Santa Fe Brewing Co. has taken the sentiment “we’re all in this together” to heart.
The brewery is giving 100% of the proceeds from its taproom sales to its hourly employees. Forty of the brewery’s 72 employees will benefit from the program.
“There’s a lot of uncertainty on how all of this is going to work,” said Jarrett Babincsak, vice president of Santa Fe Brewing Co. “How long is it going to be for people to actually see the unemployment benefits? What are the unemployment benefits going to be? What are the processing times going to look like? So our thought process was, we don’t know and our people are scared because they don’t know. We’re going to take care of them until we’re all certain what the best way to handle this is for everyone.”
