On Memorial Day, tornadoes destroyed 211 homes and 43 businesses in Montgomery County, according to emergency management officials. The tornadoes caused major damage to another 420 homes and 54 businesses. In Greene County Beavercreek over 850 houses and 100 apartment buildings were damaged. The Miami Valley has responded in this first week with water, food, clothing, and volunteering their time to help.
The need will continue and many local businesses are now posting benefit shows and ways to donate funds to recovery efforts. Here’s a list of upcoming events that will help with recovery efforts:

We have so many connections with the Dayton Beer Community that we’ve lost count.
And so when we saw the devastation that the recent tornadoes brought to the Dayton area we felt not just a desire but a responsibility to do some good and share our support for our friends and neighbors.
And while the initial response is starting to fade, there is still a tremendous growing need for support.
We’re partnering up with our friends from Warped Wing Brewing Company and The Barrel House to throw an epic party on our patio with $1 per pint and glass of wine being donated to The Dayton Foundation‘s Disaster Relief Efforts. A special shout out and thank you to Sara Stathes, Co-Owner of The Barrel House and former Cappy’s Crew Member, for getting this ball rolling and helping us to identify a non-profit partner for the event.
