected to release its beer Sunday, and Arvon Brewing Co. in Grand Rapids, HOMES Brewery in Detroit, Short’s Brewing Co. in Bellaire and Mothfire Brewing in Ann Arbor are slated to release their beers next month.

The COVID-19 impact has forced breweries in Michigan and around the United States to close their taprooms, leading to a loss of main income source.
