Now that the bars and nightclubs have been temporarily shut down due to the coronavirus, there’s one St. Pete brewery that is making hand sanitizer and donating it. They originally made the sanitizer free for people who came by their brewery in St. Pete, but because of an overwhelming response, 3 Daughters Brewery has decided to donate all the hand sanitizer instead.
Their post read:
“Friends and family, 3 Daughters Brewing made hand sanitizer and the response was overwhelming. In the past few hours we have received THOUSANDS of phone calls, emails, texts and people coming to the brewery.
Our desire to help has quickly grown into an event that we did not intend; hundreds of people gathering at our brewery at the same time. We feel it is the responsible decision for us to cancel our initial plan. Please allow us the opportunity to distribute all of this responsibly and in accordance with state and federal guidelines.
Please do not show up at the brewery tomorrow. We will donate all product and future product through several charity organizations within the community. We are sorry, in these unprecedented times, we never expected this incredible response, and, as is our mission, we always want to do what is in our community’s best interest.
3 Daughters Brewing team
As everyone tries to navigate through this unprecedented time, we are going to do everything we can to help our partners, employees and the community that is affected by this crisis.
One thing we can do is re-purpose our brewing equipment and materials to produce our own hand sanitizer. Right now, we are bottling 4-ounce bottles of hand sanitizer and will be making them available to anyone for free starting this Thursday. Please limit one per person so we can try and help as many people as possible. Just stop by the brewery between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. and we will give you one free bottle, per person, until we are out.
As the situation around Coronavirus escalates, we wanted to share what’s happening and how it will affect 3 Daughters Brewing. In accordance with the mandates and policies set forth by the state government, we are forced to close the tasting room for at least 30 days. Unfortunately, this also means for the time being, we are not able to provide any To-Go beverage options.
The 3 Daughters family is committed to keeping the foundation of the brewery solid so as soon as the mandate is removed, and the crisis is past we can re-open and see you all back here again soon enjoying your favorite beer, cider, seltzer or hard soda!”
