A common theme among my posts this year will be to share more information about any beer drinking opportunity where the mere act of imbibing a brew means helping out someone else.
Another such opportunity has presented itself this week down at the Biergarten on the campus of Anheuser-Busch.
Last November, on Veterans Day, Anheuser-Busch held a Cheers to the Heroes Brewing Competition that consisted of four teams comprised of Anheuser-Busch employees as well as two local teams who have served in the military or as a first responder.
The St. Louis Fire Department team won and their limited-edition beer, the Backdraft Stout, will be available at the Biergarten for visitors to enjoy right now. Beer will pour on tap for as long as it lasts.
All proceeds from the beer will go to The Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS). The charity was chosen by the St. Louis Fire Department team.
