About riley's brewing

Riley’s has always taken a hands-on approach to problem-solving. For company president and longtime brewer, Dan Riley, that meant custom-building his own  brewery/distillery, piece by piece. So when the COVID-19 crisis hit in 2020, causing a  critical shortage of hand sanitizer among hospitals, medical workers and first responders, Dan saw the opportunity to help and once again grabbed his toolbox.  After obtaining the required license and permit, Dan converted his distillery bottling operation into a production facility for Riley’s Hand Sanitizer.  The sanitizer is formulated to meet the specifications of the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA), which requires the product to be 80% ethanol for optimum effectiveness as an antimicrobial agent. Unlike typical gel-based sanitizers, Riley’s Hand Sanitizer has an intentionally liquid viscosity as prescribed by the FDA. Dan works hard to ensure that all ingredients for his sanitizer are locally sourced,  whenever possible.  

At first, Dan produced just enough sanitizer to help with local needs, but word of the  product quickly spread. Within weeks, Dan and his team were producing 40,000 12- ounce bottles of Riley’s Hand Sanitizer every day to meet the soaring worldwide  demand. As the pandemic spread and local businesses began to lay off workers, Dan  hired dozens of additional employees to help with round-the-clock production.  If this all sounds like a lucrative operation, Dan quickly puts that notion to rest:  “We’re not about making a bunch of money. We’re about putting this in the hands of  the people who need it.”  

Throughout the production of its hand sanitizer, Riley’s has consistently donated as  much as possible to hospitals, front-line workers, first responders and other agencies  that are in greatest need of the product. Keeping the retail price low allows Riley’s to  sell more sanitizer, which in turn enables Dan to continue donating more of the  product.  

“If people buy our stuff in the stores, it empowers me to keep giving it away to first  responders,” Dan says. “It makes me comforted that we are filling a need. I get  emails every day from someone saying thank you.” Fans of Riley’s Brewing Company are also thankful: their favorite beers and spirits  have returned to full production, even as Riley’s Hand Sanitizer continues to be  produced to meet the demand.
