Help Craft Brewery Workers Who've Lost Jobs 

HomeBrewed is co-sponsoring the "Socially Distant Beer Festival", a fundraiser for the 450 people who have lost their jobs at craft breweries and tap rooms in Iowa. 
It's tough duty but I know you are up to it: 
1. Buy a $5 ticket: https://www.virtualbeerfest.org/tickets 
2. Pick up some of your favorite craft beer 
3. Join others on Twitter, Facebook, and/or Instagram on Saturday, March 28, so we can drink beer together (from a safe distance), with the help of our hashtag, #virtualbeerfest 

If you are outside Iowa, please support the employees at your local craft breweries and tap rooms. 

If you aren't a big craft beer fan, please find another group that you can assist during these challenging times. 

While there lots of folks are in need, this is a small, low-cost way of helping those who have provided we craft beer fans with a small piece of liquid joy. 

Thanks for helping our friends and neighbors far and near.

Please support your local non-profits 

During this time when we are unable to do benefit gigs, we would like to encourage you to consider donating to worthwhile charitable organizations in your area.

A few that we would like to suggest you consider are:

1) Domestic Violence intervention program (DVIP

2) CommUnity Food Bank

3) Shelter House for the Homeless

All are trying to help the less fortunate during these trying times.

Please be safe and stay well physically and emotionally!

MLK Work Day Celebration 

HomeBrewed was honored to be invited to play for the 2020 MLK work day celebration at Mercer Park in Iowa City. We played our original tribute song to Dr King, called Spirit of Hope, which speaks to what need in these divided times. Thank you MLK organizers!

Shelter House BBQ Bash was a blast 

HomeBrewed appreciated the opportunity to play in support of the great work of the Shelter House and their great work for the homeless.

The 3-400 in attendance enjoyed great BBQ pork, community and seemed to really enjoy the music!

Successful event for the Fifth Ward Saints North 

About 140 people attended the benefit dinner concert for the Fifth Ward Saints North at Ernie Found's farm on August 24. The event raised about $8000 through the live auction, silent auction, and good will donations. Thanks to all involved in organizing the event and for those making generous donations.

DVIP/NL Community Pantry event 

On what turned out to be a beautiful Sunday afternoon in the park in North Liberty, Mike Haverkamp and HomeBrewed had fun playing to a very receptive audience in support of two great causes-The Domestic Violence Intervention Program and the North Liberty Community Pantry. Thank you to both groups for the great work for those in need.
