While your at it, show this hometown favorite your love by signing this petition –
Recognizing the importance of the success of local businesses in our community, we can help reinvigorate the Iron City Brewery. On an individual level, I will make more of an effort to drink Iron City beer and support my hometown brewery. I will also take the necessary steps to encourage my family, friends, and random people I meet, to support this local business. I am fully aware that my actions have a resounding effect, and can make a difference.
Yes, you too can make a difference. Enjoy your Irish City Beer this weekend. See you at the parade!
