Saturday, Jan. 23rd from 1:00-11:00 pm – Flint Disaster Relief Fundraiser at Blank Slate Brewing
From their Facebook event page: “Water is THE most important raw material we use as brewers. We are blessed with top notch drinking water here in Cincinnati and it just so happens to make great beer too. Imagine if the water you were drinking (and everything made from it) was rendered toxic due to cost cutting efforts by your friendly local government. Not cool. This is exactly what has happened in Flint Michigan. People in that community currently don’t have access to safe drinking water from their municipal system and to us that is a real shame. It has been bugging us so much that we decided we need to do something to help.
This Saturday, January 23rd, BLANK SLATE BREWING COMPANY will be donating 20% of all beverage sales to the Flint Child Health and Development Fund to aid in immediate disaster relief for those affected by the water crisis in Flint, Michigan. We will also be accepting cash donations as part of the contributions.”

That means a $3 donation for every pint purchased. They will also have some amazing silent auction items, donation boxes, split the pot, t-shirts available for purchase, and more.

Beer Events at Halfcut, Dickmann’s & Fifty West

Certain weeks are just full of beer events. And when Halloween falls on a Friday, you can count on lots of beer events happening. Here are a few more that we found out about after our Monday This Week in Beer post was published.

• Halfcut is hosting a “Nightmare Before Christmas” event tonight (Tuesday, October 28th) starting at 6:00 pm. They will be tapping Great Lakes Christmas Ale, Nosferatu & Edmund Fitzgerald. You can enjoy candy beer pairings and costumes are encouraged. Oh, and there will be Christmas music too.

• Bad Tom Smith Brewing is celebrating their expansion into Northern Kentucky tomorrow (Wednesday, October 29th) with a launch party at Dickmann’s Café in Fort Wright, Kentucky. Pints are $4 and half pints are available for just $2.

• We had this one on This Week in Beer beer events post yesterday, but we just got more information on it. On Thursday, October 30th, the ladies of Fifty West Brewing Company will be showing off their brewing skills at the Witches Brew Dinner at Fifty West in support of Breast Cancer Awareness. The Witch Brewers (seen below) have created two small-batch, Halloween-themed beers: Badass WeatherWax Wheat with hints of orange, lemon zest, clove, and golden wheat plus pumpkin-spice-latte stout named Rid The Beast Black. The beers will be paired with a 4-course dinner for $25.00 per person starting at 4:00 pm. 10% of the Witches Brew Dinner proceeds will go to Making Strides, an American Cancer Society organization for Breast Cancer Research and Awareness. The number of dinners available will be limited due to the amount of Witches Brew beer and will be presented as an option alongside the normal dinner menu.
