Draughtsmen Sponsors Blondes vs. Brunettes

Goleta Taproom Joins Fight Against Alzheimer’s with Flag Football

Blondes or brunettes? Whether over brains, brawn, or brews, both shades of hair and beer are continually pitted against one another on the playing field and at the bar. On Saturday, July 22, everyone wins in this eternal battle when award-winning Goleta brewhouse Draughtsmen Aleworks teams up with the California Central Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. By serving as a Game Day Tailgate Sponsor for the RivALZ Blondes vs. Brunettes Santa Barbara flag football game at Bishop Diego High School and then offering another chance to donate at the taproom, Draughtsmen is doing its part to aid in the fight against Alzheimer’s.

The game will raise funds to benefit the care, support, advocacy, and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association, so Draughtsmen drinkers can feel extra-good about their choice of beverage. Beers on tap at the game will include Buxom Blonde Ale and Citricide Extra Pale Ale on the blonde side, and recent award winner Meat & Potatoes Porter on the brunette side. At the Goleta taproom, you can purchase a karma pint; until July 31, $1 from every karma pint sale will go to the Alzheimer’s Association. If you like a bit of friendly competition, karma pint buyers can vote on which team will receive their donation.

Kickoff is set for 11 a.m. on Saturday, July 22, at Bishop Diego High School (4000 La Colina Rd.). For more information, visit
