It could be called pints for pure water.
Grist Iron Brewing Co. on Route 414 in this Schuyler County town is inviting the public to attend its Benevolence Beer Series Kick-Off Party at 5 p.m. Thursday, at which it will celebrate the unveiling of its hefeweizen beer. A portion of the proceeds from each pint of hefeweizen sold from January through June will be donated to Seneca Lake Pure Waters Association to support its water-quality-monitoring projects.
“Seneca Lake is a fundamental part of our brewery. The lake provides water, scenery and inspiration,” said Kate Fuller of Grist Iron Brewing. “Last fall, we decided that we wanted to honor Seneca Lake by selecting a Benevolence Beer Series recipient that was getting their hands and feet wet while tackling the lake’s current water-quality issues. Seneca Lake Pure Waters Association was the natural choice.”
Those attending Thursday’s event also can enjoy light appetizers and the music of the band The Sweats.
