Forty Days: Lenten Collaboration Beer Release Party!!!
February 13 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm$20
Join us Tuesday, February 13th, from 5-7pm, at Breaker Brewing Company in Wilkes-Barre Township, as we unveil our Lenten collaboration beer “Forty Days” Doppelbock with the Diocese of Scranton. We will celebrate the beer with a release fundraiser to benefit “Rectory, Set, Cook!” which supports hunger and homelessness causes through Catholic Social Services.
This brand new beer, which we brewed in collaboration with Father Brian Van Fossen of the Diocese of Scranton, is a big-hearted “double Bock” that gives back. It celebrates the history of the Doppelbock beer style and its ties with the Lenten season. Inspired by what Munich-based Paulaner friars would drink while fasting for the 40 days of Lent, the beer took 40 days to come to its full fruition. It’s a Doppelbock brewed with various malts including pilsen, Melanoidin, Munich and a touch of chocolate pale malt. It boasts light notes of caramel and toast with prominent aromas of contrition and forgiveness.
This malt-forward offering is an offering in another sense, because each purchase will help feed the hungry and house the homeless. A portion of all sales of this collaboration beer throughout the duration of the Lenten season, including draft and cans, will directly benefit “Rectory, Set, Cook!” which supports hunger and homelessness causes through Catholic Social Services.
The release fundraiser is open to the public who are encouraged to attend. Admission is a $20 donation per person, which includes admission to the fundraiser, one draft beer of the new “Forty Days” collaboration and light fare provided by Breaker Brewing Company including pizza and various charcuterie, cheeses, vegetables and other snacks. Raffle baskets will be available to win from the Diocese of Scranton. Father Brian Van Fossen along with Breaker Brewing Company owners and brewers Mark Lehman and Chris Miller will speak about the inception of the beer and brewing process.
Tickets are available in advance via the listed ticket link. If attendees prefer to pay cash at the door, they can email Sandra Snyder, Director of Foundation Relations and Special Events of the Diocese of Scranton, directly with their name, phone number and ticket quantity at email@example.com to reserve their ticket.
