From September 1-30, Pigeon Hill Brewing Company in Muskegon will be laughing their … heads … off in support of local hunger relief.

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.

Pigeon Hill is located at 500 W. Western Avenue.

Harmony Hall Donating $1 Per Pint of Crossroads Rye IPA This September

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.

Harmony Hall is located at 401 Stocking Avenue NW.

On Monday, September 25, New Holland Brewing Company will host its third-annual Rocktobefest Beer and Spirits Dinner at their Pub on 8th. The event supports Feeding America West Michigan.

Rocktoberfest is a delight to the senses for beer, food, and music lovers alike. Each of the event’s six courses features a three-way pairing: a drink, a dish, and a rock ‘n’ roll classic performed by the Schrock Brothers.

The musical connection sets Rocktoberfest apart from other events. Each of the guest chefs, who include Dan Compton from Vie in Chicago and Brandon Johns from Grange Kitchen and Bar in Ann Arbor, is challenged to create a dish inspired by a song.

Proceeds from the event will be donated to Feeding America West Michigan. Rocktoberfest 2016 raised more than $11,000 for the organization.

Tickets can be purchased at Eventbrite. Table sponsorships are also available for $850. Sponsorship includes table top signage, a chance to meet the chefs, and a shout-out in the event program. Those interested can contact Hannah Lovasco at hlovasco@newhollandbrew.com.

New Holland Brewing Company’s Pub on 8th is located at 66 East 8th Street in Holland.
