Now this is a terrific partnership - Imagine Nation Brewing, along with several other local businesses, has teamed up with Coaster Cycles, a bike manufacturer that has a location in Bonner, to develop more than 2 MILLION face shields to distribute to healthcare workers across the country.

Basically, Coaster Cycles stopped production on its bikes in mid-March and switched to making face shields, in an effort to do some good and keep their team members employed. Demand got high pretty quick, and they've been enlisting help from other local businesses over the past few months to get it done.

So to celebrate the collaboration, Imagine Nation Brewing has done what they do best - make beer! They're calling it the Fighting Chance New England IPA, and for every four-pack of the beer that gets sold, another face mask will be donated to one of several organizations, including AG Worker Health & Services, The Montana Racial Equity Project, Missoula County Public Schools, The Poverello Center, and All Nations Health Center.

It's a great thing, and other local businesses like Kettlehouse Brewing, Catalyst Cafe, Alcom, and Bravo Catering also assisted in getting the face shields made over the last few months.
