William Weekend

Orange & Brew is proud to present its Inaugural William Weekend May 17 – 19th in remembrance of Carrie’s Dad who passed away at the age of 57 in 2003 after an eight-year battle with brain cancer. As May is Brain Cancer Awareness Month, each year Orange & Brew will designate a weekend in May to raise funds to help fight this deadly disease and assist the families affected by it. This year’s fundraising is especially close to our hearts as all money raised will be donated to the family of Ellie Cuiching. You may recognize Ellie’s story from the green wristbands we sell in our shop with her mantra #EllieStrong. Ellie was diagnosed with a brain tumor when she was 6 years old and had been bravely fighting this disease when she passed away last week at the age of 14.

During William Weekend, Orange and Brew will donate a dollar from every draft sold to Ellie Cuiching’s family. We will have a couple of fun beers on tap that weekend in memory of Carrie’s Dad so stay tuned as we get our tap list together!
