Lagunitas: Charitable Beer

WFMU's Beer Hear! Lagunitas podcast

Even though we were at the Blind Tiger the previous day for our annual post-Thanksgiving dinner digestive walk, we were very happy to visit there again with canned food in hand to donate to a food drive for the Food Bank for New York City organized by Mark of LAGUNITAS BREWING
Mark of Lagunitas, B.R. and Jim of Lagunitas.
The deal:  if you brought just one can of non-perishable food to donate, the brewery bought you a pint! Feeding hungry New Yorkers, one pint at a time...

Lagunitas' Facebook page.

Did you ever hear the story of when Lagunitas was raided and shut down by the California ABC? If you check out the podcast, then you will have!

Lagunitas will host another charity/beer drinking event in NYC, too. On Tuesday Dec. 20, 2011, they'll be coordinating with TOYS FOR TOTS, the US Marine Corps charity which collects toys to distribute to kids who may not otherwise have such a merry Christmas.
Just bring a new, unopened toy to Rattle 'n Hum on Dec. 20, and you'll get discounted beer AND a free Lagunitas pint glass that you can keep! We hope to see you there! (UPDATE: This event will now take place on Dec. 22 at Blind Tiger.)
Why is there no Brown Sugga' for the holidays this season? And what is in its place? Check out the podcast to find out!
Do you know about the collaboration that Lagunitas did with German brewery manufacturer ROLEC?   Podcast!
