Beer + Book Release Benefiting 826 MSP
November 14, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pmFree
La Doña Cervecería and indie publisher Sic Semper Serpent have joined forces for a two-in-one beer & book release event to benefit youth literacy non-profit 826 MSP on Give to the Max Day!
Pensar Porter is a dark, roasted beer with hints of cocoa and malt perfect for long, cold nights curled up with a great book.
“The Adventures of Israel St. James” is progressive, pulp-style fiction at its finest, historical action for readers of all ages. This epic, fully-illustrated collection of globetrotting short fiction depicts a centuries-long quest to collect and keep safe the world’s most powerful artifacts. A limited-edition poster with art from the book will be available.
A dollar from the sale of every beer and limited-edition poster that day will be donated to 826 MSP.
The Minneapolis chapter of the national 826 organization has a mission to empower underserved K-12 students to think creatively, write effectively, and succeed academically alongside a community of caring volunteers. Some fine folks from 826 MSP will be at the event with merchandise, books written by their young students, and more information about the important work they do in our community.
