This Event will celebrate the life of one of Cincinnati's biggest beer advocates while raising stroke awareness and raising money for some of Cis' favorite charities.
This beer was brewed at Braxton in collaboration with MadTree, Rivertown, Fibonacci, Bad Tom Smith, and Alexandria Brewing Company. Special thanks goes out to People. Pints. Purpose. for organizing the entire collaboration. And, none of this would have been possible without the Cisnernos Family, especially Tina, and, of course, a true legend in the Cincy brewing community, the Gnarly Gnome.
Please follow P3, Braxton, or any of the other participating breweries Facebook feeds for more details as this event approaches.
Q & A
There have been quite a few questions via Facebook. Braxton is heading this event up. Cincy Brewcast will be doing their annual holiday Podcast live from the event. On top of the People. Pints. Purpose. (P3) will be there as organizers.
Volunteering? If you are interested in volunteering, we are asking that you reach out P3 via Facebook or Twitter through a direct message or email Monica Bowles at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a regular night for Braxton and they will have staff on hand. So, in terms of what they will need for volunteers is up in the air.
Packaged product? This beer was something special for all of the parties involved and as such it was not a large run in the terms of Braxton's capacity. At this time, they have decided to put it in kegs only. There is a chance some places may see distribution, especially to the participating breweries that are able to carry guest drafts. This is not to say Braxton will never can or bottle it. This first run of it. Also, Braxton does offer growlers and crowlers (large cans filled from the tap and sealed at the bar) to go. So, taking some to go is an option.
More to come? Each brewery has discussed the possibility of brewing our own variant annually and putting our own twist on it. For example, when we were discussing Mike's favorite styles, Gnome said a true to style pilsner was his number one and a black IPA was his close second. Our head brewer put fourth the idea of a black pils. So, you may see that in our variant. Debates start with this style though as a true, all malt pilsner, especially when it is done traditionally (decoction) is suppose to be the toughest beer to brew and to deviate from the guidelines keeps it from being a true pilsner.
