To Habitat for Humanity of St. Vrain Valley, it’s “The House That Beer Built.”

By Lisa Truesdale

To Vicki Reyes and her young daughter, it will simply be “home.”

For their latest project, Habitat teamed up with nine local breweries to help build a new home in Longmont for the Reyes family. The participating breweries—Grossen Bart, Industrial Revolution, Left Hand, Longs Peak Pub & Taphouse, Oskar Blues, Shoes & Brews, SKEYE, Wibby and 300 Suns—kicked off the campaign with a fundraising event in March, and will continue to hold special events all summer to continue raising funds. The home is scheduled for completion by December.

In a press release about the project, Reyes said she is excited to own her own home. “It allows my daughter to have a home, a safe neighborhood, a room to herself, and the ability to create friendships.”
