Löwman Bräu launch, report #1: Benefit brew debuts

(Photos by Ellen Cedergreen for WSB)
Sure, it was an excuse to drink a brand-new beer. But tonight’s Löwman Bräu launch was about fundraising, too. With so many venues participating, and donating part of the proceeds from this new West Seattle brew, we had two crews out checking in with the events – here’s the first round of photos, from WSB contributor Ellen Cedergreen. Top photo, that’s The Bridge co-owner Trevor Garand with dog rescuer Ginger and crew – The Bridge’s beneficiaries are canine charities including hers. Heading south from there, Locöl chose Roxhill Elementary, which had a contingent in a booth:

Behind the bar at Locöl was Shane, who said, “Come to Locöl, drink for kids!”

On Ellen went to White Center, where Big Al Brewing brewed Löwman Bräu – and is donating to the White Center Food Bank, which had a team out on Big Al’s patio (executive director Rick Jump included):

Full Tilt Ice Cream also is benefiting WC Food Bank with its Löwman Bräu sales – and with matching donations from its 3rd-birthday ice-cream sales next Monday, as noted here. One more WC stop – we found Jesse and Aaron at Company, which chose WestSide Baby (as did Shadowland in West Seattle):

Our north/center crew will check in later, including the scoop from Löwman Bräu central at Feedback Lounge (WSB sponsor). The venues listed here all got an initial shipment of the new brew, so even if you didn’t make it out tonight, ask for it tomorrow and beyond!

    Just got back from Company. Jesse says Company will continue matching all purchases of Lowman Brau for Westside Baby donations until their supply of beer runs out! And the beer was oh so refreshingly delish!

    The beer was tastey at the bridge and the 2 dogs up fo adoption loved the attention. Scruffy and Daisy loved the attention and the occasional dropped piece of food.
    Good News! Scruffy was lucky enough to get a trial run at an adoption! thank you Rita,Trevor and the gang for picking “Dogs 4 Dogs” & http://www.gingerspetrescue.org as your chosen charity for the Lowman Brau charity.
