Philanthropy is a big part of the Lonerider culture.

This program continues its commitment to giving back to the community.
Dedicated to ending the cycle of domestic and sexual violence in Wake County, InterAct is saving lives, rebuilding lives, and securing safer futures for victims and survivors and their families. For over 40 years, Interact has been Wake County’s only provider of comprehensive services and support for victims of domestic and/or sexual violence and their families. They make a life or death difference 24/7, 365 days a year. InterAct is pleased to report that 85% to 90% of those who complete our shelter program each year go on to safe stable housing free from abuse.
“This brew celebrates the strength and courage we see every day at InterAct”, remarks Allison Strickland, interim co-executive director, and chief development officer. “We are grateful and proud to partner with Lonerider Brewing to celebrate our heroes – survivors of abuse.”
“InterAct has a very important mission. We are humbled to be allowed to help,” says CEO Sumit Vohra. “InterAct’s role in elevating the bravery in our community makes us proud. Thank you for all you do. And most importantly, a shout out to the heroes, it takes courage and you have that in spades.”
Not All Heroes Wear Crepes will be available at all three Lonerider locations on February 26th. It will be more widely available in the market following the release.
