Red, Wine and Brew – Mentor partners with SweetWater Brewing and Lake Metroparks in fundraising raffle.
Mentor, OH, July 26, 2017 – Red, Wine and Brew – Mentor has partnered with Sweetwater Brewing Co of Michigan and Lake Metroparks in a fundraising raffle that will benefit Lake Metroparks’ water conservation and preservation programs. SweetWater has donated a sweet, tricked out kayak designed by Tribe for SweetWater Brewing Co’s “Save Our Water” initiative. Red, Wine and Brew – Mentor will be selling raffle tickets the entire month of August for a chance to win the kayak. The kayak will be in the showroom and ticket sales will begin August 1st. 100% of the proceeds will go to Lake Metroparks to aid in their conservation of the portions of two state designated wild and scenic rivers and the many tributaries which flow through and are protected by the park system.
According to SweetWater Brewing, “Protecting our waterways is a cause real close to our hearts, because you can’t make good beer without good water.” As purveyors of many unique craft beers and fine wines, the crew at Red, Wine and Brew could not agree more. “Lake Metroparks is such a large part of our community and the importance of helping to protect and giving our citizens access to our local rivers and waterways is part of being a good neighbor and a way we can give back to the community,” states beer department manager, Melisa Baringer. “This is an exciting opportunity for us. We are very happy that SweetWater chose our location and Lake Metroparks to be a part of this worthwhile initiative.”
As a part of the month long event, the Wine Down Lounge, located inside of Red, Wine and Brew – Mentor, will feature rotating tap handles with a new SweetWater brew being featured each week with special pricing. The company’s flagship beer, SweetWater 420 will be on tap at $4 per pint all month long. Prefer your beer in bottles or cans? Sweetwater’s offerings in 12oz bottles or 16oz cans will be available at $2 each in the Lounge as well as the retail department.
Join Christine from SweetWater Brewing Co. on August 31st from 6-8pm for the campaign Wrap Party where she will be presiding over a FREE tasting of SweetWater brews. Schwag and other special prizes will be available to those attending. The Wine Down Lounge will have beer and food pairing specials available for purchase during the evening. The lucky winner of the kayak will be announced with the grand prize drawing taking place at 7:45pm. Ticket holders must be present to win.
A representative from Lake Metroparks will be on hand to educate and inform the public about their water conservation and protection projects as well as their programs. Red, Wine and Brew will present a check for the proceeds of the raffle during the evenings’ festivities.
