LEES SUMMIT, Mo. — A Lee’s Summit graphics company has come up with a clever way to raise money for small breweries struggling due to the coronavirus shut down.
Dyer Oil Graphics created a t-shirt design for a fictional brewery called “The Quarantine Brewery and Taphouse.”
Owner Ron Dyer said the whole thing started off as a joke.
“We were just toying around one day about how no one can go out to their favorite craft brewery anymore,” he said. “Since we’re here in downtown Lee’s Summit, a lot of our clients are breweries in Lee’s Summit. So we were just joking that everybody was going to their new craft brewery, their quarantine brewery and taphouse.”
So far, t-shirt sales have raised over $700 for Lee’s Summit Social Services and the KC Hospitality Support Initiative.
