Wise Men Distillery in Kentwood announced it made an $800 contribution to the Disabled American Veterans Charity.

The donation comes from a cornhole tournament hosted by Wise Men at its distillery.

The socially distanced tournament featured Wise Men Distillery’s award-winning craft cocktails and hard seltzers along with the popular Patty Matters food truck. The tourney raised $400 and Wise Men owners, two of whom are veterans, kicked in another $400.

“We recognized an opportunity from our customers who shared a desire to show support for our veterans,” said Tom Borisch, who along with Zack Van Dyke and Jason Post co-owns and co-operates Wise Men Distillery. “We thought a cornhole tournament was a great way to get people together in a socially distanced environment and have a great time while donating to the greater good and helping fellow veterans.”

Wise Men Distillery also is working on creating a winter cornhole league with the hopes of raising similar donations.

“People are looking for ways to come together and, at the same time, contribute to something they believe in and want to support,” Borisch said. “We are really looking forward to finding ways for people to help other people.”

Wise Men Distillery, which is distributed statewide by Great Lakes Wine and Spirits, opened its distillery and tasting room in spring 2019 at 4717 Broadmoor Ave. SE in Kentwood. The company offers a full line of spirits, including Apple Pie Moonshine, rum, gin, white whiskey, vodka, spiced rum, bourbon whiskey and vodka-based seltzers.
