imageFrom Deschutes:

On June 11, Oregon’s Deschutes Brewery brought its 402-foot custom, transportable bar to the Headhouse Plaza in Philadelphia, serving almost 100 kegs to approximately 10,000 people. The one-day-only event donated 100 percent of proceeds to nonprofit organizations, raising a total of $34,144.

The main beneficiary was Vetri Community Partnership, and funds will help the organization continue to provide support to feed children healthy meals all over Philadelphia. Twenty percent of net proceeds will go to the South Street Headhouse District, to help provide a safer, cleaner, well managed business district.

In its second year, the Street Pub has visited Arlington and Philadelphia so far in 2016. Upcoming stops include Columbus, Chicago, Roanoke, Twin Cities and Sacramento and Minneapolis. In 2015, the Street Pub raised more than $400,000 for charity.
