What's better than enjoying a delicious craft beer? Doing so and knowing that every penny you spent is going to a good cause, that's what. Brian Martin, Head Brewer at Tradition Brewing Company joined us on our craft beer podcast this week to talk about their craft beer release happening this weekend, and how all proceeds are going to the Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired. PLUS, we talked about some of the wild beers he brews, designs labels for and cans all on premise!

Supporting the Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired is near and dear to Brian's heart as he has suffered multiple retina detachments in recent years. Though he was able to recover from these incidents, many others are not as fortunate. Brian has set a goal for himself to run the Boston Marathon this October with Team With a Vision in support of those who are blind or visually impaired, and he is working hard to raise $10K by the date of the race.
Want to know how you can support?
If you're a fan of juicy craft beers, you can stop by Tradition Brewing Company for their "Beer With a Vision" Hazy Pale Ale release this Friday, 7/30, and pick up a pack of your own. Thanks to the generous donations of Brian's ingredient suppliers, all proceeds for this craft beer will be donated to the cause. Check out the label (also designed by Brian) below to check out some of his ingredient suppliers that made this possible.
Maybe you don't live near Newport News, VA or craft beer isn't your thing. That's no problem - you can also donate directly to Brian's fundraiser, organized through GivenGain.
Brian is Brewing Bizzare Beers
