When Northbound Smokehouse & Brewpub opened in 2012, they did so with the help of funds raised from the sale of 80 Beer for Life Memberships – $1,000 donations to the start up, in exchange for free beer for the life of the individual (or the bar). To show their thanks on their first anniversary, the folks at Northbound are raffling off a Beer4Life Membership, with proceeds going to The Above & Beyond Children’s Foundation and the Midtown Farmers Market.
Besides the Beer4Life raffle drawing on Sunday, Northbound is planning a weekend One Year Anniversary celebration on 09/20-09/22. They are going to feature thirteen of their own beers as a tap takeover, to highlight the work they’ve been doing over the past 12 months. Some notables on the beer list include Clementine Big Jim IPA, Granola Girl Pale Ale (brewed with naked oats), Cherry Porter (both regular and smoked), Hot Box, their collaboration beer with Indeed Brewing, and a Farmhouse-style Anniversary Ale.
If you are interested in purchasing a raffle ticket, they are currently on sale at the brewpub for $10. Tickets are being sold through Sunday, September 22nd at 3pm, as this is when they will be drawing a winner!
