Sleepy Eye Brewing Co. Joins Down Syndrome Awareness Project
SLEEPY EYE, Minnesota (KEYC) – The TRI-21 project supports people with Down’s syndrome and increases support for GiGi’s Playhouse. Sleepy Eye Brewing Company is one of the 22 breweries that are part of the group.
Owner Adam Armbruster joined us shortly after hearing about it. Her fourth child, Celia, was born with Down syndrome in November 2020.
To commemorate its joining the project, Sleepy Eye Brewing Company announced a TRI-21 beer, a New England Double IPA beer in a can that can feature Ambruster and his daughter.
“Reflecting a desire at all levels of families with children with Down’s Syndrome is kind of a feeling of acceptance,” Armbruster said. “Getting this diagnosis isn’t bad news, it’s different news. It is not something that you expect or plan, but it is an absolute blessing.
The beer will be officially drawn this weekend and available for purchase tomorrow. It will be available both on tap and in crowlers, with part of the proceeds going to GiGi’s Playhouse.
