The Brewmaster’s Taproom Is Hosting A BBQ To Benefit Rez Dog Rescue

One of the things that many people enjoy about the local craft beer scene is that the majority of craft breweries and craft beer bars (at least those that don’t serve their own food) are dog-friendly.  That means we’re free to bring our well-behaved, furry, four-legged family members along with us when we visit many of our favorite craft beer spots.

Sadly, there are still too many dogs out there who are in desperate need of help, and that’s where rescue organizations like Rez Dog Rescue come in.  With a focus on the Yakama Nation Indian Reservation and Yakima County in-general, Rez Dog Rescue does all they can to help abused, injured and unwanted dogs and cats and help them find their furever homes.  To help them in their mission, The Brewmaster’s Taproom in Renton is hosting a BBQ fundraiser during Seattle Beer Week, with 100% of the proceeds going to benefit Rez Dog Rescue.

Two Beers Partners With Lifelong To Create Lifelong Lager

I never cease to be amazed at how much the Seattle craft beer community does for charity.  Breweries, craft beer bars and, of course, all of us craft beer lovers can always get behind helping those in need.  Of course, it’s nice when providing that help also gives us the added bonus of even more great craft beer to drink.

Two Beers Brewing Company (CBM Sponsor) is one of those breweries that loves to give back.  They have teamed up with Lifelong, a leader in the fight against HIV/AIDS since 1983, to create Lifelong Lager, which will benefit Lifelong’s food program, Chicken Soup Brigade – providing nutritious meals in Washington to those living with serious illnesses like HIV, AIDS and cancer.

There will be a special preview event for Lifelong Lager at Two Beers Brewing’s tasting room, The Woods, on Friday, April 22.  Then, Lifelong Lager will be tapped at more than 150 restaurants throughout Western Washington on Thursday, April 28, supporting Lifelong’s Dining Out for Life event. For every keg sold, Lifelong will receive a $50 donation to help fund the Chicken Soup Brigade.

The 2015 Ravenmaster’s Charity Golf Tournament Is Almost Here

BRWRGolf2015

I don’t know about you, but I’m not much of a golfer.  I tried, years ago during my college days.  I wasn’t horrible.  I just couldn’t quite get the knack of it.  I’m not sure I ever broke a score of 100, but I came close once or twice.  I plan to start playing again in the next few years.  Hopefully I’ll do a bit better this time.

Whether you’re nearly a pro or just a duffer like me, when  you’re golfing for charity, it doesn’t really matter how good you are.  It’s all about just having some fun and helping those in need.  So, set to return on Friday, September 25th is the Ravenmaster’s Charity Golf Tournament, hosted by Black Raven Brewing Company (CBM Sponsor).  This year’s tournament will benefit Attain Housing: “Bringing our community together to partner with homeless families by providing affordable housing and empowering them with practical case management and hope.”
