Breweries give back with the House That Beer Built

Parry’s Pizzeria & Bar joins 10 breweries and local businesses for the House That Beer Built, a partnership with Habitat for Humanity of the St. Vrain Valley to support affordable ownership in the community. A kick-off party celebrates the construction of the program’s second home on Thursday, August 16, from 6:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. at Parry’s Longmont location at 1232 South Hover Road. Silent auction items, t-shirt sales and proceeds from select beers at the event will be donated to help St. Vrain Habitat build a home for a family in need.

“Parry’s is a Colorado-based family business that is passionately dedicated to improving the communities we serve,” says Jon Hook, CEO of Parry’s Pizzeria & Bar. “We give back to these communities with a variety of events throughout the year and the House That Beer Built is one of our favorite causes to support. As a restaurant with a focus on craft beer, we couldn’t be more thrilled to join the outstanding roster of breweries and businesses supporting this effort to build a home for a family in need in our Longmont community.”

This year the St. Vrain Valley affiliate plans to build a home in partnership with the Robles family through the House That Beer Built program. Alejandra Robles is a mother to a full-time college student and a three year old who requires in-home therapy so becoming a Habitat homeowner offers a newfound stability for her family’s future.

“Breweries in the first House that Beer Built collectively raised over $50,000 and contributed more than 500 volunteer hours making the project a success,” says David Emerson, executive director for Habitat for Human of the St. Vrain Valley.  “The craft brewing industry is a tremendous supporter of our community and we are excited to be working with them again on the House That Beer Built.”

Participating breweries and businesses for the House That Beer Built include:
