Brew News: May 2015

doc5537cca0e93ad359467433Welcome to the mad month of May! As it always is, May is one of our busiest months… preparing the taproom & annex for summer (which starts Memorial Day weekend in Southwest Michigan), the true kickoff of festival season, Chicago Craft Beer Week, and on and on.

In case you missed it, April was one wacky month–the photo to the left being one from our Shears & Beers Fund-Razor & Sunspot launch party at the annex. At the end of the evening, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Berrien & Cass Counties garnered the most support and received $1,500 from Greenbush and Eagle Technologies. Chikaming Open Lands received $1,000 from Greenbush and Sawyer Hardware and Lumber. OCCDA received $500 from Greenbush and Seeder & Company Landscaping Services. In addition to that, individuals donated more than $1,200 by way of raffle tickets to the organizations of their choice. Thanks to all who made it out! Now, on to May…
