Mankato Free Press (October 21, 2021) — Next month Mankato Brewery and Lupulin Brewing Co. in Big Lake are teaming up again to produce the limited-edition Hazy Hero IPA, and craft beer enthusiasts can rest easy knowing that drinking a pint of the brew will go toward a good cause.
“This will be our third year doing Hero,” said Tim Tupy, founder of Mankato Brewery. “We are doing a kickoff event on Nov. 2 at the brewery. Our goal is to raise anywhere from $1,500 to $2,000 that night for the Jonathan Zierdt Cancer Fund.”
The event, which also will feature live music from local neo-folk band the Divers, will have limited seating, with a capacity of 126 people, to adequately social distance to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Tupy encouraged anyone interested in attending to reserve a table. The event will also be streamed live on Facebook.
