Hopefully, the second time is the charm for Casks for a Cause. The event was postponed to THIS weekend (June 27th) thanks to rainy weather. louisvilleky.com and Rusty Satellite’s very own Rick Redding is the emcee of the awards ceremony. – Jackie H. Bentley
Louisville, Ky., – The meteoric rise of craft beer in Louisville has been well recorded in local media. Now, the media, itself, is being asked to try their hand at crafting the perfect beer recipe while raising money for local charities.
Spudz Chips is the presenting sponsor and Goodwood Brewing is playing host to the block party style event, beginning at 2 p.m.,at 636 E Main Street (on Clay Street between Main and Market). The public can sample each media cask and vote on their favorite. This event is FREE, family friendly and open to the public. However, in order to sample the cask ales and vote, patrons will have to purchase a $20 sample card.
Each team has chosen their local charity to compete for the top three prize donations. First place will receive $1,000 for their charity, Second is $750 and Third is $500. We also have a special award for the last place group.
Of course, pints of Goodwood Brews and others available for purchase. There will also be live music, food trucks, and artisans.
Casks will be tapped at 2 pm and voting closes at 7 pm (unless the casks are gone)… WINNERS announced at 7:30 pm.
