Drinkin’ For A Cause | 2nd Annual Hops for Heroes

We’re on a mission to shine a light on all the good brewers around the St. Louis region who are using their beer and time to help out our community.

Drinkin’ For A Cause – is us on the lookout for any event, beer release or genuine “good idea” that brings beer and beer lovers together for a good cause.  If you know of an event, please post the information on our Facebook page.

Earlier this month I was flying home from Washington D.C. on Southwest Airlines and I was lucky enough to be accompanied by more than a dozen American heroes.  My flight home was an Honor Flight, with more than two dozen World War II and Korean War Veterans returning home after spending a day in our nation’s capital seeing the memorials dedicated to them and their comrades.  If you have never seen an honor flight in person, it is quite something to behold.

Getting these veterans to Washington D.C. and back is quite a task, and the good folks at Greater St. Louis Honor Flight depend on all of us to help out. And what better way to raise money than pouring good beer.

Hops for Heroes

Saturday, Nov. 18, 2017, from 1 – 5 p.m.

The 2nd annual craft beer festival at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Edwardsville. Proceeds from this event will go to Greater St. Louis Honor Flight to purchase an Honor Flight for one or more U.S Military Veterans to visit all of the war memorials in Washington, DC!

Tickets are $25 per person and must be purchased online. Price includes tastings from all the brewers, commemorative souvenir tasting glass and live music by Lanny and Julie (and Alan). This event will be held indoors, so only 125 tickets will be sold. Get yours soon!

Food will be available for purchase, including pulled pork, brats, pretzels and sides. The Knights of Columbus bar will open after the beerfest for additional purchases.

Parking will be available both in the parking lot and in the grassy field behind the K of C Hall. Carpooling or Uber are encouraged.

Here the local breweries that will be pouring, so take advantage and help a hero.
