(BONUS EPISODE) LIVE Hilinski‘s Hope Fundraiser at Taps Beer Reserve
On this episode of Business Over Beer, we’re live from Taps Beer Reserve in Ridgefield Washington for the 3rd annual Hilinski’s Hope Foundation Fundraiser.
Hilinski’s Hope was born out of tragedy when the Tyler Hilinski, then the quarterback of the Washington State University Football Team, took his own life. Hilinski’s Hope promotes awareness and education of mental health and wellness for student athletes all over the country. And now for the second straight year has organized college football mental health week with over 60 schools participating.
We were so happy to be part of this event hosted by our good friend Kevin Summers of Taps Beer Reserve, and amazing business owner who is doing so much for our community.
Also, October 10th is world mental health day and it is important that we continue to normalize the conversation around mental health, mental wellness and mental illness.
Craft Beer We're Drinking:
Fortside Brewing - Vancouver, WA
Defresh Mode IPA, 6.6% ABV, 48 IBU
"We’re kicking off fresh hop season with a beer that will ‘never let you down again’. We like to think ‘everything counts’ in this beer, from the foundation of Pilsner and light caramel malts to the four layers of flavor and aroma hops. A pint of Defresh Mode is like your own ‘personal Jesus’."
Aslan Brewing Company - Bellingham, WA
Totality Pale Ale, 5.4% ABV, 30 IBU
"Lime, orange bitters, and evergreen flavors from Barbe Rouge, Centennial, and Huell Melon hops."
Goodlife Brewing Company - Bend, OR
Sippy Cup Hazy Pale Ale, 6.4% ABV, 35 IBU
"Sippy Cup is a hazy yet brightly golden color, Pale Ale, with a thick creamy head, bursting with juicy hop flavor and aroma. Melon, pineapple, black tea, and citrus notes are upfront in the aroma. A light, medium-bodied mouthfeel finishes with a burst of citrus/tropical flavors and a very subtle bitterness."
