Georgia brewery donates home-brewed hand sanitizer to police


ALBANY, Ga. (AP) — A brewery in one of Georgia’s communities most affected by the coronavirus is thanking police with donations of home-brewed hand sanitizer.

WALB-TV reports the Pretoria Fields Collective donated 200 bottles of the alcohol-based sanitizer to the Albany Police Department, the Dougherty County Police Department and the Dougherty County Sheriff’s Office.

The county of roughly 90,000 residents has seen rates of infection from the new virus that far exceed those in Georgia’s more densely populated communities such as metro Atlanta.

Pretoria Fields typically brews craft beer, but pivoted to producing hand sanitizer to help offset shortages during the pandemic.
