A local brewery is collaborating with the Grand Rapids Fire Department on a special brew that benefits burn victims.

New Holland Brewing’s Knickerbocker and the GRFD Bridge Street Fire Station have crafted a beer to support the Great Lakes Burn Camp.

Hose ‘er Down, named by the Bridge Street Fire Station, is a red pale ale described as “an easy-drinking pale ale with balanced, hop-forward flavor and a fiery red hue.”

This collaboration will benefit the Great Lakes Burn Camp, which promotes healing, self-confidence and general well-being for children with burn injuries.

The camp operates entirely on donations and fundraisers. These donations allow for a week of summer camp and a four-day winter camp at no expense to parents.

The Knickerbocker will host a launch party for the brew tomorrow.

One dollar from every Hose ‘er Down sold on tap and 10 percent of food sales will go toward Great Lakes Burn Camp. Attendees will also have the opportunity to meet local firefighters and learn more about the camp.

Established in 1997, New Holland Brewing sells its beers and spirits in four countries.

The company brews and distills in three locations in Holland and Grand Rapids.
