Dick’s Brewing 4th Annual Beer for a Cure photos
Date: September 19, 2015
It was difficult to find a seat at Dick’s Brewing Co. yesterday during its 4th Annual Beer for a Cure fundraiser for American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life of Lewis County. As rockin’ country band Littlerock rattled the kegs, guests bid on silent auction and raffle items, including the super raffle of three theater style chairs paying tribute to the Seahawks, Mariners and Sounders, as well as a 20-person party at Dick’s new brewpub in downtown Centralia. As in year’s past, the fundraiser also served as an award ceremony for the brewery’s Homebrewing Competition, awarding five top winners in the blind judging contest. Forty beers were judged Thursday. Jason Stoltz and Casey Sobol won the competition in 2012, eventually opening their Top Rung Brewing Co. in 2014.
Pete Hausman took home the top prize this year with an Oak Stout. Hausman will brew his winning batch on Dick’s Brewing system. The brewery will hold a release party for Hausman’s beer and have the Oak Stout on tap at the brewery Tasting Room, NW Sausage & Deli and downtown Centralia brewpub.
Dick’s Brewing has been brewing craft beer in Centralia for 21 years.
