Andy Shaw Band and Homestead Beer Co. Beer and Single Release to Benefit Dude Charity
Columbus, OH, June 6, 2019 - A cold beer on a hot day, music you can’t help but groove to, connecting with friends old and new, and supporting local charitable causes are all things you can expect at Woodlands Tavern on July 12th, 2019. Andy Shaw Band (ASB) and Homestead Beer Co. have come together to create a unique vision of the standard beer-and-band collaboration. It has been a dream of Andy Shaw’s to find more creative ways to include charitable actions in everything the band does. ASB presented Homestead with the idea to create a beer, release a new single, put on a show, and support a charity all at the same time. Homestead, always eager to support local musicians and organizations, jumped on it.
Shaw-Hio is the result of their teamwork, a slightly hazy and fully refreshing IPA that leaves you ready for one more. Named for ASB’s to be released single “Ohio”, a song that is ultimately about hope and healing. Andy Shaw had this to say about the single “Ohio is a song about where I am from. Not just literally but where I come from personally, musically… and how in order to learn and grow you sometimes have to leave a part of who you were behind.” One dollar of every beer sold will go to support the Dude Charity, one that is near and dear to Homestead. Dude Charity, inspired by acts of random kindness and extreme fandom for The Big Lebowski, created an organization that donates time and money to a different local charity each month.
Andy Shaw Band, Homestead, and Dude Charity are also teaming up with a new app, POINT. POINT’s app is the easiest way to volunteer, ever. Simply download the free app and pick causes you care about, find an event, tap “go” and show up. Representatives will be present to answer any questions, help sign users up, and give away some cool swag.
