STERLING, Va. — Liquor stores across the DMV have been booming during this self-isolation spring, and two breweries in Virginia are determined to give back. 

Beltway Brewing in Sterling collaborated with Water's End Brewery to release a new IPA called the "PPE." 

The new 6.4% beer features grapefruit, citrus, resin and peach tones and came to fruition as a way to give back to first responders and medical workers in the area. The best part? Six dollars of every six-pack sold -- which retails at $18 -- goes straight to the INOVA COVID-19 Emergency Preparedness Fund, meaning your beverage is benefitting those who need it. The two breweries have already forwarded $3,000 from the pre-ordered beer fund to the INOVA group. You can pre-order and purchase the new PPE beer online now at either Beltway Brewing or Water's End Brewery's websites, and the beer itself will be released Saturday, April 25.

Water's End Brewery is also doing a drive-thru pick-up option on April 25.

"We raise a can in salute to those risking their own health for the common good," the beer's website said. "Cheers!"
