New Squatters Beer Supports Refugees and Immigrants
From the melting pot to the brewing kettle, the story of Salt Lake Brewing Company - like most American stories - is one of immigrants. It was in the spirit of this legacy that Wasatch Sugar House server Rich Vosepka hatched the idea of brewing a beer to help our local refugee population. “Focusing on the two things that we do best – brewing beer and creating an environment where all feel welcome and safe – is a win-win for everyone,” says Vosepka.
“This promotion speaks directly to the core values of our company,” adds Chief Operating Officer Doug Hofeling. “Tempest-Tost Wit not only gives our guests the opportunity to try a unique and delicious beer, but also contribute to a truly worthwhile cause.”
The name for the beer comes from Emma Lazarus’ poem “The New Colossus,” which serves as an enduring reminder that we were all strangers once.
This beer is available starting today.
