Drink Beer and Help Hurricane Victims at Bierport and The Abbey Tonight
As you know, our friends in Houston and surrounding areas were devastated by the impact of Hurricane Harvey. The aftermath of this vicious storm has left many people without homes and everyday essentials. Millions of people around the country have united to help those affected by Harvey and tonight is your opportunity to join the cause.
Five breweries have teamed up to raise funds and collect essentials in support of Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. Brooklyn Brewery, Lagunitas Brewing Company, Southern Tier Brewing Company, Sierra Nevada, and Rhinegeist will be at Bierport and The Abbey in Lawrenceville this evening to collect essential items for those in need. Representatives from these breweries will be at Bierport on Butler Street from 5-7pm and at The Abbey, also on Butler Street, from 7-9pm. Your donation will enter you to win cool brewery swag from the participating breweries.

Hurricane Harvey has left thousands homeless and without basic needs… so we are teaming up in the beer community to help make a difference. But we want your help too!
On Thursday Sept. 7th we would like you to bring donations to those in need. From 5 -7pm we will be hosting a special extended happy hour where you can win swag from our participating breweries as a thanks for bringing in donations.
For the entire day, Bieport is donating $1 from every pint sold. We will accept donations all day long, but prizes can only be won from 5 -7pm.
For every beer that is sold from 5 – 7, Frank Fuhrer Wholesale will be donating a percentage of sales to the Brother’s Brother Foundation, a Pittsburgh-based international charity who is currently giving 100% of its donations for Hurricane Harvey directly to Hurricane Harvey Relief efforts and the Red Cross! That’s hard to beat!
Breweries joining the cause include: The Brooklyn Brewery, Lagunitas Brewing Co, Southern Tier Brewing Company, Sierra Nevada, and Rhinegeist (who will be donating a matching percentage of their sales during happy hour).
Donation items you are encouraged to bring include: toiletries, new socks/underwear. pet supplies, and diapers. No donation is too small.
