This weekend drink for a cause and not just because

This weekend (tonight and tomorrow) offers you two excellent reasons to drink beer. Tonight is the Water 1sr Beer Second benefit on Lake Union and tomorrow is a cancer benefit at the Seattle Beer Aurthority. Details about both events are below.

I’m not the kind of guy who needs much of a reason, but it sure is nice when I can go out and enjoy a barley-pop and know I’m supporting a worthy cause.

Tonight – We invite you to attend the 5th Annual Water 1st Beer Second fundraiser. Read our original post about this event. This is a casual and affordable affair. Beer will be provided by  Pike, Hale’s, Two Beers, Georgetown, and Mac and Jack’s. (They’ll be serving wine as well.) Along with food, beer and live music, they will be raffling off a trip to Hawaii. Naval Reserve Building on Lake Union (“The Armory”), Friday, March 5, 2010.  7:00 p.m.

Tomorrow – The Beer Authority is partnering with Elysian Brewing and Team in Training to raise money to help fight blood cancers this Saturday, March 6th. All day long at The Beer Authority (noon-9pm) we will be pouring pints of Elysian Immortal IPA for $5.50 and filling growlers for $20 with all the proceeds going to Team in Training. This is an easy, effective and very tasty way to help out people who are fighting these deadly diseases- so stop on in and have a pint. It may be the most important beer you buy all year!
