More than a dozen local breweries will band together in solidarity and the spirit of community beginning on Thursday, April 7. Together they will raise funds to help one of their own.
Aaron Grizaniuk, brewmaster and owner of Patron Saints Brewery, has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Grizaniuk has long been not only a passionate member of the Toledo craft beer community, but a generous and philanthropic soul in the Glass City area.
To help support Aaron and his family, a GoFundMe page has been created, gathering over $54,000 in donations thus far. But Grizaniuk’s fellow brewers in Toledo wanted to do more. Thus, 16 different breweries will host “Pint Nights” beginning April 7, the date of National Beer Day. $1 will be donated towards the Grizaniuk GoFundMe for every pint of beer purchased.
The breweries participating include:
