Stony Creek Beer donated $1,181 from their Kick The Keg to Feed Hungry Veterans Event today. Owner David Wollner collected money during his special brew campaign during November, and presented a check to Michael Beattie on Friday Dec 2nd. The money will help fund the Feed our Vets food pantry in Utica New York.

Michael Beattie, who biked 12,000 to help feed veterans in need and support Feed Our Vets veteran hunger programs was interviewed on WCSH’s 207 Show about his experience.
12,000 miles is a long way to travel.
To cover 12,000 miles, you’d have to go between Portland and Presque Isle 42 times.
At age 67, Michael Beattie set out on 12,000 mile bike ride. He circled the country on bike, raising awareness about the need to feed veterans. His work was formally recognized by Congress but little action has been taken.
He says one easy step Washington could take that would make a huge difference for hungry vets: funding our country’s many food banks.
