SALEM, Va. (WDBJ) - A new tradition has started at Olde Salem Brewery in Salem and it’s all about helping those in need.

General Manager Cameron Weeks calls it “Helping Hands Tap.” Each month, the tap will donate $1 from the price of each beer sold to a different fund or charitable organization.

Right now, the money is going to a fund for Amanda Ulrich, who was the executive chef at Twisted Track Brewpub. The fund is to help with funeral expenses and support her children. The beer on tap is called Intergalactic, a dry hopped saison.

According to Weeks, he is in the process of finding other groups and funds to benefit from “Helping Hands.”
