Drink Beer to Send a Kid to Summer Camp

Related topics: , , , , ,

Yep, you read that correctly. Drink beer, and you’ll help send a kid to summer camp. It just doesn’t get any cooler than this!

This Thursday, April 19 from 5 to 8p.m. Pyramid Alehouse will provide unlimited tastings of its new beer releases, light snacks, and live music for just $25. Proceeds will benefit UCP of Sacramento and Northern California’s Autism Center for Excellence, and send 15 children with autism to summer camp at Grizzly Creek Ranch in Portola.

Seriously! Let me repeat myself. You drink beer. Kids go to summer camp.

“Summer camp is a rite of passage, and we want to make sure all kids have the chance to enjoy this experience, regardless of having a developmental disability,” says Doug Bergman, president and CEO, UCP of Sacramento and Northern California.

Well, Doug, you had me at “beer.”

Buy a ticket. Help these kids out! (Must purchase tickets in advance.)

About GreenBeet

Nonprofit fundraiser by day; book-reading fiend by night; plant-hugging backyard farmer early in the morning: this is GreenBeet. I still play with crayons because I love colors. Green, like the planet, is my favorite. Art makes me smile. I get giddy with glee over seed catalogs. Attempts at reducing my environmental footprint offer adventure in my world. I can only afford to own it if I find it at the local thrift store, and by golly, I love a good thrift store. Sacramento, get ready to green it up GreenBeet style! Let the fun begin!

    Moe, have you been to Pyramid lately? New owners have seriously stepped up the selection of new, experimental, high-octane and “imperial” beers which are quite good. Plus, they just brought back their original recipe pale ale from 1984 which is damn good. Give them another chance if you think they are only offering the same old same old

    I am patiently awaiting the return of the original recipe Snow Cap. You old timers know what I am talking about.

    I’m not a good person to take beer advice from. I can’t stand – in fact I get sick from – really hoppy beers, like Pliny and even IPAs. I love sour Belgians and weissbeers and guezes and lambics. And I like ciders and to an extent the bitters like you get in the UK, and some very dark porters and things like that. But most American/European yellow beers just taste vile to me. Not sure why. I’ve tried many and very rarely find anything I like the taste of. So Pyramid, which seems to specialize in these brown/yellow beers, doesn’t really do it for me.

    But I am glad to see that they’re not as awful as they used to be.

    I always liked the place, decent service, cheap bar food, nice space. I’m glad they’re in Sacramento.
