Jimmy Eat World is making a Futures beer, named after their album of the same name. You can read about the beer below.
That pint of beer that Rick and I shared became 2 and 3 pints, but what really came out of that invigorating conversation was a spark. An idea. A desire to change the future. We wanted to make a beer that highlighted a bands 10 year album release, Arizona agriculture, and just plain Arizona. We wanted 10 AZ ingredients and most importantly, we wanted to give the profits to organizations who would greatly benefit our community. When Jim, Tom, Zach, and Rick walked through our brewery doors this morning, the energy was high, and the passion was endless. We talked about our charity choices, and how excited we are to send some funds there way. As Arizona Wilderness we chose The Arizona Chapter of the MS society. Sarah, who reps them locally, was kind enough to stop by for the shenanagans. She was a great wealth of knowledge and clearly passionate about her subject. My wife has had MS for near 10 years now, and we are honored to be a part of the MS Society. Jimmy Eat World all chose “Little Kids Rock”, a foundation which supports kids’ right to have quality and relevant music education in their lives. Music has meant a whole lot to them, and it’s a sad fact that the arts are usually the first programs to be cut in public schools. Little Kids Rock and The MS Society we are honored to be on board with your efforts!
