Oskar Blues’ ‘Make a Difference Monday’ to Benefit RiverLink

Here’s the press release from RiverLink:

Asheville, NC – Looking for a way to make your beer dollar go farther? Love craft beer and conservation along the French Broad River watershed? Here’s the perfect event for you.

RiverLink is thrilled to be the featured nonprofit of the Oskar Blues/Tasty Weasel Making A Difference Monday program. On Monday, August 19. 10 percent of all sales in the Tasty Weasel Taproom will be donated to RiverLink. The taproom is open noon until 8:00p.m. There will also be an Old Time Music jam from 6:00-8:00p.m. that is open to all ages.

The money donated will help RiverLink continue the economic and environmental revitalization of the French Broad River and its tributaries as a place to live, work, and play. RiverLink is an environmental non-profit organization focusing on issues that directly impact the environmental health of our region’s rivers and streams and the growth and sustainability of our economy.

The tasting room is located at 342 Mountain Industrial Drive, Brevard, North Carolina 28712. To ease driving woes, there is a special offer for a free trolley ride from the River Arts District to Oskar Blues if we can get at least 25 people to commit.

The trolley will leave between 4:30 and 5:00 p.m., drop guests off at the Oskar Blues Brewery, and then return them to the River Arts District after the event.

Reservations are a must — If you would like to sign up for the free trolley or simply need more information call the RiverLink offices at 828-252-8474, ext 10.

Located in Asheville’s River Arts District, RiverLink is a regional organization spearheading the economic and environmental revitalization of the French Broad River watershed as a destination where everyone can work, live and play.
