New beer from Zipline Brewing will help raise funds for Ukrainian refugees
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Lincoln’s Zipline Brewing Company is partnering with Operation Safe Harbor Ukraine to help raise funds for refugees in Poland.
Zipline Brewing worked together with OSHU to create the Safe Harbor Pale Ale.
One dollar from every pint sold will be donated directly to the program to help pay for hotel rooms in Warsaw, Poland.
“We fully understand the simple act of brewing beer in the midwestern U.S. will not change the course of destruction in Ukraine,” said Zipline co-founder Tom Wilmoth. “If we can help one or two folks, or hopefully a thousand, find a way to participate in easing the pain for a couple hundred people, then maybe we’ve done our part.”
The beer will be released on May 6 and will be available at Zipline locations in Lincoln and Omaha.
Operation Safe Harbor Ukraine is a nonprofit that was created by a Nebraska travel agency, Executive Travel.
The program helps provide hotel rooms, food, medical supplies and Wi-Fi for Ukrainian refugees in Poland.
“We’ve decided now is the time for action, so we’re leading an effort to help 200 refugee family members by getting them off the streets in Poland and getting them into a warm bed,” said Steve Glenn, president of Executive Travel. “We appreciate Zipline’s help in getting our message out and we ask all those who can to join us.”
