Find Your Pint at Bhramari Brewing Company @ Bhramari Brewing Company Tickets
Oct 15 – Nov 14 all-day
Find Your Pint at Bhramari Brewing Company @ Bhramari Brewing Company

Bhramari Brewing Company is fighting the good fight for bees and other pollinators along the Blue Ridge Parkway with a Find Your Pint event. For every pint of their flagship sour pale ale, The Good Fight, sold from October 15 through November 14, Bhramari will donate $1 to the Foundation’s Bee Kind to the Parkway project.

The initiative was launched to reestablish wildflower display areas along the scenic mountain route so that bees and other pollinators can thrive. Proceeds toward the initiative help citizen scientists collect and replant seeds for the wildflower bays and survey populations of bees, butterflies, and other pollinators. The overall goal is to boost pollinators by increasing the number of flowers on the Parkway.

For this special Find Your Pint event, Bhramari is also collaborating with Mountain Inspiration on a special Bee Here Now T-shirt design. Purchasing a T-shirt is a great way to show your support for the project, and $10 from each sale will benefit the Bee Kind to the Parkway project!

Meet renowned glass artist Jack Pine October 26th and 27th @ Bellagio Art to Wear

Saturday, Oct. 26th 10am – 6pm
Sunday, Oct. 27th 12pm – 5pm

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Having grown up in Southwestern Ohio, which is the birth place of the North American Studio Glass Movement, Jack was constantly exposed to glass artists and their varied techniques. As a child, Jack would experiment with molten bottle glass in campfires on his family’s farm. Today he is the creative force behind Jack Pine Studios, which has become a mecca for talented soft glass artisans. At the heart of the studio are the designs and techniques developed by Jack.

“I enjoy the intense demand on my skill and the focus involved with working with molten glass. All the energy I use to create a piece is captured in the glass, and thus is frozen in time forever.” — Jack Pine
