Troubled Monk Brews Up Hand Sanitizer for Desperate Businesses and Non-Profits


1 minute read

ReDiscover Red Deer – COVID-19 Response

The good people at Troubled Monk are at it again.  Faced with a challenging stretch due to the COVID-19 economic downturn Troubled Monk got creative.  Having heard about other breweries who started using brewing equipment to produce hand sanitizer, Charlie Bredo decided that would be the right move for Troubled Monk as well.

Being the community minded folks that they are, Troubled Monk decided this would be a good opportunity to give back.  While providing hand sanitizer to local businesses desperate for a supply, they’ll also be providing hand sanitizer to a few fortunate non-profits.. for free!

If you’re with one of those businesses or non-profits desperate for hand sanitizer you can get more information at [email protected].

If you need some for home, keep your eye on and Troubled Monk social media channels.  They hope to have good news for you later in March.
