SALT LAKE CITY — Templin Family Brewing is teaming up with breweries all over the world, in a global effort to help people affected by COVID-19.

“We're a family business and they put everything on the line," general manager Brittany Watt said.

With new regulations in place due to the coronavirus pandemic, employees who normally rely on tips aren’t making any money.

"I’ve been in hospitality for 15 years," Watt said. "I feel very grateful for the position that I’m in now but what I'm seeing is devastating.”

While the bar at TF Brewing is closed, employees are still hard at work producing beers to sell in their store.

One of those beers is a new one, called, "All Together."

"It emphasizes more of like a hop aromatic, it’s kind of a juicy profile that hops can really bring out," Watt said.

The recipe was created by a brewery in Brooklyn, New York and now breweries all over the world will be making it and selling it with the profits going to help people affected by COVID-19.

“The beer is called 'All Together,' and I think with their collaboration efforts all the breweries in the world can jump on this one single label and it’ll be recognizable all over the world," said TF Brewing owner, Kevin Templin.

TF Brewing has decided to give 100 percent of the proceeds to it’s employees.

"These are all cash employees, they work basically and live off of tips," Templin said. "And so anything we can do to help them pay their bills or rent or medical stuff we want to do it, kind of a family values you know.”

The brewing process started Friday and "All Together" should be available in a couple of weeks.
