While the stay at home orders may have many of us having a roller coaster of emotions, I think we can all appreciate how creative the businesses have been in order to still deliver us the things we love, and the "essentials". Those essentials just might include, the refreshing, cold sip of an IPA, Pale ale, wine, or whatever your tastes buds delight in. Never in a million years did I think you could order an alcoholic beverage with your take out order. When I think of all the parents at home with their kids getting a handle on the virtual learning, I chuckle cause I bet they are thanking God that they can order that bottle with their kids burgers and fries! But If I can get serious for a little bit. The virus and Stay at Home orders are a big hit to not only the economy but local small business and charitable efforts. Today's feature is Lithermans Limited Brewery. Many breweries are known for coming up with special brews and can's specific to a charitable cause, where the proceeds go towards that said charity. Lithermans owner, Michael was looking forward to a 4 day event that was going to help NH Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence. It's a scary time right now for those who have to stay home with an abuser. Here's what their Facebook Post had to say.
"We had planned a four-day celebration THIS weekend to benefit the New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence. Unfortunately, it's being rescheduled. Their services are needed more than ever. If you can, please go and donate:" https://www.nhcadsv.org/iwillsurvive.html
The Beer is called. I WILL SURVIVE. If you'd like to show support by purchasing the special can they released for the beer here is their website. Or as their event poster said. "Help yourself to one, and help somebody else." https://lithermans.beer

Many of their selections are sold in the local restaurants so feel free to ask which Lithermans cans they have available the next time you place an order!
Here's a little history on the company.
"It all started just like the universe - with music. Doc Jones and MHP were stuck in the same Orange box for different reasons, found themselves comparing notes on NoFX's "White Trash, Two Heebs, and A Bean," and decided to finish the conversation over a pint. One thing led to another, and pretty soon they were recording tracks together. That was the beginning of 'Lithermans Load'. A Litherman's Load is an archaic phrase for carrying too much at once. It is like returning from the grocery store with a car full of stuff, and instead of making several sensible trips you attempt to carry it all in one load. You trip on the cat and the steps, you fight with the keys, the bags rip... these silly boys thought that by recording a few times a month they were carrying too much. This continued for several years and a few dozen tracks. Eventually, making beer replaced making music, and Lithermans Limited homebrewery was born. Soon enough, the entrepreneurial bug bit, and they started writing a business plan. That was almost a decade ago. Lithermans opened its doors 4 years ago, and has focused on brewing musical spins on classic styles, with a heavy emphasis on IPAs and kettle sours. Cheers!"
