I count any day I find out about a new beer/wine fundraiser as a good day. Today was one of those days.
Jamie Opat from Starkey, Inc., stopped by to tell me about Amber Waves, a new beer stroll planned for May 16 in Delano. It sounds sort of like the popular Winefest Walkabout only with beer in Delano instead of wine in Old Town.
The event includes 13 participating Delano businesses who will offer 2 oz. pours of craft beers made by brewers such as Breckenridge, Sam Adams and Schlafly. Those who attend buy a $50 ticket and stroll from store-to-store sampling the beer. Several of those stores also will offer hors’ d’oeuvres prepared by local restaurants and prize drawings, too. Already signed up are stores such as All Things BBQ, Bluebird Arthouse and Twist Yarn Shop.
The event is from 6 to 9 p.m., when most of those businesses would normally be closed. Money raised goes to Starkey, Inc. More information and tickets are available at www.amberwavesict.com.
