Kayla, Walt, Adam and Mark are on the podcast this week and ready to celebrate Pride month with a Pool Party! We’ve packaged our crisp, tropical, refreshing Pilsner in limited edition six packs to celebrate the incredible LGBTQIA+ community here in Columbus and Central Ohio. For each six pack sold we’ll be donating $1 to the amazing Kaleidoscope Youth Center who works in partnership with young people to create and implement positive youth development activities and services that enhance the lives of LGBTQIA+ youth and allies. In addition to these special sixers, we’ve brought back our popular pride t-shirt for a third year with all proceeds from t-shirt sales also benefiting Kaleidoscope! These t-shirts are available only in the taproom starting Thursday, June 6th and will go quick!
