Bethlehem Brew Works
Join us to help out the Center for Animal Health and Welfare. They specialize in providing a safe and healthy environment for animals through their foster program. They are also a no-kill shelter. Here’s a little info about them from their website:
Formed in 1913, The Center for Animal Health and Welfare (formerly the Northampton County SPCA) is a private organization. We are not affiliated with any other SPCA or ASPCA. We are not a government agency, but are a non-profit organization with a 501c3 status. In 2003 we committed ourselves to saving lives and became a no-kill shelter. We are dedicated to providing a safe and healthy environment for animals. We have improved our foster program, increased adoptions and offer a low-cost spay/neuter program.
Make sure to come out and have a pint for this great cause. If you’re on the internet, it’s almost a law that you must love cats and dogs. Be proactive and save a kitty or puppy!
There will be no Charity Cask Night on July 4th, 2013
Charity Cask Nights
Since June of 2006, the entire proceeds of the Bethlehem Brew Works first Thursday’s “First Firkin” has been donated to a local non-profit organization. Better still, the non-profit recipient has the opportunity to present literature and banners, and have representatives on hand for an informal Q&A and info-session about their community work.
A craft brewery draws its character and strength from its community, but it can also give back to the community and help create positive change. That’s the idea behind this series of benefit events that take place at the Bethlehem Brew Works every 1st Thursday of the month.
WHAT is a firkin ale?
A firkin is a small keg, holds about 9 gallons or so of cask-conditioned, 50°F beer. Our head brewer offers a hand pumped, cask-conditioned ale from a 10-gallon barrel called a firkin. The cask is always a special, one-of-a-kind beer connoisseur’s treat. It is available only until it runs dry, which could be just hours (or less) after it’s tapped.
WHY a firkin ale?
If you love beer then this is your chance to experience drinking a real ale!
Open up your senses to the hop and malt flavors released by drinking a beer from a hand-drawn firkin served at a respectable temperature.
Our brewers then work their magic to give each cask its own special character.
The Bethlehem Brew Works is currently booked for Charity Cask Nights through 2013. Submissions for 2014 charity casks will be accepted starting August 1st, 2013.
