Sonoma Pride Fundraiser - NOON - CASH ONLY

In October, the most destructive and deadly wildfires California has ever faced ripped through Sonoma, Lake and Napa Counties, displacing more than 100,000 residents, killing dozens of people, and destroying thousands of homes and businesses.  California brewers Russian River Brewing Co. and Firestone Walker Brewing Company responded by reviving their super-limited collaboration beer, STiVO Pils, to help raise money for the King Ridge Foundation and victims of the wildfires. 

We have elected to use our allocated sixtel of STiVO Pils, as well as 24 other rare and fascinating beers on draft, to raise money for victims of the California wildfires. On Saturday, December 2 at NOON, we will open with a mind-boggling draft list, with 100% of all listed prices benefiting the King Ridge Foundation.  That means if we charge $10 for a beer, all ten dollars go directly to our nonprofit partner.  You can learn more about the King Ridge Foundation here. No "portion of proceeds" BS here.  Check out the draft list, below, and stay tuned for more additions.  

This 100% to charity fundraiser is, as always, CASH ONLY.  We will attempt to keep our ATM stocked, but Pros Know: Bring CASH.
