City Wide, more than just a beer.
In April of 2016, we launched City Wide, an American Pale Ale, into the St. Louis market which is dedicated to fostering the city of St. Louis. $1 per case sold is donated to a local non-profit or organization. Each year 4 Hands picks 4 organizations that cover a specific niche that contributes to our city in a unique way to be a quarterly recipient. Throughout each recipient’s quarter, we collaborate on events and projects digging deeper into their mission. In March of 2017, we added a City Wide Pils to the program. We partner up with local work-space incubators giving us the opportunity to provide financial aid to local creative & innovative projects. Since the program was launched in April 2016 4 Hands Brewing Co. has contributed over $175k to programs in the city of St. Louis.
In 2019 City Wide went state-wide! This gives us the opportunity to make an impact within areas of Missouri that are also able now to purchase our City Wide cans. So, we have partnered up with organizations in Columbia, Springfield and Kansas City, Missouri. We love giving our consumers the ability to support their local communities with the purchase of a beer!

The Ollie Hinkle Heart Foundation is dedicated to lessening the impact of congenital heart disease through love, awareness, and the furtherance of pediatric heart research.

In its efforts to improve upon this, the Foundation has raised more than $500,000 in funds, which have had far-reaching impact, such as funding promising pediatric-focused heart research, but also in very personal and tailored ways as it provides financial assistance to heart families throughout metro St. Louis.
