A new beer has hit the market and a portion of profits will be donated to help raise much-needed funds for those living in drought-affected communities.
Hughie Beer has launched and $2 from every case will be donated to the charity GIVIT.
One lucky recipient has been the Adelong Men's Shed who have been working hard to make hand-crafted cheese boards using rescued wood from the Sugar Pine Forest.
Since they started making the cheese boards, the Men's Shed and its female equivalent, the Hen's Shed, have received 50 orders for a total of 175 boards.
The money from the cheese board sales will be bolstered by the money raised from the sales of Hughie Beer and will go towards important maintenance and restoration work on the Men's Shed including new paint and a wood-burning stove to keep members warm and cosy during the winter time.
Scott Barrett, NSW manager, GIVIT said that they were incredibly grateful to be able to help out wherever possible.
"Since late 2018 we have spent more than $600,000 in donated relief funds providing over 140,000 items purchased in local communities to help 12,000 people across regional NSW affected by drought and bushfires," he said.

"Being able to replace a water tank, mend a fence or purchase a week's supply of groceries at the local store can make a significant positive contribution to a family.
"Making sure a community hub such as the Men's Shed is comfortable and well-maintained, is extremely important for the health and wellbeing of its members and their families."
Brewed in Goulburn Hughie Beer's name is derived from the term "Send it down Hughie", which was a common Aussie bushman's cry for rain.
