JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (WJHL) – The Johnson City Brewing Company hosted an event that gave participants the opportunity to make a difference and enjoy a cold brew.

“Pick-Up for a Pint,” as the event is being called, allowed guests to come by and trade a bit of their time collecting litter in exchange for a cold brew from the brewing company.

“What’s really cool about this is that we’re doing this here and we’re kind of the local connection. There are breweries all across the state of Tennessee that are participating in this event,” said Eric Latham from Johnson City Brewing Company.

“We just want to say thank you to the community for what they’ve done with us over the years and how they’ve helped us so this is just one more event and an opportunity to get out there and be a part of the community and help clean up a bit,” Latham added.

Latham adds that he believes that events like these are important because they allow the company not only a chance to give back to the community but provide something that people can bond over.
