Ommegang/Duvel USA to the rescue

SimonThorpe President of Ommegang/Duvel USA sent this message out last week-

“To all our brewery friends impacted by Sandy,

We understand that a number of breweries are still flooded, damaged or unable to operate for many reasons post-Sandy. This is an offer of help wherever it is needed.

If you are unable to operate and we can help we will. We have spare capacity here at Cooperstown; materials and ingredients; packing capacity; distribution capabilities etc etc. If you are unable to brew and any of that is of use to you we will gladly pitch in our team and our resources. Equally, we have been working the phones trying to make contact with other breweries hit and if you know of anyone else who needs help then please could I ask you to let me know?

We were battened down here and expecting the worst in upstate NY, but fortunately the storm worked further south and west and we were spared. 

You can reach me either on this email address or my cell phone.

If we can help yourselves or others in any way, please let me know. People have helped us in the past and the craft movement is better because we we all pitch in and help each other.

Best regards to you and your people,
