COLTS NECK, NJ: They say it takes a village to raise a child, and that love makes a family. Adopting a child is a beautiful expression of love. However, the adoption journey is often full of twists and turns, and in most cases, a very expensive one. 

Co-founder of Source Brewing, located in Colts Neck, NJ, Phil Petracca commented, "We are all like a big family here at Source Brewing, and one of our employees, who has been with us since the beginning, Eric Dengelegi and his wife Amy, will soon welcome their adopted baby daughter. We are all excited for them, and realize how expensive the adoption journey is. We decided to do something to help alleviate the financial burden and celebrate the special occasion.  Friday morning one of our new beers called 'It Takes a Village', went on sale, with a portion of the proceeds dedicated for the family."

TAPinto spoke with Eric Dengelegi about his journey to adopt, "Adoption is something that my wife Amy and I always wanted to pursue regardless if we could have children biologically or not. We are parents to our son Aiden who unfortunately passed away three years ago, only one day after birth due to a genetic complication. Naturally, we then explored all the other options, and we've been on this adoption journey for the last two years.  We are ecstatic that we were given this opportunity to create the IPA. The owners and the team at Source Brewing could not be more supportive in every way. We are eternally grateful to them for everything." 

According to Source, "It Takes A Village” Milkshake IPA is loaded with protein rich flaked oats and wheat along with a touch of milk sugar to give it a super soft, pillowy mouthfeel. Hops were added post-boil and in the fermenter to lend their fruity aromas and flavors and juicy character as opposed to hop bitterness. The cans sold out Friday, but the good news is that "It Takes a Village" will be available on tap through the weekend and until supplies last!

"We conditioned this tasty treat on blood peach, pink guava, and mango post fermentation to complement the intense tropical and stone fruit dry hop aromatics and also added some Madagascar vanilla to enhance the creamy “milkshake” mouthfeel of this easy drinking brew. We get notes of juicy red peaches, guava smoothie, mango sticky rice, and vanilla peach swirl soft serve ice cream. Stop by this weekend and raise your glass to Eric and Amy and baby on the way!"   So, visit family friendly Sourch Brewing this weekend, lift your glass and toast the family!
