We hope it gives Delco friends and neighbors a sense of pride knowing that this collaboration is helping our local community and also want to remind customers that they can continue the fight against hunger by visiting any Wawa store now through December 26 to donate funds to Check-Out Hunger which helps 28 food banks across our entire chain.”
“This holiday season, we came together with our friends & Delco neighbors at Wawa to brew our boldest collaboration yet. In years of our Winter Reserve collaboration past we brewed approachable, 5% coffee stout. In 2021, we decided to make this Winter Reserve collaboration a 6.7% Mocha Latte Stout” said Bob Barrar, Head Brewer, 2SP Brewing Co. Each year we collaborate with Wawa, our goal is to brew something new & special for the region we call home. We hope the community enjoys it as much as we do.”
