Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County is announcing the launch of The House that Beer Built, a series of fundraising and volunteer events held throughout South Palm Beach County at local breweries.  The first Kick-Off event will be held at Delray Beach’s Saltwater Brewery located at 1701 W Atlantic Ave, Delray Beach, FL 33444 on October 27th from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm.  Saltwater Brewery will be donating $1 from every sale of a select beer to Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County.  Each partnering brewery will have beers on tap.  Light Bites will be provided by both Dada and Tryst. 

The goal of The House that Beer Built is to celebrate the collaborative brewing industry of South Palm Beach County and their community commitment to raise the walls on a new home for a deserving and hardworking family in South Palm Beach County.  The home will be located in Boynton Beach, FL for the Singletary Family. “The majority of our brewery partners are born and raised in Delray and we have participated in builds [as volunteers] when we were teenagers.  Being natives to the area, community involvement is of great importance to us and obviously housing is a top interest.” says Bo Eaton, Co-founder of Saltwater Brewery, “We couldn't be more excited to work with Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County on this project and help make a positive impact in our immediate backyard with families in need.”

Future events will be held at the following participating breweries:

  • Saltwater Brewery
  • Barrel of Monks Brewing
  • Due South Brewing Co.
  • Funky Buddha Brewery
  • Devour Brewing Company
  • Copperpoint Brewing Company

“It was overwhelming to see the immediate support we had from all 6 local breweries the second we approached them with the idea. Each brewery was on board from the start and willing to do whatever they could to make this a successful campaign. Habitat for Humanity doesn’t typically work with breweries, so this has been a fun excuse to partner with local businesses for a good cause.’ says Michelle Chancey, Director of Volunteer Engagement, Habitat for Humanity of South Palm Beach County.  Chancey continues, “We launched this event to engage a new population in our service area. This is an opportunity for community members to fundraise, volunteer and advocate for the mission of safe and affordable housing in South Palm Beach County while also enjoying craft beer from six local breweries! This is their opportunity to drink beer for a good cause!”
