Twisted Pine Brewery Gives Back – Local brewery hosts benefit for the Autism Society of Boulder County
Boulder, Colo. – Twisted Pine Brewery has always made it a part of their mission statement to give back to the community and support local charities. On Sunday, April 17th from 12-6p they will be hosting a fundraiser for the Autism Society of Boulder County. The brewery will be donating $1 for every pint sold and hosting a silent auction with unique donations including jewelry, beer products and gift certificates to local hot spots. In addition to the auction Twisted Pine is hosting Brewery Olympics; a competition consisting of events such as blind keg tapping, frozen t-shirt contest, ridiculous relay race, beer trivia and, of course, a chug off. Teams of 2-6 people will compete for Twisted Pine Gear, gift certificates and bragging rights. This event is part of a series of fundraisers Twisted Pine will be hosting throughout the summer.
