POSTPONED TO JUNE 27
This weekend’s big event is Casks for a Cause, in which some so-called “media stars” were asked to support charity by creating their own beer brand. I can’t figure out why no one requested a Rusty Satellite brew. Nonetheless, I’m planning to go and sample a few at the new Goodwood Brewery at Clay and Main. Plus, a chance to hear the Cathouse Liars. Here are the details:
The newly opened Goodwood Brewery, located at Clay and Main plays hosts for the June 20thcelebration, where patrons can taste the celebrity cask creations. Of course, professionally made brews will be available for purchase as well. Rounding out the event will be live music, food trucks, and other artisans selling their creations. In an effort to raise awareness for local charities, patrons will vote for their favorite beer and the designated charity for the winning brew will benefit.
FIRST PLACE: $1000; SECOND PLACE: $750; THIRD PLACE: $500
Open to the public. Cast your vote on a cask, $20 for a tasting card and vote. $20 allows you to taste all the Cask for a Cause Ales and vote for your favorite! Cask Ale Voting closes at 7pm, Charity winner announced at 7:30pm.
“Craft beer is rising in popularity all over the place and Louisville is no exception. At Casks for a Cause, teams from the local media will each concoct their perfect brew using a base beer from Goodwood Brewing Co. and special ingredients from My Old Kentucky Homebrew. It’s exciting to see what the different teams come up with and it will be even more fun to drink the results.”
