Lions, Tigers, Beers OH MY! 11am, Tuesday 6/19

Northdown is proud & excited to be hosting an incredible day to benefit The Wildcat Sanctuary in Minnesota. The event is being generously sponsored/co-hosted by our friends at 3 Floyds, Surly, & Mikkeller — three of the world’s best breweries! The Wildcat Sanctuary is a non-profit, no-kill facility providing sanctuary to wild cats in need & actively involved in ending the private ownership of exotic animals. Our goal is to raise at least $5000, which would feed two tigers for a year!

The event starts at 11am on June 19th. We’ll be tapping rare beers from 3 Floyds, Surly & Mikkeller every two hours throughout the day, as well as beers generously donated by Piece Brewing & Firestone Walker Brewery. We’ll also have amazing raffle drawings all day, with items donated from some of the best artists & shops in the city!

A few of the beers we’ll be pouring:
Surly – Five
Surly – Abrasive
Mikkeller – 1000 IBU
Mikkeller – Monks Elixir
3 Floyds – Hells Black Intelligencer
3 Floyds – Tiger Jelly
