North Pier Brewing Invites You to Golf for Good at Harbor Shores, Oct. 2

Golf and good beer. A truly classic combination. But the knowledge that you’re enjoying both to support those in need in your community – even better.

North Pier Brewing Company of Benton Harbor is giving you the opportunity to do just that. On Monday, October 2, they’re hosting their first-ever Big Hole Golf Outing at Harbor Shores Golf Course. This four-person golf scramble (using special 8-inch holes) and brewery after-party will support Feeding America West Michigan and their efforts to improve food security in Berrien County.

The $90 cost includes your round of golf, a burger or brat for lunch, a 16-ounce North Pier insulated cup, and a beer voucher redeemable at North Pier. Registration begins at 10:45 a.m. with a shotgun start at noon. Awards for longest drive, closest to the pin, lowest team score, and more will be given out at North Pier at 6:30 p.m.

Sponsorship opportunities are available. For more details, visit northpierbrewing.com.

North Pier is located at 670 North Shore Drive in Benton Harbor.

On September 14, The Livery Microbrewery will host a Community Pint Night to benefit Feeding America West Michigan. For each pint sold between 5 and 8 p.m., the Benton Harbor brewery will donate 50 cents — the equivalent of two meals — to the hunger-relief organization. If more than 250 pints are sold, The Livery will tack on an extra $50!

In addition to partaking in The Livery’s hand-forged ales, patrons can enter a raffle to win a custom-engraved Hops Against Hunger growler.

Feeding America West Michigan serves 40 counties in West Michigan and the Upper Peninsula and operates a branch warehouse in Benton Harbor. From that branch, the organization provides food to more than a hundred local food pantries, soup kitchens, and child hunger agencies in Berrien, Cass, and Van Buren counties. The need for food in the region remains high, as one in five kids in Berrien County struggles with hunger.

Staff members from the organization will be on hand to talk about their effort to solve hunger in Southwest Michigan.

The Livery is located at 190 5th Street in Benton Harbor. Find out what’s on tap at liverybrew.com.
