News release from the SpoetzlBrewery:

The SpoetzlBrewery in Shiner, Texas, the 111-year-old independent craft brewery and brewer of the iconic Shiner Bock, announced today a contribution of $500,000 to the TX Restaurant Relief Fund.

The TX Restaurant Relief Fund initiative was established by the Texas Restaurant Association Education Foundation, the 501(c)(3) not-for-profit workforce development arm of the Texas Restaurant Association, to provide immediate financial relief to Texas independent restaurants and their employees impacted by COVID-19.

Through an application process, the fund issues grants of up to $5,000 per restaurant unit to keep restaurants in operation and their employees working.

Jimmy Mauric, Shiner’s Brewmaster, stated, “All of us have been affected by COVID-19. As of today, our brewery is fortunate to continue brewing with enhanced health and safety measures. But we are saddened to know that restaurants and bars throughout Texasthat are independent like usare in distress. We hope that our collective fundraising efforts will help them respond to the challenges that they’re facing.”

The restaurant, food service, and hospitality industries and their personnel are particularly affected by COVID-19. Shiner has a longstanding tradition of providing support to its neighbors in their times of need and is hopeful that this effort will provide some relief.

“This is an unprecedented time for our industry, fighting a never-before-seen battle for survival,” said Dr. Emily Williams Knight, President & CEO of the Texas Restaurant Association and Education Foundation. “In times of crisis, restaurants are always on the front lines, feeding victims and first responders; in this crisis, restaurants are among the victims. Together with amazing partners like Spoetzl Brewery, we can support restaurants and their employees, the heart of our communities, stay in operation and weather this storm.”

In addition to its donation, Shiner is encouraging its followers on social media to donate to the TX Restaurant Relief Fund initiative by texting “ShineOnTX” to 31996, and post a toast to those affected in the restaurant, foodservice or hospitality industry using the hashtag #ShineOnTX, contributing to the Fund reaching its $10 million goal.
