Best Example of Booze Making You Charitable

Steel City Big Pour. Construction Junction, Point Breeze.
December 7, 2011; Cu

 

“We’re sure folks already support all the great work mega-recycler Construction Junction does … but staging an annual fundraiser with huge amounts of craft beer sure can’t hurt. The Steel City Big Pour, now in its fifth year, sells out fast, but lucky funders get beer toys (growler, opener, taster glass and beer caddy), and three hours to sample brews from more than three dozen breweries, many of them local.”
