Borderlands to give free sanitizer to community

TUCSON, Ariz. — Borderlands is honing their craft in a different way.

Instead of pouring beer, they are making and giving away hand sanitizer to El Rio Health Center and the community. This is made possible through an exclusive partnership between Borderlands Brewing Company and El Rio Health Center.

Borderlands head brewer Ayla Kapahi usually comes into the lab at their brewing facility to count yeast cells and viability for beer fermentation. “But this time around I’m looking at sanitizer concentrations and creating that for the community,” she told KGUN9.

El Rio provides all of the bulk ingredients the brewery needs to make the sanitizer. Then, Borderlands takes care of the rest, free of charge.
