Pints For PJ's - Karma Keg

When: Saturday, June 25. 12-8pm. 
Where: Brave Brewing Co, 205 Queen Street, Hastings. 
What: BEER AS A FORCE FOR GOOD. Brave Brewing will be running a 50L Karma Keg of Tigermilk IPA, and the idea is that you pay what you like for your pint of beer, with all proceeds from this keg going towards the wonderful local initiative - Jammies for June. On the day they will also be collecting cash donations, as well as donations of new, warm cotton and wool pj's, slippers, knits, blankets etc. They have supported this initiative for several years as they love that it is hyper local, and positively impacts families that are in need, here in the local Hawke's Bay community. Providing children and families in need with real, tangible items that provide warmth and also just a little bit of love and kindness.

Let's use beer as a force for good and help keep some children warm this winter!
