Pints for Prostates Charity Event: Sept 16

On Sunday, September 16 from 2 to 6 p.m. BeerUnion’s own John Kleinchester will be hosting a Pints for Prostates charity event at Barcade in Jersey City, NJ. September is National Prostate Cancer Awareness month. Pints for Prostates is an organization that raises awareness about regular health screenings “through the language of beer.”

If you donate early to this event, you have the chance to get a pint of Founders KBS!


I’m going to have a table set up at the door. A $1 donation will get you a blue “Livestrong” style wristband that you need to wear for the duration of the event. Barcade will be donating $1 from every beer purchased by someone wearing a wristband between 3-6pm. In addition to the wristbands, I’ll also be selling raffle tickets for a chance to win a trip to Belgium, Holland and Germany in September 2013. Sounds awesome right? We’ll also have literature on prostate cancer as well as P4P hats & shirts for sale.

Oh, there’s just one more thing. We all know that KBS is a very, very tough beer to get your hands on. So here’s what we’re going to do. If you want to GUARANTEE yourself a pour of KBS, all you have to do is donate a minimum of $5 to Pints for Prostates and forward me your email confirmation of the donation along with your name so I can put you on the list. If you want to donate more than $5, that would be awesome too. We’re only accepting a maximum of 50 guaranteed donations so get on that right now so you don’t have to worry about it later. Note that you still have to pay for the beer itself, this is just to gauarantee you get some. If you’d like to reserve pours for others, just indicate their names in your email and donate $5 per person.

This event is important to us, not only because John’s hosting it, but also because several men in our family have been affected by prostate cancer. So get out there and drink for a good cause! What more motivation do you need?
