East Brother Beer Co. to host Richmond FUN(draiser) Thursday


By Zach Chouteau

Richmond Main Street Initiative is teaming up with East Brother Beer Company for a festive FUN(draiser) at East Brothers’ taproom this Thursday.

Santa Needs a New Sleigh! will offer top-tier beer, food, guest bartenders, music, and more, with all tips from beer and food sales supporting the 16th annual Downtown Holiday Festival (listed below).

The fun will run from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at 1001 Canal Blvd., and also include a Santa photo booth, “Ugly” Holiday Sweater Contest and raffle prizes. City of Richmond employees will receive $1 off pints (with ID).

Another bonus will be the presence of the popular Taqueria Esperanza food truck. The event is sponsored by Richmond Main Street, East Brother Beer Company and Taqueria Experanza.

Also, beyond just this party, East Brother Beer is offering half-off for a pint to those who donate new toys for local children ages 0-12. The toys will benefit the Richmond Fire and Police Toy Program. Do not wrap the toys. No toy weapons allowed.
