Growlers Beer Bistro hosts beer-centric fundraiser

On Thursday, March 20, at 7 p.m., Growlers Beer Bistro will be hosting a Stone Tap Takeover and fundraiser complete with a 50/50 raffle and live music for a Stone brewer who passed away at the brewery last year.

Matt Courtright was a great brewer and Growlers is lucky enough to get a keg of his imperial cherrywood-smoked saison called Burning Rosids.

Keg proceeds will be donated to GoDesign, Inc., a charity Courtright spent a lot of time helping.

Live music starts at 8 p.m., with rock, soul, R&B and funk by the John James Band.

The Stone beers pouring will be Matt’s Burning Rosids Imperial Saison, Sublimely Self Righteous, Ruination and Go-To Session IPA.

For more information on this or other events and for a complete list of draft and bottled beers, call 914-793-0608 or visit growlersbeerbistro.com.
