Yorktown Rotary: Drink Beer to Give the Gift of Mobility

Yorktown Rotarians are hosting a fundraiser – where you can drink beer for a good cause – in scenic surroundings overlooking the beautiful Hudson Valley.

The Yorktown Rotary Club is looking for beer drinkers to participate in a fundraiser this Saturday, Sept. 29. 

Proceeds from the second annual craft beer festival "The Best and the Wurst" will go to the club’s wheelchair project, which in conjunction with the Wheelchair Foundation and the Rotary Club of Morelia Mexico, provides mobility to the needy disabled in central Mexico.

"It’s a tough job, but we bet you are up to it, even if they have to bring a large group of friends," Dave Bowers said.

"The Best and the Wurst" will be held at Croton Point Park on Sept. 29 from noon to 5 p.m. 

Five craft brewers will be presenting their wares: Captain Lawrence Brewing (Elmsford), Defiant Brewing Co. (Pearl River), Keegan Ales (Kingston), Shmaltz Brewing (Brooklyn) and Newburgh Brewing (Newburgh). The Green Growler Craft Beer Grocery of Croton will also be on hand with beer gifts and homebrew kits.

The Rotary club will be providing free Wisconsin-style Beer Brats as part of the admission fee along with pretzels and soda. Members will also be featuring BBQ Wings by Yorktown’s own Neighborhood Barbecue Team. 

Pre-purchased tickets are $30 for drinkers and $10 for designated drivers and kids online ($40 and $15 at the gate).

Tickets are available at http://www.RotaryBeerTasting.org.
