Louisville, KY (July 26, 2017) – The 1st Annual Craft Beer Throwdown, a benefit for the Coalition for the Homeless, will be held in the Louisville Executive Aviation hangar at Bowman Field, 2700 Gast Blvd., on Thursday, Sept. 7th from 6:00pm – 10:00pm. At this new event, guests will taste brews made exclusively for this event and vote for a winner. Attendees can also enjoy the breweries’ regular offerings, food trucks, and entertainment. The first 200 guests will receive a swag bag. Tickets are available for a $20 donation in advance at louhomeless.org or a $25 donation at the door.
Participating local breweries include Great Flood Brewing Company, Monnik Beer Company, Mile Wide Beer Company, Against the Grain Brewery, Holsopple Brewing, and Falls City Brewing Company. The winner of the 2017 Craft Beer Throwdown, based on the people’s choice voting at the event, will receive a custom-engraved mash paddle to display at their brewery.
The Craft Beer Throwdown was created by the Coalition’s Associate Board of Directors, a recently formed group of 18 volunteers who are focused on engaging young professionals with the Coalition’s efforts.
All proceeds from the Craft Beer Throwdown will go towards the Coalition’s collaborative efforts to end youth homelessness in Louisville. In January of 2017, the Coalition for the Homeless and 50 community partners created the “Louisville Plan to Prevent and End Youth Homelessness,” in an effort to address the needs of 838 homeless youth in our community.
On August 1st, 2017, Louisville will officially launch the 100-Day Challenge, which is a project where a community decides together on an incredibly ambitious goal: to end experiences of homelessness for a large number of young people in their community within 100 days.
The 1st Annual Craft Beer Throwdown is presented by Kosair Charities. For more information about the efforts of the Coalition for the Homeless in Louisville, visit www.louhomeless.org or call (502) 636-9550.
