Casks for a Cause- Beans and Brews Festival/Bridge of Hope
August 16 @ 4:00 pm - 11:00 pm
For August’s Cask for a Cause, we will be hosting the 2nd annual Beans & Brews Festival to benefit Bridge of Hope: Harrisonburg – Rockingham! The Beans & Brews Festival was created last year to raise funds towards training and equipping local Christian faith communities to respond to homelessness in practical, tangible, and neighboring ways.
The mission of Bridge of Hope is to end and prevent homelessness for single parents and children with the help of trained mentoring groups within congregations. Single parents achieve permanent housing and financial self-sufficiency through employment and attain stability and enhanced self-esteem through ongoing mentoring friendships.
The Beans & Brews Festival is designed to bring local homebrewers, home cooks, and the community together for an amazing evening! This is done through…
1. The IPA challenge competition by the Harrisonburg Homebrewers at The Friendly Fermenter:
-On May 20, homebrewers from around the area submitted their best IPA with Robert Lam taking the win! His IPA, Summer Daze, will be brewed on our pilot system and will be tapped on August 16 for the Casks for a Cause/Beans & Brews event!!
2. Beans & Brews Festival Chili Cook-off Judging at our taproom:
-Calling all local home cooks! We are looking for your best chili to be judged by 5 local judges. The winning chili will be served during the Casks for a Cause/Beans & Brews event.
