On Saturday, September 10, Oregon-based Deschutes Brewery brought their pop-up Street Pub to Minneapolis for one day during their seven city nationwide tour that includes stops in Arlington, Philadelphia, Columbus, Chicago, Roanoke, and Sacramento. While the block party only lasted eight hours, that’s all it took to be record breaking.
The event raised $104,723 for Second Harvest Heartland, the most funds in Deschutes Street Pub’s history.
In it’s second year in the Twin Cities, Deschutes served 209 kegs to roughly 20,000 people. And with its 400-foot bar in the middle of the North Loop, 100 percent of the proceeds went to Second Harvest Heartland, one of the nation’s largest food banks. The money raised during the event will provide 314,169 meals for needy families in greater Minnesota.
