Obed and Isaac's craft new brew for Springfield Fire Department
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WICS/WRSP) —
Obed and Isaac's showed their gratitude to local firefighters Thursday.
The brewery started brewing a new beer called "Station 1 Smoked Porter."
The new brew comes after a fire at Obed and Isaac's Beer Garden kitchen broke out.
Owners said they wanted to thank the fire crews for quickly containing the fire before it caused more damage and gave them an inside look at the brewing process.
"They enjoyed the heck out of it. A lot of people enjoy beer, but they don't know how it's made. So, this gives them the chance to learn how it's made," Owner Court Conn said.
"Station 1 Smoked Porter" will be released June 20.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Memorial Medical Center's burn unit.
