Helping Seniors Through Beer Sales

Posted: Updated:

Davenport's Great River Brewery tapped into a keg of Owney Irish Red Ale Saturday to kick off a fundraiser for the Center for Active Seniors.

Proceeds from the ale sales will be donated to CASI to help pay for some of the wide variety of programming and services the organization provides in the QCA.

"Being a non-profit, we're always looking for ways to create funding for us and this was a unique "brew" idea for us, so it's fun," said Sarah Arp, CASI's Marketing Coordinator.

This is the second year Great River Brewery has teamed up with CASI for this fundraiser.

Owney Irish Ale is available at the brewery and on shelves throughout the Quad Cities.

"Owney" is an old Irish word for "elderly".
