An update on Joe…

Please see this 2016 update celebrating his legacy!

Joes Legacy

Last week was an incredibly emotional week for all concerned. In the midst of the adversity faced by the Joe’s family and friends and the Beerhouse staff, we find ourselves extremely grateful for all the support afforded us by the community, our suppliers and our loyal Beerhouse customers.

“In memory of Joe”, the Joe Kanyona Memorial Donation page, has raised R46,647 so far in support of Joe’s wife and four month-old daughter, receiving donations from as far afield as New York, London and Sydney. Thank you to all who have donated thus far – your generosity is much appreciated.

We’re also grateful to Lakeside, ApolloCBC, The Belgian Beer Co., Windermere, Woodstock and Jack Black, who have sponsored a special ‘keg wall’ at Beerhouse on Long in Joe’s honour. The keg wall and other in-store fund-raising has seen a further R55,000 raised on behalf of Joe’s family. We encourage all who would help to come down to Beerhouse and pull a pint in honour of Joe.

We will continue to support the police investigation into Joe’s death.

Please accept heartfelt thanks on behalf of Joe’s family and the Beerhouse staff for your ongoing support through this tragedy. We are deeply grateful.
