Interested volunteers should obtain a ticket and email Shannon Bowser ( and Jon Luton ( for details and to schedule a time.

Donate to raffles and affected East Village Craft Beer Bars

Jimmy’s No. 43, Burp Castle, and Standings have long been a hub of NYC homebrewing and were closed for two weeks following the explosion. We hope to collect donations from homebrewers to buy gift certificates to those bars and to then include those certificates in the Suds in Solidary raffle. Money raised for the purchase of the gift certificates will support the bars, and all raffle ticket proceeds will be donated to the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City; East Village Building Collapse fund. If you’d like to contribute toward the purchase of these gift certificates, please contact Alex Kalaf (

Brewnity at the Bell House posterBrewnity at the Bell House

February 22nd, 2015, 1pm-5pm

Local NYC homebrew clubs and stores will represent themselves under one roof to benefit City Harvest. Celebrating the thriving local homebrew scene, the event has invited all local clubs and stores to participate by sharing knowledge and samples of their wares. Find your local club and meeting time, meet the members, and taste love in a glass! 100% of proceeds from this event will be contributed to City Harvest. City Harvest exists to end hunger in communities throughout New York City. They do this through food rescue and distribution, education, and other practical, innovative solutions. Find out more at

And as the Bell House is a fantastic live performance venue, the event intends to feature a makeshift band comprised of musican homebrewers to play a set or few of classic and original tunes.

Tickets provide entry to the 4 hour event and a plastic cup for samples. Starting at $25, the varying prices reflect how much is donated to City Harvest on your behalf.
