Historic Janesville Business Receives Financial Aid
A Janesville brewery has received financial help from a large media conglomerate. The Barstool Fund, owned by Barstool Sports, recently started a foundation to assist businesses through the pandemic, and selected Gray Brewing Company as one of its recipients. WMTV reports that owners say that Barstool will commit $20,000 a month to Gray Brewing so they can pay their workers for the remainder of the pandemic. Barstool did not say how much money will be donated. Barstool Fund has so far raised more than $19 million and has helped more than 80 businesses across the country. Gray Brewing is a long time part of the Janesville community, with its inception in 1856.
