beef and brews
First Responders Benefit is a community organization that hosts the Beef and Brews Fundraising Event annually. Known for its famous homebrew competition, delicious food, and exciting raffle prizes, the event attracts participants from all over the area. But our mission is even more important: We are dedicated to helping our local first responders by raising funds to purchase new equipment, organize training seminars, and provide support in times of need.
All of our events have one crucial element, YOU! Included with your event ticket is a delicious meal prepared by our local Lions Club members (Seriously, a full steak dinner), and all the craft beer you can responsibly drink. There are games, raffles, a silent auction and lots of laughs and snacks. Plus, you get to take home a souvenir tasting glass like the ones pictured here.
The First Responders Benefit Homebrew Competition is a great way to get your beer-making skills recognized. It's a competition carefully curated for amateur brewers. Every year, we get to see incredible talent and creativity that takes beer-making to the next level. Our amateur brewers are given a platform to showcase their best blends, and the funds raised are donated to our courageous first responders as a token of appreciation.
Join us at First Responders Benefit, the premiere fundraising event for our local first responders. It’s a fun and exciting way to support a great cause while enjoying some of the best beer in the region. We showcase commercial breweries and the incredible work they do, and we also honor our first responders as the heroes they truly are. Our goal is to raise funds to support their work, and to create an event that brings our community together. Come and be a part of something truly special!
