A while back I posted about donating some of my beer for a charity auction at work. Well I decided to go for it and my colleague helped me make a "brew basket" with a six pack (2 Oatmeal Stouts, 2 JubelAle clones and 2 CaliCommons) a bag of Rolled Gold, can of beer nuts, 2 nice Pilsner glasses, a jar of Stout Dijon and some beer pads and stickers from local brewpubs; that and a bomber of each of the beers mentioned. They went nuts for the stuff! Pulled in $347 from all combined. I'm a little nervous to hand out bombers that folks shelled out $30 bucks for! We ended up raising $5277 in a little over an hour that we donate 100% to three different local charities that we select every year. Felt good.
I donate a case of 12 ounce bottle to two silent auction charities each year. This year, a case of my American Amber went for $130. It makes me feel good.
