Mark & Jimmy are Broadway Actors and Craft gurus; but how to get Broadway and Craft (Beer) to intersect? One offhanded comment from Squigs was a seed, then Jimmy was out running, and bam! THE IDEA: The Happy Hour Guys get cast members of a Broadway show together with a Craft Brewery and brew a Craft Beer for Charity of the show's choosing! The goal? The Broadway six pack.
BREW #1: HAMILTON + GUN HILL, benefiting GRAHAM WINDHAM.
Click on the players to watch the whole process of Broadway Brew #1 in 3 episodes: Hamilton an American Musical, Gun Hill Brewing and Graham Windham plan the recipe, then head up to the Bronx for Brew Day, and ultimately back to the Broadway district for the release party.
BREW #2: SCHOOL OF ROCK + CARTON, benefiting SING FOR HOPE.
BREW #3: WAITRESS + SIXPOINT, benefiting the ADRIENNE SHELLY FOUNDATION.
Cast members of the hit show Waitress and Sixpoint Brewing teamed up to create "IT'S FOR ADRIENNE" Cherry Cream Ale, a perfect brew to have alongside as you think about music and pie. Sales will benefit the Adrienne Shelly Foundation, which supports women in film!
