Beer for good: Colibri puerto rico Hurricane Relief Gose

Months after Hurricane Maria, nearly half Puerto Rico’s residents are still without power and other basic human needs. Everyone knows the island needs aid, but despite our best intentions, many mainlanders don’t know what they can do to help. However, for fans of Down The Road, contributing to PR reconstruction is as easy sipping a few beers. 

This week, DTR releases its newest beer: Colibri Hurricane Relief Gose. This delightfully tart brew is brimming with tropical flavor from guava, mango and native, Puerto Rican sea salt, and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to hurricane relief efforts via The Boston Foundation. Join us for the release party on January 25 (this Thursday) for authentic PR food, live music and salsa lessons. Several Puerto Rican artists have also volunteered to hang art for the party, all of which will be for sale.

There’s a lot of hard work to be done, and we applaud everyone who is putting in the sweat equity required for comprehensive restoration, but we also recognize that not everyone can put on a hard hat, take off work and fly to Puerto Rico to swing a hammer. However, that doesn’t mean you’re powerless to make a difference.

Please join us for the night, learn some more about the culture, enjoy some delicious new beer, try your hand at dancing and be the change you want to see in the world.
