What’s better than having a nice, cold thirst-quencher at the end of a long hot day? What if the money you spent on that beer went to those in need? There’s nothing better!

A new Aussie beer has launched and $2.00 from every case will be donated to the charity ‘GIVIT’ to help raise much needed funds and equipment for those living in drought-affected communities.

Brewed in Goulburn, the refreshing ‘Hughie’ lager is made from 100 per cent Australian-grown hops and malt.

So, why Hughie? The name is derived from the term “Send it down Hughie” which was a common Aussie bushman’s cry for rain at the turn of the 20th century.

While we might be getting a lot of rain in our cities now, it takes years for a drought-affected community to recover both economically and emotionally. Many of these communities were even dealt with the double-whammy of drought followed by bushfires.

“Being able to replace a water tank, men a fence or purchase a week’s supply of groceries at the local store can make a significant positive contribution to a family dealing with drought,” says Scott Barrett, GIVIT’s NSW Manager.

Hughie is available from Dan Murphy’s and BWS.
