The donation was made to United States Bartenders Guild National Charity Foundation’s Bartender Emergency Assistance program. The organization set up a “Virtual Tip Jar” to help bartenders not working after bars and restaurants that were ordered to close except for carryout or delivery in an effort to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

There is so much uncertainty created from this pandemic but the spreading COVID-19 virus, the service industry, and the beverage industry is being hit hard. The closure of bars, restaurants, and venues means important members of our community are no longer able to make money. It’s so important to Miller to make sure that their bartenders can go back to serving drinks once all of this is over.
