Casks for a Cause is the Weekend’s Best Reason to Drink Beer



This weekend’s big event is Casks for a Cause, in which some so-called “media stars” were asked to support charity by creating their own beer brand. I can’t figure out why no one requested a Rusty Satellite brew. Nonetheless, I’m planning to go and sample a few at the new Goodwood Brewery at Clay and Main. Plus, a chance to hear the Cathouse Liars. Here are the details:

Of course, professionally made brews will be available for purchase as well. Rounding out the event will be live music, food trucks, and other artisans selling their creations. In an effort to raise awareness for local charitiespatrons will vote for their favorite beer and the designated charity for the winning brew will benefit.

“Craft beer is rising in popularity all over the place and Louisville is no exception.  At Casks for a Cause, teams from the local media will each concoct their perfect brew using a base beer from Goodwood Brewing Co. and special ingredients from My Old Kentucky Homebrew.  It’s exciting to see what the different teams come up with and it will be even more fun to drink the results.”
