Benefit for a fallen rider AKA All you can drink beer!

Here's the dealio (direct from the boys at Avery):

Benefit for Ryan Barnett - 11AM to 5PM - Saturday, June 14th

As those of you who have joined the brewing staff for runs and rides know, we like to play as hard as we like to party. Well, unfortunately, a Cat 1 racer friend of the brewery was involved in an accident and is in serious condition. During an early morning training ride, Ryan was run over by a truck's trailer. He fractured his skull, pelvis, vertabrae, some ribs and is currently undergoing massive amounts of surgery, still in the hospital, and facing lower body paralysis. Ryan's hospital bills are mounting up and we would like to help him out by throwing a benefit in his honor and for his wife and two little girls. There will be food and beer, but also raffle and silent auction items from incredible vendors such as Blue Competition Cycles, Spuik, Helly Hansen, Deuter, and many others. We will also be doing free bike tune ups! We are asking for a $20 donation, but we will not discourage anyone from giving more.. So please, enjoy a run or a ride in the morning and then come by the brewery for lunch and a few beers and a chance to win helmets, sunglasses, clothing and even a full carbon road bike in the size of your choice.

Not sure how to find the brewery? Just Click here for a helpful map.
