COLORADO SPRINGS — There's no arguing that the Coronavirus (COVID-19) has changed a massive portion of our daily lives.
In the midst of these changes, many local businesses are finding ways to overcome and adapt to keep their doors open, while at the same time, help those around them.
Similarly, businesses hit hard are reporting a tremendous outpouring of support from the community.
This outpouring reminding all of us that while this global epidemic has changed so much, it HASN'T changed people's desire for community.
This is We're Open Colorado, a segment dedicated to highlighting local businesses that are still open and finding unique ways to serve the community.
With all of this in mind, let's take a look at Cerberus Brewing Company which has created Howling for Heroes, a brew that they are offering for free to our first responders and healthcare workers.
At the end of April, and continuing still, Cerberus started offering their new brew to frontline workers in an effort to say thank you for all the work they do to keep our community safe.
"We just felt [that] we had the space, we had the time, we had the schedule to open up to brew a beer and we figured why not give away a beer a day to first responders," stated Josh Adamski, part owner and head brewer at Cerberus.
All it takes is bringing in your badge or hospital identification and the brew pub will set you up, with a limit of one crowler per person.
"We hope that at the end of a long day or a long week, a free beer in your hand might help take the edge off a little bit," finished Carrie Simison, the company's brand ambassador.
You can find full details on this beer based initiative on the company's social media.
