The relief efforts continue in Southern Florida where Hurricane Irma’s path of destruction left sun-soaked communities in flooded disarray and many without electricity. To help keep Florida’s relief efforts at the forefront, Golden Road Brewing is drumming up support with the release of Sunshine State, a new brew that directs 100% of sales to those impacted by the natural disaster.
Sunshine State is a beautiful blonde ale infused with flavorful blood oranges that burst with bright citrus flavors and aromas. Golden Road truly believes that beer brings people together and Sunshine State is the brewery’s way of taking its passion for beer and bringing people together to lend a hand one pint at a time.
What: Golden Road Brewing has announced the release of a new beer benefiting Hurricane Irma relief efforts. One hundred percent of the proceeds from sales of the “Sunshine State” beer will be donated to Habitat for Humanity of Florida and H.A.L.O. Rescue to assist in each organization’s hurricane relief efforts. Sunshine State is a crisp blonde ale infused with flavorful blood oranges to create a beer bursting with amazingly bright citrus flavors and aromas.
Why: The team at Golden Road are firm believers that beer brings people together. Sunshine State is our small way of taking our passion for beer and bringing people together to lend a hand in this time of need. We hope this effort will provide much needed aid to those individuals and families that were so dramatically impacted, helping them rebuild their lives and get back on their feet as quickly as possible.

About H.A.L.O. Rescue
H.A.L.O. Rescue was created in 2006 with a mission to create a NO KILL safe haven for abused and abandoned animals. H.A.L.O. believes in a community where there are no more homeless pets and that together we can eliminate the killing of companion animals. What sets us apart from other shelters is we are Indian River County’s only No Kill animal shelter. This means we do not euthanize for age, space, medical needs, or behavioral issues. Once an animal enters H.A.L.O. we make a pledge to them to provide all physical, emotional, and medical care needed until a forever home is found. While we primarily deal with Indian River County and our mission is to make Indian River County No Kill we also bring in animals all over the state and even outside of Florida. HALO saves over 2000 animals each year but our work is not done. In 2016 1,400 dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens still lost their lives in Indian River county. With your help, HALO is here to end this because there is a better way. It doesn’t have to happen. We depend on animals for everything including unconditional love but can they depend on us in return.
