Buy a Beer for Joplin

Beer KC is teaming up with Boulevard Brewing Company to help provide relief for our southern neighbors in Joplin, MO. Joplin was hit by a devastating tornado on May 22, 2011, causing an estimated $3 billion in damage, killing 139 people and injuring over 900; it is ranked the 27th deadliest tornado in the history of the world. In an effort to rebuild the city, Boulevard is offering a $1 donation to the American Red Cross  for every barrel (31 gallons) of beer they sell in Missouri throughout September and the Foundry & Beer Kitchen are joining the effort by donating $.25 for every glass of Boulevard beer we sell this month.  This is a great way to help out your fellow Missourians and enjoy yourself in the process.  Read more about this tragic event here.
