Cheers for Charity

Join HAMS at Calusa Brewing on April 15th in supporting Everyday Blessings, Inc.

Weeks ago HAMS members joined the talented brewers at Calusa and brewed up a lovely blonde wort. Members then took gallons of this liquid gold home and provided a variety of treatments. The result: a diverse variety of delicious beers for all palates.

Come on in to the Brewery, stop over at Everyday Blessings’ table, learn more about their mission: providing care for and keeping foster siblings together until they find their permanent home. We only ask you drop them a donation ($5-$10 suggested, but any amount is appreciated) or bring items from their wishlist. Then come on over and sample some beers!
