Flying Saucer Hosts Sierra Nevada’s Ken Grossman Wed. Apr. 24
Craft Beer Pioneer to Thank Houston for Camp Fire Relief Fund Support
Cold fronts in April are admittedly pretty crazy, but good God, what they’re doing for our weather is absolutely delicious. There’s going to be a string of beer events for the next two weeks from 11 Below’s first DIPA release tomorrow, to the Wild West Brew Fest next weekend, and somewhere in between there, Sierra Nevada’s Ken Grossman is coming to town for a victory lap of sorts.
In case you’ve been living under a rock for the last 6 months, the Camp Fire of California was the most destructive in their history and the 6th overall in the US. It’s kinda like California’s version of Hurricane Harvey, and those of you that lived through that know how much resilience it took to help one another through it.
Enter Sierra Nevada and Ken Grossman. They made a call to action to breweries around the country, and the call was to brew a beer, raise some money, and donate it to Camp Fire relief. Breweries around the country lined up for the recipe and started cranking out their best Resilience IPA.
Grossman is visiting Houston to thank Flying Saucer Beerknurds and several Houston breweries who raised monies for The Sierra Nevada Camp Fire Relief Fund which distributed funds to partner organizations dedicated to rebuilding and supporting the affected communities following the most destructive wildfire in the history of California.
The list includes:
Baa Baa Brewhouse
No Label Brewing
Lone Pint Brewery
Wicked Boxer Brewing
Stovetop Brewing (Craft Beer Cellar Cypress)
Bearded Fox Brewing
Southern Star Brewing
Bryan College Station Zoigl
Eureka Heights Brew Co.
Saint Arnold Brewing
8th Wonder Brewery
Beerknurds and beer drinkers from far and wide are invited to visit with the legendary Grossman and enjoy $4 Sierra Nevada pints including rare classics like their Hoptimum Triple IPA, Kellerweis, Hazy Little Thing IPA, Sierraveza Mexican Lager, and others.
At 6:30 pm, Flying Saucer will present Grossman with a check for $42,828 raised by Beerknurds at The Flying Saucer. This doesn’t include the tens of thousands of dollars raised by the rest of the list above.
Don’t miss your chance to be a part of the biggest ever craft-beer relief effort on Wednesday, April 24 from 5pm-10pm.
Flying Saucer is located at 705 Main Street at Capitol in downtown Houston. Hours of operation are Monday – Wednesday 11am-1am, Thursday – Friday 11am-2am, Saturday 11am-2am and Sunday 11am-1am. For more information go to Beerknurd.com or call 713-228-9472.
