THE GUINNESS Open Gate Brewery in Baltimore has found a unique way to give something back to the community during the coronavirus pandemic.
With the brewery currently closed as part of the nationwide lockdown measures introduced in the US, staff have been busy giving something back to those most affected.
In an incredible gesture of support to the local community, the brewery has been donating 500 loaves of their “Brewers Bread” every week to the local Maryland Food Bank.
We can't pour beer right now, but we can bake bread. We’re saying thank you to the Baltimore community that has welcomed us and our Open Gate Brewery with open arms by donating 500 loaves of our Brewers Bread every week to the @MDFoodBank. pic.twitter.com/9S2WXdbsx0

The bread has been brewed using ingredients sourced from within the brewery.
Writing on Twitter, Guinness said:
“We’re saying thank you to the Baltimore community that has welcomed our Open Gate Brewery with open arms by donating 500 loaves of our Brewers Bread every week to the Maryland Food Bank.”
The Maryland Food Bank is a non-profit organisation leading the movement to end hunger in Maryland.
They have an extensive network of community and organisational partners across the state that distribute food to those in need.
In the meantime, Guinness fans in the US can keep spirits up by getting a few bottles of the black stuff delivered to their door.
