For every pint of Let Me Fetch An Oatmeal Stout sold in their taproom, the brewery will donate $1 to Feeding America West Michigan as part of the statewide Hops Against Hunger campaign.
Pigeon Hill describes LMFAO as an “extremely drinkable oatmeal stout.” It comes in at 5.0% ABV and 20 IBUs and is served on nitro in the taproom. An agreeable companion to ease your transition into fall.
Kumbaya is an American Brown Ale brewed with a blend of specialty and roasted malts. But if it wasn’t roasted enough for you, your server will smoke it at your request right there at the bar. The full pint glass is placed into a glass chamber, which is filled with hickory smoke, imparting a fresh wallop of charred goodness to bring you back to “those cool nights sitting around the campfire.” Silver Harbor claims this is the first example of a live-smoked beer, and we won’t argue!
Feeding America West Michigan is based in Comstock Park, just north of Grand Rapids, and serves Berrien County from its branch in Benton Harbor.
Every pint of Crossroads Rye IPA sold at Harmony Hall during the month of September will provide four meals to people in need. That’s because Harmony is donating $1 from each sale to Feeding America West Michigan.
Every dollar the organization receives allows it to distribute four meals in the community. There’s quite a lot packed into that pint glass!
The Crossroads Rye IPA lives up to its name. Sharp, pungent, and piney, the Crossroads is a well-executed example of a still-uncommon style.
Harmony Hall is the second location for Grand Rapids’ Harmony Brewing Company. Located in a former Mexican restaurant on the city’s west side, Harmony Hall has its own brewing system and its own culinary specialty: house-made sausages, and lots of them.
The catch: Equinox Pale Ale doesn’t go on tap until September 7. So until then, Distant Whistle will apply the donation to the bestselling beer of each day leading up to the release. They’ll also donate $3 for every growler fill of the bestselling beer.
Currently on tap are the Loch Ness Scotch Ale, the Eclipse Black IPA, the Backpacker’s Blonde, and more. Check out the full lineup on their website.
The Food Bank of South Central Michigan is based in Battle Creek and serves those in need in Kalamazoo County and seven other Michigan counties. In partnership with local partner agencies, they provide food to nearly 190,000 people each year.
Feeding America Pale Ale is a taproom exclusive. A session ale weighing in at 4.4% and 35 IBUs, this beer is balanced, tangy, and quaffable. Hopped with Cascade and South African Southern Star, the beer should also be of interest to hopheads looking to try an unusual variety.
