A brief glance inside the Fremont Mischief Distillery early this week showed a chaotic sight – the entire, small-batch distillery courtyard filled with kegs of the locally-made Fremont Brewing beer!
While both Fremont Mischief and Fremont Brewing have seen strong, steady sales of their fine, crafted beverages during the COVID-19 restrictions, the Brewery has been unable to deliver its regular shipment of kegs as the bars and restaurants stay closed to combat the pandemic. These kegs will soon pass their imbibe by date, and Fremont Mischief has offered to take them, remove the beer and convert it into hand-sanitizer.
Fremont Mischief is now shipping hand-sanitizer out, nationally, to address shortages in other communities. However, if you or someone you know, needs hand-sanitizer, contact Fremont Mischief to order some – including industrial sizes for hospitals, clinics or first-responders’ units.
