Stable Craft Brewing hosting Staunton flood benefit

Stable Craft BrewingStable Craft Brewing at Hermitage Hill is announcing a special promotion to benefit Staunton restaurant flood victims on Sunday from noon-9 p.m.

The majority of the proceeds will be donated to the Byers Street Bistro for flood recovery clean-up, and the remaining balance will be given to the Staunton Creative Community fund to distribute among other affected businesses.

Guests attending the event can take home a “Social Distancing Champ” Bigfoot campfire mug with any beverage purchase for their support of the fundraising effort, while supplies last.

“Our friends at Byer Street Bistro suffered devastating loss from the flood as did other businesses in Staunton,” Stable Craft owner Craig Nargi said. “This has already been a difficult year for restaurants due to the COVID virus, but this flood has been one more blow to our friends in Staunton. During difficult times like this, it’s important we find ways we can help support our friends. We hope people will come out, enjoy some great food, beer and cider, take home a mug and raise money to help Staunton’s flood victims get back on their feet.”

Jeff Ramsey, owner of Byers St Bistro, said “We are grateful for Craig and his team at Stable Craft Brewing for offering to organize this event in support of our restaurant and the Staunton Creative Community Fund. Words can’t express our gratitude for the people of Staunton that have reached out in support.”

Stable Craft Brewings’s rural location offers acres of open farmland with multiple covered and uncovered outdoor locations to keep guests physically distant while enjoying craft beer, cider, wine, food and cornhole golf.

Several other safety measures have been implemented to provide guests with a safe and fun experience while complying with Virginia’s public health guidelines.
