Burlington, CT: Evening Sky Brewing Co “Project Never Forgotten” Fundraiser 1.28.23 and beer unveiling! 12:30pm to 9:30pm
Evening Sky Brewing Company held a smaller fundraiser shortly after the incident in Bristol this past October, but like many others wanted to do more. After the team at Evening Sky brainstormed, they came up with “Project Never Forgotten”, and opted to design a completely new beer to honor the lives and service of Lieutenant Dustin Demonte and Sergeant Alex Hamzy. Working with contacts at Bristol PD, they obtained a digital copy of the new Never Forgotten sticker that has been circulating around and decided to make a custom beer label.
"We finished a pilot of the beer in December and then brewed and canned 50 cases, our largest ever canning run, this past week. Staff worked hard and even donated their time! These cans will be released on the 28th of January with a percent of sales going directly to the Bristol Police Heroes Fund." - Charles J. Clampett, Founder, C.E.O., Evening Sky Brewing Company
Former Bristol CT Police Detective Garrie Dorman is an operations manager at Evening Sky and former Officer MJ Warner runs the taproom on Fridays. "Being that we are so close to the community of Bristol, and have staff who are still members of the Bristol Police family, this is very near and dear to us" - Evening Sky team
The Evening Sky Brewing company tries to host a meaningful charitable event on a monthly basis, this one in particular is very near and dear to their hearts.
"While we typically give a percent of proceeds from the day of an event to charity, with this event, considering the emotion surrounding it, we will give a percent of proceeds of all sales of “Never Forgotten” every day we make a sale, whether from our taproom or through broader distribution! We are hoping that we set a precedent and can see additional beer releases to support other meaningful charities!" - Charles J. Clampett Founder, C.E.O., Evening Sky Brewing Company
"January 28th is going to be our small way to say THANK YOU HEROES!" - Evening Sky team
