Small businesses and non-profits are especially hard hit during the coronavirus outbreak. We get it! Baltimore Fishbowl is a small business, too. To help small businesses and non-profits, we will provide regular updates to let you know how they are coping.
Chesapeake Beverage has a long history of supporting communities and employees – and during this uncertain time is no different. That is why the company recently partnered with Patapsco Distilling Co. and are using their supply and logistics network to begin producing and distributing bottles of hand sanitizer in order to give back to the community.
This process is all pretty new to Chesapeake Beverage. However, after speaking with the owner of Patapsco Distilling Co., Scott Jendrek, he explained the process. Chesapeake Beverage will donate excess beer. This beer will be distilled to get to 190 proof and then combined with hydrogen peroxide and other ingredients to make hand sanitizer.
Though it takes a few days to distill and create the batch of hand sanitizer, once completed, it will be donated to first responders in Howard County, as well as a few other counties in the area. They have even received an order to create some for the White House.
