The hospitality industry has taken a huge hit globally. But considering how tight-knit its communities tend to be—especially when you’re talking about craft beer—it should come as no surprise that New York’s Other Half Brewing Company has launched a grassroots initiative that sees proceeds of one special beer, the All Together IPA, donated to hospitality-related charities. Now, that initiative has reached Thailand, thanks to craft beer importer and distributor Beerlicious.
The All Together IPA features a recipe created by Other Half that breweries and even home-brewers across the world can make. They can also package and sell it. The only stipulation is that some portion of the proceeds must be donated to help those in the hospitality industry in some way. So far, 825 breweries in 53 countries have participated. You can even find the recipe here.
This is where Beerlicious comes into play. They’ve imported the All Together IPA from Spain’s renowned Garage Brewing Co. and are donating some of the proceeds to the Pimali Foundation. That organization offers training to underprivileged children in northeastern Thailand to help them pursue a future in hospitality—one of the most important industries for the working class, and one that has been crippled by the pandemic.
Donations cover the cost of food, accommodation, materials and uniforms, from the start of their training to the end of it, when the students set out to land internships in the industry.
You can learn more about the Pimali Foundation’s efforts here and make a donation, if you’re so inclined. You can also order All Together (B445/440ml) on and enjoy a delicious beer while supporting Thailand’s future hospitality workers at the same time.
