Beer Can Save Lives

Yesterday, while helping my wife at a great indie craft fair, I was privileged to meet Jodi Stoudt, who spends he very little bit of free time as a crafter herself. Of course, our entire discussion was about beer. I was impressed not only by the amount of love and knowledge about beer that came forth in our brief discussion, but also in how supportive the PA brewers are of each other. She was talking about how excited she was to try the LBC Shoo-Fly Porter and had very positive things to say about them, Troegs, and Weyerbacher when I brought them up.

Enjoyable conversation, but you may beer asking, “Why is this post called ‘Beer Can Save Lives’ ?!?!?!?” Well, I’m getting to that. Jodi told me yesterday about an awesome venture that she and Stoudt’s took on to raise money for a great cause. A lemon beer produced in conjunction with some heavy hitters in the food world has debuted and 100% of the proceeds are benefiting Alex’s Lemonade Stand. The recipe is quite similar to the Karnival Kolsch, but a yummy lemon marmalade was added to give the German style easy-drinking pale lager.

Jodi did not know exactly when Stoudt’s would be tapping it, but it will be available at Philly Beer Week and Great Chefs Event 2010, featuring all the big names you know from the Food Network. If you, like me, can’t make it out to these events, stay glued to TPM and The (Pennsylvania) Beer Snobs for info on it’s availability at the brewpub in Adamstown.
