Wisconsin breweries team up to help those experiencing domestic violence

Delta Beer Lab Domestic Violence Fundraiser

MADISON, Wis. — A number of breweries, including Madison-based Delta Beer Lab, are teaming up to raise money to help those experiencing domestic violence.

Delta Beer Lab announced Thursday it will donate one dollar for every pint of the new “One in Four” IPA it sells to Domestic Abuse Intervention Services. The beer’s name highlights the fact that one in four women — and one in nine men — will experience some form of domestic violence in their lives.

Milwaukee-based Third Space Brewing created the recipe and is offering it to any breweries that want to participate in the awareness effort.

“When we at Delta Beer Lab saw our friends at Third Space Brewing in Milwaukee put out a call-to-action to join them in this fight against domestic violence we were eager to join in,” owner Michelle Riehn said in a news release. “Partnering with DAIS made sense as they are a local provider of support services for those affected by domestic violence.”

Delta Beer Lab plans to launch the beer at its Madison taproom and at restaurants and liquor stores across Dane County on Sept. 21.

According to the release, the India Pale Ale “boasts notes of citrus, stone fruit, and berries which are balanced by a nutty malt breadiness.”

If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence, there are resources available to help. The National Domestic Violence Hotline is open 24/7 at 800-799-7233. DAIS — Domestic Abuse Intervention Services — can be reached at 608-251-4445 or abuseintervention.org.
