So, we are officially the worst procrastinator of the bunch (of beer bloggers). Thanks to Geoff Kaiser of Seattle Beer News for reminding me, via his post, to let you all know about Beer Church’s Turkey Bowl!
Beer Church is a Seattle non-profit organization who, along with our amazing Seattle beer community, raises funding for a variety of charities. They do it all through the magic of beer!
Through the annual Turkey Bowl, Beer Church raises a significant funding and food resources for the West Seattle Food Bank. The bowling lanes at West Seattle Bowl are already full, but you can still join them this Saturday to donate food, drink some beer and get to try their newest creation, a collaborative pale ale made with Big Al Brewing, called Beer Church Pale Ale.
Beer Church is a wonderful organization put together by some even better people – Kendall and Kim Jones. Kendall & Kim also run Washington Beer Blog, one of our favorites. Make sure to check them out, if you haven’t yet.
Here is some information on the event:

for West Seattle Food Bank
Join the members of Beer Church at West Seattle Bowl on Saturday, November 20th (5:30 p.m.) for the 12th Annual Turkey Bowl as they collect food donations and raise money to support the West Seattle Food Bank. Held the Saturday before Thanksgiving, the annual Turkey Bowl features more than 200 bowlers and dozens of spectators. The event is open to the public but also includes teams representing local restaurants, bars and breweries.
The West Seattle Food Bank works to eliminate hunger in West Seattle so that no one in our community will go to bed hungry. Opened in 1981, the West Seattle Food Bank serves over 500 families each week. The food bank recently experienced the busiest month in its 29 year history. Please help us support this worthy cause as they face unprecedented challenges.
Food donations and other contributions can be dropped off at West Seattle Bowl on the day of the event. For more information visit http://www.beerchurch.com or call (206) 218-7387.
