Worcester, MA: In response to the tragic death of Worcester Firefighter Christopher Roy, Wachusett Brewing Co., and Wormtown Brewing Co., have come together to brew up Worcester’s Bravest, a beer committed to raising funds for the Ava Roy Fund in support of Roy’s 9-yr old daughter.
One hundred percent of the proceeds will be donated to the fund that has been set up by the Worcester International Association of Firefighters Local 1009.
“We are super excited to team up with Wachusett on the project.” said David Fields, Managing Partner of Wormtown Brewery. “I cannot think of a better way to honor Firefighter Roy’s memory and his family.”
The beer style for Worcester’s Bravest is a Belgian Wit, a light-bodied, unfiltered, wheat beer. “It has sweet and zesty citrus notes with some complex pepper spice and herbal hops” said Ben Roesch, Brewmaster of Wormtown Brewery”. “While still being refreshing and easy drinking” added Dave Howard, Brewmaster at Wachusett Brewing Company.
“Wachusett Brewing Company has had a long relationship with the Worcester Firefighter Community dating back to our original support of the Leary Firefighter Foundation” said Christian McMahan, President of Wachusett Brewing Company. “David and I have been speaking for over a year about doing something, up until now we never had the right reason to come together, we are both honored to be a part of something that has such a profound impact on our community.”
Donations can also be made directly to the Ava Roy Fund and mailed to the Worcester Fire Department Credit Union, 34 Glennie St, Worcester, MA 01605.
