Craft brewers & blues lovers are united to help fight hunger in America over the next 6-months; starting in June 2017 - November 2017. The way the event works is SIMPLE! We bring a party to a brewery creating free blues concerts inviting all that attend to bring non-perishable food donations that stays with the local food bank. With your help, we bring craft beer lovers and blues fans together to help feed the hungry. We create a special night with celebrity guests musicians and jammers to play the BLUES with the host band "Sweet Sixx and The Wild Pack" to raise food for the community.
