COLORADO SPRINGS– Local Relic, a Colorado Springs Brewery, is offering a free beer to frontline employees, complete with a love note on the label, with words of encouragement during the coronavirus pandemic.
Community members can sponsor a bottle of beer, and write a thank you message digitally, which will be written on the bottle by Local Relic employees.
Frontline employees, whether it’s first responders, grocery store employees, or restaurant workers – anyone who interacts with the public – are invited to stop by during regular business hours for a free bottle to take home.
Local Relic is located at 320 S Weber Street (in the Carter Payne, a 120-year-old historic stone church) and open for carry-out weekdays from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and weekends from 12:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. They are also temporarily offering delivery, at least for the duration of the statewide stay-at-home order.
Local Relic brews 200 different beers a year. They say they are the brewing equivalent to a farm-to-table restaurant, offering new small-batch seasonal beers.
Founder and co-owner Jeff Zearfos says it’s just one way they can show their gratitude to hard-working front line workers in the community:
“The support of the local community means the world to us and it was important for us to figure out how we could make a difference and help to bright the days of those who are working so hard and offering so much to us to help keep everything operating,” Zearfos said.
