I really can’t thank the folks in the craft beer community enough for rallying together with some awesome fundraising events to help me with my medical bills. The idea is not to only reach out for help from y’all but to make it worth while with some kick-ass events that people would be stoked to attend regardless of my needs. In November there are three killer beer events to check out. BridgePort Brewery is helping by making the release of their new “Mettle & Mash” series brew a highlight for me this month. That event happens on November 21 and BridgePort Brewery will kindly donate all proceeds of this new Imperial Red IPA to my cause, as well as 20% of all food sales that day. My friend Molly of R-West (PR company who works with BridgePort) over there has been a huge force is facilitating this and I really can’t thank her and the whole Gambrinus family enough!
On November 29, the day after Thanksgiving Day, Brewpublic is helping to organize the 3rd annual Black Friday event at The Green Dragon which features hoppy black brews often referred to as Black IPAs or Cascadian Dark Ales around these parts. This year, my friend Rob Brewer of Buckman Botanical Brewing and the Rogue Ales crew are helping by turning this event into a fundraiser for my huge medical debt racked up from ongoing treatment and care of an inoperable brain tumor. Lots of breweries have donated beers to help raise even more money to put a dent in my huge bills (note: don’t get sick or hurt of you are and American without insurance). Look for more information coming on all of these events soon. They will all be awesome and I plan on attending each one of them!
Here’s some details from my friends Saraveza about the Rare Beer Event coming up and how you can contribute by donating or simply just quaffing: Read More…
