Raise your glass and grab a hammer… It’s time to support Tacoma/Pierce County Habitat for Humanity, with the region’s first House that Beer Built.
Together Olympic Eagle Distributing and Constellation Brands are rallying partners and beer loving friends to support the construction of this special home. Construction activities are planned for August – February.

Emma feels like she’s always known about Habitat for Humanity, but it was while watching a YouTube video last year that a Habitat for Humanity ad popped up and reminded her about the program. She decided to apply and was accepted into the program in November.
Emma and her two boys – ages 7 and 8 – have been living with her mom for the last four years. Prior to that she had an apartment in Renton, but the rent kept increasing. “I didn’t make enough to be able to rent an apartment,” says Emma. “My credit was great, but I didn’t have enough income.”
While Emma has been working on her sweat equity hours, she hasn’t yet told her boys they will soon have a home of their own. “I’m waiting until I get the key to surprise them.”
But Emma does have a message for the sponsors of her future home. “On behalf of my boys and I, I would like to say THANK YOU to Olympic Eagle Distribution and Constellation Brands. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Because of your generous sponsorship, I can have peace of mind knowing that my kids will finally have stable housing – a place that they’ll grow and dream BIG.”
