Just Brew is the latest work program under the Ken Anderson Alliance.

The Ken Anderson Alliance’s mission is to provide community and opportunity for adults dealing with special needs. This week, the former Cincinnati Bengals quarterback took a big step forward with his foundation.

On Thursday, Just Brew Coffee Shop was opened by Anderson. Located just north of Cincinnati in the town of Silverton, Just Brew employs over a dozen adults with special needs, and is directly affiliated with Anderson’s non-profit organization.

“Just Brew is a warm and welcoming place,” Anderson told WLWT. “I’m thrilled to introduce it to all our Cincinnati neighbors and look forward to meeting fans of all abilities at the grand opening.”

The coffee shop becomes the latest work program under the Ken Anderson Alliance umbrella, joining 02 Urban Farms, and Celebrate Edu. Inside the store, you can also purchase Just Brew merchandise along with Ken Anderson memorabilia, with proceeds going towards the foundation.

Anderson’s Alliance is yet another reason why he’s a Cincinnati legend and a favorite to be inducted into the Bengals’ Ring of Honor later this year. For more information about Just Brew and the entire organization, visit kenandersonalliance.org.
