BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Minuteman Press of Buffalo, a locally owned and operated full service marketing service provider, has launched the #BeerItForward initiative which allows you to support front line health care workers.

Minuteman will be taking donations online here, with the donations it will purchase gift cards from participating local breweries and then deliver them to local hospitals for distribution to front line workers.

The gift cards will be able to be used on to-go orders for beer, food, or merchandise - or they can be saved for use when the tap rooms re-open.

Big Ditch Brewing Company, 12 Gates Brewing Company, New York Beer Project, Resurgence Brewing Company and Five & 20 Spirits and Brewing are some of the local breweries listed.

Health care facilities that would like to be on the distribution list and breweries that would like part of the program can call 716-855-3867.
