Hello Friends,
We won't deny it: we like good beer almost as much as we like good jazz.  If you do, too--or even if you just like to enjoy a pleasant spot with friends on a sunny summer afternoon--then here's one more reason to get out to Blue Lake and drop into the Mad River Brewing Company Tasting Room: on Wednesday, July 10th, MRBC's "Pints for Non-Profits" program will benefit your favorite local jazz-centric non-profit.  $1 for every glass of beer sold at the Tasting Room that day will go into our coffers and help support our 2013-14 season of concerts and workshops.
Back in 2009, Mad River Brewing inaugurated "Pints for Non-Profits," which supports a different local non-profit organization each month (usually on the first Wednesday).  In addition to the special consideration on the 10th, we'll be flying our banner there throughout the month of July, and the brewery will keep our literature on hand and have a donation box out to accommodate your generosity for the entire month, too.
The Wandering Weenie Wagon will roll up to the patio/beer garden around 5:00 or 5:30, serving gourmet hot dogs, sausages, soups, and chili.  We're rounding up some great local players to provide music from 6:00 to 8:30.  The Tasting Room itself is open from 1:00 to 9:00, and it's located at 101 Taylor Way, in the industrial park off Hatchery Road in Blue Lake.  (And just so you know: the Tasting Room and patio/beer garden are family-friendly!)
We're elated to be part of this brilliant community-minded program, and we thank MRBC for running it--and for making such great beer.  A good turnout will put us in a healthy position as we start up our new season in September.  So please: tell your friends and neighbors, bring a designated driver, and come join us at the Mad River Brewing Co. Tasting Room on Wednesday, July 10th.  Again: $1 for every glass of beer sold at the Tasting Room that day will help support our 2013-14 season.
