Benefit proposed to support Strange Brewing legal battle

Strange Brewing CompanyHere's a great example of how the Colorado brewing community supports each other in times of need.

Details are still in the works as of this posting, but Grimm Brothers Brewhouse of Loveland, CO will be partnering with the Rackhouse Pub in Denver, CO to hold a benefit beer event to help raise legal fees for Strange Brewing Company in their defense against a trademark name infringement case. The event is now set for Sunday, January 27th, 2013 at The Rackhouse Pub in Denver starting at 3:00pm. Proceeds from beer sold at this event will go towards the defense fund for Strange Brewing Company of Denver, CO.

Russel Fruits of Grimm Brothers hopes that breweries across Colorado will come together and donate a keg for this event and help promote this effort state wide. An additional charity will also be named to benefit from any monies not needed by the legal defense fund.

Save the date and come hoist a few pints and help Strange Brew stay Strange. Here is a link to a recent article by Westword.com that has details on the lawsuit. The idea to help them with legal fee's started with one of Grimm Brothers taproom employees.

For questions about this event or to Donate a Keg to the cause contact Russell Fruits at: Russell@grimmbeer.com. More details will be posted here as they are made known. Please help spread the word about this.

The Rackhouse Pub is located at: 208 S. Kalamath Street in Denver, CO.
