Sales of Lonerider Stout to Benefit InterAct

​If you needed a good excuse to try a new beer, Lonerider Brewing Company has just the thing. A portion of the proceeds from Lonerider’s new pastry stout, Not All Heroes Wear Crepes, will benefit InterAct, a nonprofit dedicated to ending the cycle of domestic violence in Wake County.

A portion of the proceeds of Not All Heroes Wear Crepes will benefit InterAct.

First in Lonerider’s Brew It Forward series, Not All Heroes Wear Crepes is brewed with cocoa nibs and habanero. It will be available at all three Lonerider locations on Friday, Feb. 26, and more widely in the market after then.

“This brew celebrates the strength and courage we see every day at InterAct,” said Allison Strickland, interim co-executive director with the nonprofit. “We are grateful and proud to partner with Lonerider Brewing to celebrate our heroes – survivors of abuse.”

Over the last 12 years, Lonerider has raised over $750,000 in financial support as well as providing products and services to a number of nonprofit organizations throughout the Triangle. This new effort continues the brewing company’s commitment to giving back to the community.

For over 40 years, Interact has been Wake County’s only provider of comprehensive services and support for victims of domestic and/or sexual violence and their families. InterAct reports that 85% to 90% of those who complete the nonprofit’s shelter program each year go on to safe stable housing.

“InterAct has a very important mission. We are humbled to be allowed to help,” said Sumit Vohra, Lonerider CEO. “InterAct’s role in elevating the bravery in our community makes us proud. Thank you for all you do. And most importantly, a shout out to the heroes, it takes courage and you have that in spades.”

InterAct brings together three dedicated crisis lines, law enforcement, legal services, group and individual counseling, case management, court advocacy, community education, and North Carolina’s first and still only community-based sexual assault forensic examination center (InterAct’s Solace Center) – all under one roof. InterAct also provides Wake County’s only emergency shelter program for women and children fleeing domestic and/or sexual abuse.
