For a limited time, Thompson Island Brewing Co. will include Little Beauties, the brewery’s homemade sanitizer made by brewmaster Jimmy Valm, with each takeout order.

Online ordering and payment and contactless curbside delivery are recommended.

“According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, keeping your hands clean is an excellent way to curb the spread of COVID-19,” said Scott Kammerer, president of SoDel Concepts, which has 12 restaurants in southern Delaware. “Hand sanitizer can be hard to find during this crisis. Since we have the right facilities, we decided to make our own.”

Breweries must have a sterile environment to make a good craft beer, explained Valm, who is using a recipe provided by the World Health Organization.

“Like most breweries, we use high-proof isopropyl alcohol for sanitizing surfaces, and that’s a primary ingredient in hand sanitizer,” he said.

Little Beauties will be available as long as supplies last.
