Inspired and grateful for the overwhelming support of the Wake Forest community during the pandemic, 615 Collabeeration is a movement by several downtown restaurants and bars to give back to the community.
Now, for a limited time, the participating establishments will offer a special edition beer & ice cream, with the proceeds going to Tri-Area Ministry Food Pantry.
Conceived by Norse Brewing Company’s co-owners, the brewery has developed the special Strawberry & Basil Ale.
In addition, Lumpy’s Ice Cream has created a Strawberry & Basil ice cream for kids and those who prefer a sweet indulgence.
Enjoy a refreshing beverage or yummy ice cream for a limited time at all participating locations, and join our commitment to band together and support those in need in Wake Forest. Giving back never tasted so good!
Tri-Area Ministry Food Pantry provides food and personal hygiene products to our community families in need. Together, we strive to Stop Hunger and Feed Hope. Founded in 1988, is a nonprofit, non-denominational, 100% volunteer run organization with a mission to provide food to the food insecure in our community. TAM is the largest Food Pantry in the Wake Forest, Youngsville, and Rolesville area serving 800 families each month. They serve approximately 2,800 people per month or 34,000 people each year. Each family who visits the Food Pantry receives a grocery bag containing different types of food, including dry goods such as cereal, rice and beans, canned goods as well as fresh fruit, vegetables, bread, milk, eggs, butter and frozen meat, as well as other items based upon availability.
Master Brewer Brad Wynn at Norse created our inaugural beer for the 615 Collabeeration. Brad created a malty base as the background for this Summer Ale, then added real strawberries as well as a hint of basil, as suggested by Serge from Bodega. The result is a light, easy-drinking Summer Ale that all beer enthusiasts will enjoy!
Buck at Lumpy’s is a magician of flavors, who thinks like a chef and creates like an artist. This Strawberry Basil creation does not disappoint! With a craveable, creamy texture and taste, the brightness of vanilla highlights the strawberries' freshness. Then a captivating, yet balanced basil flavor dances in quickly and is finished with buttery notes that bring this delicious treat together. A refreshing blend that will keep you coming back for more!
To commemorate our inaugural year we've created these fabulous T-shirts. Pick one up at participating locations and as with all 615 purchases, a portion of the proceeds will go to benefit the Tri-Area Ministry Food Pantry. Show your Wake Forest Pride with a 615 T-shirt!
