Long time friend of Georgetown Brewing Co. owners & brewers, Bob Hirsch, died of cancer just after his 21st birthday. He was an inspiration to many and the inspiration behind Bob’s Brown Ale. Every year, Georgetown Brewing Co. releases Bob’s Brown Ale in honor and in memory of their dear friend. 100%, yes 100%, of all profits made from this beer go to the charity chosen by Bob’s family, the Ronald McDonald House.
Below is an excerpt from a press release provided by the Seattle Ronald McDonald House about the upcoming release party:
Seattle, WA–Georgetown Brewing Company celebrates the release of its special brew, Bob’s Brown Ale, on Friday May 14, 2010 (Bob’s Birthday) at 6PM at the Nickerson Street Saloon, 318 Nickerson Street, Seattle.
The goal for the 2010 release of Bob’s Brown Ale is to raise $50,000 to support the Seattle Ronald McDonald House, which will provide 28,000 nights of housing this year for families with seriously ill children. Since first brewing in 2006, Bob’s Brown Ale has raised more than $113,000 for the Seattle Ronald McDonald House.
