Random beer mule leads to beer group — Answered a random Facebook group post regarding a beer pickup request from an Upland lottery. I had also won (and had family to visit in IN), so I volunteered. From that, the guy and I ended up with a decade-long bond, attending beer events and forming a small beer tasting group in our small town. He, unfortunately, developed cancer. My friends and I worked with a local brewery to name a beer in his honor based on his favorite beer style. The brewery hosted a fundraiser, raised $10k toward his medical expenses, and then continued to donate a portion of that beer’s profits to a cancer charity after his passing.
