After An Exhausting Fire Season, You Can Buy A Firefighter A Beer
Fall is just around the corner, and as a result, fire season is finally winding down in Montana. It was a rough one this year, with tons of fires reported around the state, the smoke carrying over to Missoula for weeks on end, and a few extra challenges like a jet fuel shortage causing some problems.
It was exhausting, grueling work for Montana firefighters this season, and as a way to extend some thanks from the community, Highlander Beer and Draught Works Brewery in Missoula have teamed up for a pretty cool promotion.
Pint For Firefighters is set to make its return this month - basically, beginning on September 15th, you'll be able to make a donation to a fund that will allow firefighters to stop into either brewery to grab a free beer. Plus, a portion of all donations goes towards the Wildland Firefighter Foundation. The program runs until October 2nd.
In fact, you don't even need to wait until the 15th - Highlander and Draught Works are both set to take your donations now if you're ready. The fundraiser is a favorite for customers at both breweries, and gives people the opportunity to thank firefighters in some small way, even if they're not able to see them in person.
