Raise a Pint for the Poor

| January / February 2003

A Minneapolis-based nonprofit is helping to raise money for a local homeless shelter in a creative and thirst-quenching way: by selling beer. The Spud Society has teamed with a local church and two nearby breweries to produce and market Finnegan’s Irish Amber beer, which is available in 30 local taverns and a host of liquor stores, according to The Rake (November 2002). Proceeds of the sales will benefit the cash-starved Love Power shelter.
