Pub crawl Saturday in Overton Square to benefit National MS Society

February 29, 2012 By: mike Category: Craft beer, Events, Memphis

On Saturday afternoon, have a pint (or maybe a few!) in Overton Square and raise money for a good cause.

The second-annual “MS Pub Crawl” will hit up five different bars around Overton Square in Midtown Memphis.

The event starts at 2 p.m. at Boscos Squared, then goes to the Bayou Bar & Grill, Blue Monkey, Molly’s La Casita, Dublin House, and then back to the Bayou, where the festivities finish around 6 p.m.

The cost is $20 and includes a commemorative T-Shirt and enters you into a drawing to win a free trip to Las Vegas.

The event is sponsored by the Memphis Brewer’s Association, and proceeds benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Multiple sclerosis is a chronic disease that attacks the central nervous system and affects 400,000 Americans.

The pub crawl is the first of two beer-related events benefiting research for MS in March. The third annual Brew Movement, a craft beer and homebrew tasting event, will be held March 15, from 6:30-9:30 p.m., at the Chickasaw Oaks Village.

Recap of Memphis’ Brew Movement for MS

March 14, 2011 By: mike Category: Craft beer, Events, Homebrew, Memphis

On Thursday night, the Chickasaw Oaks Village shopping center in East Memphis transformed into a beer garden with a purpose.

The second-annual Brew Movement for Multiple Sclerosis, spearheaded by Bluff City Brewers & Connoisseurs member Joe Barnes, drew a couple of hundred people and raised money for the Mid-South Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

It was a great event, with lots of nice folks and lots of craft beer from Southwestern Distributing and homebrews from the Bluff City Brewers.

Those of us from FuzzyBrew volunteered for the cause and got the plum assignment of manning the Abita Beer table all night, serving up (and sampling) Abita’s  Jockamo IPA, Amber, Light, Andygator, SOS and Strawberry Harvest.

Joe Barnes and the Brew Movement

Joe Barnes helped organize the Brew Movement for Multiple Sclerosis

The Commercial Appeal had an excellent story in the paper a few days ago featuring Bluff City Brewer Joe Barnes and his Brew Movement for Multiple Sclerosis this Thursday, March 10.

Definitely check out the article, as it goes into much more depth than we did when we wrote about the event here and here.

And definitely come to event! As Barnes says in the CA article, if you don’t come for the beer, come for the cause.

Mike and I both will be volunteering for the event, so stop by and say Hi.

The event will be held from 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm, Thursday, March 10 at Chickasaw Oaks Village, 3092 Poplar Ave. That’s next to the Benjamin Hooks main branch of the Memphis Public Library system.

Tickets are $25 and can be purchased online. Call 901.755.9712 for more information.

See you there!
