Local breweries team up on behalf of a friend of the industry


I think we’re all familiar with the saying: “Well, it’s not like it’s brain surgery or anything.” It’s meant to suggest that something is easy or simple. Thing is, sometimes it is exactly like brain surgery. No one is more familiar with that fact than Laurel, one of the owners at Ounces, a family-friendly taproom and beer garden in West Seattle. She was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor and will soon face brain surgery.

Laurel and her bar are fiercely loyal to local beer and, in turn, local breweries are loyal to her. Ounces is teaming up with 15 local breweries to raise funds for the American Brain Tumor Association (or ABTA). On Thursday, March 28th each brewery will tap a certain beer at its taproom for the cause, donating $1 for each pint sold. Also, at Ounces, they will do the same, tapping into a collection of beers.

Keep an eye on the Ounces Facebook page for more info. The exact taplist is forthcoming.
