The Hops Company and Two Roads will donate $1 from the sale of each Two Roads pint of beer to the Helping Heroes Fly (www.helpingheroesfly.com) charity which helps reunite enlisted, active military men and women with their families for the holidays.
The night will feature:
Ugly Holiday Outfit Competition (9pm)
Unwrap the Present game

Raffles for Two Roads Prizes
Last year’s event raised over $1,200 for Helping Heroes Fly and The Hops Company hopes to exceed that amount this year.
Umberto Morale, owner of The Hops Company said, “The Hops Company is always looking for ways to give back to the community. We are so happy to be able to contribute to Helping Heroes Fly and bring home members of our military for the holidays. What a better way to give back to others, than to bring families together.”
