The House That Beer Built
Posted: July 2, 2013
This summer, eight local craft breweries — Black Bottle Brewery, C.B. & Potts Restaurant & Brewery, Coopersmith’s Pub & Brewing, Equinox Brewing, Fort Collins Brewery, Odell Brewing, New Belgium Brewing, and Pateros Creek Brewing have come together to sponsor and build a Habitat for Humanity home in Fort Collins, the House That Beer Built (HTBB). They have come together to celebrate their collaborative brewing environment and shared community commitment and need your help in raising money to raise the walls on a new home!
Our goal is to raise $100,000 to build a home for the Andrasik Family, the HTBB Partner Family, who lost their home last summer in the High Park Fire.We will be rebuilding on the same land in Rist Canyon, helping to rebuild the future of this family. The Andrasik Family is excited for this opportunity and to meet you, their neighbors, as you rebuild beside them.The Andrasik Family is not given their new home.
Every Habitat partner family pays back a zero-interest mortgage and puts in 300-500 hours of sweat equity on their home before moving in. Habitat sets your neighbors up for successful futures by providing affordable housing to hard-working, local families and individuals. We encourage you to craft a home and hope alongside your favorite breweries!
The breweries will break ground on their House That Beer Built home in August 2013, in partnership with a local family and finish so the family will be home for the holidays. Every dollar given through the Community Funded initiative will be used for “bricks and sticks” for the construction of the home. Each brewery will contribute sales from designated House That Beer Built kegs starting in August and have offered individualized brewery-based rewards to help fund this home.
