Expect to see Bob for Thanksgiving this year
Bob’s Brown Ale is the beer that Georgetown Brewing releases each year to raise funds for Ronald McDonald House Charities. They’ve been doing it for years and have raised a shocking amount of money for the cause. Read the story behind the beer.
Some things change, some things don’t. Over the years, Nickerson Street Saloon hosted some pretty rowdy release parties for Bob’s Brown Ale. Sadly, Nickerson Street Saloon is no more; it closed for good on Sunday, October 31st. Big release parties at The Nick will not return, but Bob’s Brown Ale is coming back soon.
Most often, in pandemic-free years, Georgetown Brewing releases Bob’s Brown Ale in the spring, but this time around they’re planning on having it available in time for Thanksgiving. Last year the beer was also released “off-schedule” in December when Bob’s Brown made its way into aluminum cans for the first time. Cans are back this time around too.
A newsletter said, “Our plan is to have cans and some draft ready to go right around Thanksgiving. As usual, 100% of proceeds will be donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Western WA and Alaska!”
For certain, the cans of Bob’s will be available at the Georgetown Brewing taproom in Seattle. Keep an eye on the company’s social media channels for more information.
