Kick off ‘Giving Season’ with a tapping of SweetWater Second Helping IPA

For the sixth time, SweetWater Brewing is partnering with The Giving Kitchen to release the limited-edition Second Helping IPA. 

And as always, 100 percent of the profits from SweetWater and United Distributors will be donated to the Giving Kitchen non-profit to help provide emergency assistance to restaurant workers through financial support and a network of community resources.

In prior years Second Helping was released in January. But for 2019, the SweetWater and Giving Kitchen folks decided to debut the annual Second Helping drive in November — a time when beer sales are higher, and will likely generate more revenue for the cause during the Thanksgiving and “Giving Season.” 

What’s more, you can join in early, too, when SweetWater taps a special batch of Second Helping during a Giving Kitchen fundraising event at the brewery from 4:20-9 p.m. on Nov. 15.

Tickets are $20, with all proceeds going to the Giving Kitchen, and include a brisket sandwich from SweetWater chef Nick Anderson, your choice of a pint of SweetWater beer, and a Second Helping IPA crowler to-go. 

Buy tickets here.
