Drink beer, help people. It's something that would make Homer Simpson and Norm from Cheers so proud and it's happening right here in New Jersey, as well as the whole country.

Other Half Brewing Company out of Brooklyn has come up with an All Together IPA recipe that they will gladly give local breweries. They ask that a portion of the proceeds go to supporting hospitality professionals in their community. The rest they suggest should go to keeping the brewers in business.

"There is an inextricable link that binds together everyone in the hospitality industry," says Other Half. "Brewers, servers, bartenders, bussers, dishwashers, GMs, buyers, chefs, owners—we are all in this together. In this industry, when one of us struggles, the rest of us pick them up. It's baked into who we are."

Other half will donate their proceeds to the Restaurant Workers Community Foundation, Community is what they're all about. As they say:

"At the end of the day, this is about what it's always been about—community. While we may not be able to come together in person right now, that spirit can never be taken away from us. If we do our part to protect and support each other, that spirit can actually be strengthened."
