Great beer, great causes on Saturday

Sacramento area beer folks are constantly donating product and raising money for local charities. Two great events on Saturday invite you to enjoy great craft beer while giving back to your community.

Rubicon hosts the 4th annual celebration of Women in Brewing all day Saturday, starting at 11AM. This year, they feature 13 beers from 7 breweries, all brewed by women. Selections will include a nitro choco-mint, a red IPA and a double IPA from Rubicon, Summerfest and a scotch ale from Sierra Nevada, Scarlet Harlot Red IPA from Auburn Alehouse, scotch ale from Lost Coast, Hell’s Export Lager from Moylan’s, a ginger/meyer lemon beer from Blue Frog, Witches Wit from Santa Cruz Mountain, Red Rocket from Bear Republic and two Belgian imports from Urthel, their Samaranth and Hop-It. Local businesses have donated prizes for a silent auction. This event benefits WEAVE.

Also on Saturday, the Country Club Saloon in Loomis hosts the Memory Pour Can Beer Festival. Benefiting the Sacramento Alzheimer’s Memory Walk, this event features seven breweries that are all putting high quality craft beer in cans. Participating breweries are Oskar Blues, Caldera, Anderson Valley, Maui, Buckbean, 21st Amendment and Big Sky with food donated by Rubio’s, Zorro’s and The Pizza Factory, raffle prizes donated by local businesses and live local music. 1-4 pm, $15 advance/$20 at the door.

Did you notice that we did not take advantage of the humorous potential in the coincidental scheduling of an event featuring women brewers and an event featuring beer in cans?
