Many beer enthusiasts ride bicycles — whether for commuting, exercise, or just for fun. In Portland, Christian beer enthusiasts Jenna Forstom & Emily Daman have seen a few too many cyclists struggling to find ways to carry their growlers from breweries or bottle shops, to their final destinations. Hop Hands mission is to deliver quality beer transportation products, which encourage environmentally friendly choices and help give back to the community. Hop Hands is a simple growler carrying devices that straps onto a bike, or can be carried by hand.
I was able to sit down with creators Jenna & Emily to talk with them about their project and their desire to give back to the community through what I have named “volun-beering.” They created this project as a way for their volunteering to come together with their love of beer and their Christian faith. These women are living out the Gospel daily. They embody what Pope Francis is calling us to do.
