As many of you may have already heard, Skeleton Key, a family owned & operated brewery/taproom in Woodridge, experienced devastating damage to their facility during the tornado on June 20th. They have received news that the building will be condemned, and will need all the help they can get to begin recovery from this terrible event.
The local brewing community has helped us out countless times over the years with events, education, expertise, and so much more – now is our chance to give back. The Chicago Beer Society Board of Directors has made a donation and we’re calling on our fellow members to pitch in as well with whatever amount you can; every bit helps. Let’s show the love & support this group has for our brewing scene with a flood of donations coming from Chicago Beer Society!
Funds raised will go towards assisting owners Emily, Paul, & John, & their staff in as many ways as possible. This could include:
- Immediate relief for staff compensation
- Rental & purchase of items (trucks, gas, forklifts, etc) to move what can be salvaged
- Feeding volunteers & staff assisting in moving product & supplies
- Assistance in rebuilding if/when possible
