About The Giving Kitchen:

Ryan Hidinger ignited an important movement – people he’d never even met were so touched by his battle with cancer, they rallied to provide financial support. From this grew The Giving Kitchen, an Atlanta based non-profit that provides emergency assistance to restaurant workers in crisis.

As for the liquid? Our friend Ryan inspired that, too. In fact, the chef came to SweetWater and created the recipe with our brewers. You’ll taste the juniper berries – one helping was steeped in the brewhouse, then a second helping was added during the dry hop. The result is a slightly spicy and tangy taste with a nice, balanced citrus flavor and aroma.

Over the next 12 months, The Giving Kitchen plans to support our restaurant community to the tune of 1 million dollars in financial grants and community services. Folks, that’s a whole lot of SweetWater – so order another round, raise your glass and enjoy a Second Helping for a good cause!
