Payette Busted Wagon Holiday IPA to be released with proceeds going to charity

By Sheila Francis

(Boise, ID) – Payette Brewing will release Busted Wagon Holiday IPA on December 4th and 100% of proceeds from sales will be donated to Micro Enterprise Training and Assistance (META). META will use the funds to grow their revolving loan fund to help underserved groups gain access to financing to start, strengthen or expand their businesses.

META was one of twenty area nonprofits that applied for Busted Wagon this year and was selected for their dedication to improving the local business community, especially for those who may face added difficulties. As a relatively new business, Payette Brewing is familiar with the process of starting and growing a business and feel the proceeds from this beer will help more individuals realize their dream of owning a small business.

The Busted Wagon Holiday IPA is a beautiful amber-colored ale with distinct hop flavors and a pleasant malt presence. It will pair nicely with spicy foods, enhancing the fiery qualities of the food as well as the hop flavors of the brew.

The first tapping of Busted Wagon will occur at Payette Brewing’s tasting room Saturday Dec 1st at 5pm. The brew will be available at other bars and restaurants beginning Dec 4th. The list of locations will be available December 4th on
