Sam Hendler, the VP of sales for Jack’s Abby, said his company has organizing an event at The Tavern, a restaurant and bar located just a few blocks south of the Boston Marathon course. The event will feature donated beer from at least 14 craft breweries, including:

  • Jack’s Abby

  • Brash Brewing Co.
  • Battle Road Brewing Co.
  • Mercury Brewing

100 percent of the proceeds will be donated to a yet-to-be-determined charity.

“Most of the beer being donated will be poured on draft,” said Hendler. “We will also host a raffle of items donated by local breweries and beer shops.”
