Ryan Hooper GofundMe Donation Raffle List


Ryan Hooper GofundMe Donation Raffle List


Ryan Hooper, AKA the face of Beer’s Looking at You in Webster, needs some help. The chances are high that you already knew that, and that’s why you’re here.




Who is Ryan Hooper and why are we donating all this stuff off for him?

Ryan Hooper is one of the most recognizable and outgoing faces within the Houston Beer community. We’re raising money to donate to his GoFundMe because we figured we could donate a couple hundred dollars, and that’s fine, or we could make some phone calls and potentially donate a lot more.

If you’d rather just go donate to the GFM directly, please, we encourage you to do that.

Ryan had a medical emergency that spiraled into the ICU. His family is going to be faced with a mountain of medical bills, so let’s help soften the blow a little for them, and give back. Ryan’s the kind of guy that makes everybody smile, even people that didn’t really know him. 

How does it work?

Go make a digital purchase of your “tickets” on our store site at houstonbeer.af. After a week, we’ll pull all the purchases and randomly select two winners. Then we’ll donate all the money from the “tickets” to the Ryan Hooper GofundMe, and then meet the winners somewhere locally in Houston, TX to give them this haul. Please bring a forklift.

We’ll randomly select 2 winners for the raffle. Each raffle ticket will be 1 entry. There are no limits on entry.

First place: 2/3 of the beer, swag, and all of the items that can’t be split up
Second place: 1/3 of the beer


What do I win?

Hopefully, you’re sitting down. There’s well over $2,000 worth of beer, beer vouchers, and some of the coolest brewery swag. Apparently we’re not the only people fond of Ryan.

Go buy a few chances to win, go donate to the Ryan Hooper GofundMe, tell a friend, and let’s help this man and his family know just how loved they truly are.

Thank you to all the breweries, owners, taproom managers, beertenders, and every single person that made this possible. Special shout out to Josh Olalde, Brent Topa, Chris Barnett, and Chris Adams, driving all over town to gather all this stuff and take beautiful pics of it. Coolers were broken, lost, and re-purchased, hours and hours were given to drive, make phone calls, and so on. Y’all rock. You guys are why Beer Chronicle exists.

Beers to you, Houston.

Beer Chronicle Team
