Return of Social Distancing Champ Bigfoot & “Grab the Mug” Promotion To Raise Money for Restaurant Gutted by the Flood

WAYNESBORO, VA – (August 15, 2020) – Central Virginia’s Stable Craft Brewing at Hermitage Hill, an authentic working farm brewery and winery, is announcing a special promotion to benefit Staunton restaurant flood victims on Sunday, August 23 from 12 pm – 9 pm.  The majority of the proceeds will be donated to the Byers Street Bistro for flood recovery clean-up and the remaining balance will be given to the Staunton Creative Community fund to distribute among other affected businesses.


Guests attending the event can take home a “Social Distancing Champ” Bigfoot campfire mug with any beverage purchase for their support of the fundraising effort, while supplies last.  


According to Stable Craft owner Craig Nargi, “Our friends at Byer Street Bistro suffered devastating loss from the flood as did other businesses in Staunton.  This has already been a difficult year for restaurants due to the Covid virus but this flood has been one more blow to our friends in Staunton. During difficult times like this, it’s important we find ways we can help support our friends.  We hope people will come out, enjoy some great food, beer and cider, take home a mug and raise money to help Staunton’s flood victims get back on their feet.”


Jeff Ramsey, owner of Byers St Bistro, said “We are grateful for Craig and his team at Stable Craft Brewing for offering to organize this event in support of our restaurant and the Staunton Creative Community Fund. Words can’t express our gratitude for the people of Staunton that have reached out in support.”


Stable Craft Brewings’s rural location offers acres of open farmland with multiple covered and uncovered outdoor locations to keep guests physically distant while enjoying craft beer, cider, wine, food and cornhole golf.  Several other safety measures have been implemented to provide guests with a safe and fun experience while complying with Virginia’s Governor Northam’s guidelines.
