Past Events › Cask For A Cause
We are always looking for unique opportunities to give back to the community that has shown us so much support.
Since opening our tasting room, we have offered a new cask-style beer every Friday. This soon evolved into Cask for A Cause,
a monthly charity event that allows us to work with local non-profit organizations to create a one-time-only exclusive brew,
offered on the 3rd Friday of the month.
All proceeds from the sale of the cask beers go directly to that month’s charity.
We have partnered with some very generous and talented to parties to design, print, and frame 2 posters for each.
One of these remains on the brewery wall, while the other is auctioned off to further support the charity.
Join us for our monthly Cask for a Cause, this month benefiting the Spitzer Art Center. We will be tapping a special cask made in conjunction with the folks from Spitzer and all proceeds will go to the cause in addition to the money earned from auctioning off the framed event poster. Jeff Gorman will be playing live starting around 5:30 and Wing It will be outside cooking some great food.Find out more »
