Bushfire Relief Week

MILWAUKEE (February 18th, 2020) – In the wake of the recent Australian bushfires, Lakefront Brewery is spending a week raising funds to contribute to the Resilience Beer project, a craft beer-centric campaign to help impacted communities begin the healing process through regeneration and rehabilitation. The Resilience campaign first surfaced in response to the 2018 California Camp Fire, but it has returned with an aim to send support to Australia. Craft breweries around the world are encouraged to either brew a beer or find other ways to support and raise as much funds as possible to help the impacted communities.

In celebration of #FlagshipFebruary, from Sunday, February 23rd through Saturday, February 29th, Lakefront Brewery will be offering a discounted price on their two flagship brews, Riverwest Stein and IPA (only at the brewery). Pints of each brew will be $3. Lakefront will be matching that $3 price and donating it entirely to Australian bushfire relief by way of the Resilience fundraiser.

“What Australia had to endure is a terrible tragedy, we’re glad that the Resilience Program exists to help the craft brewing world band together to provide the much-needed support”, said Brewery Founder and President Russ Klisch.

Lakefront Brewery encourages everyone to stop by the week starting Sunday, February 23rd to enjoy one of two Milwaukee craft beer favorites for a great cause.
