0812Ns Entertainment (Brew Something that Matters)

On Saturday, Aug. 8, The Pearce Family Foundation is brewing a specialty beer for its upcoming second annual Brew Something that Matters fundraiser.

The Brew Something that Matters fundraising event is to be on Sept. 12, at OHSO Brewery in Arcadia.

According to a press release, the foundation will be brewing its specialty beer with local Arizona prickly pear fruit and honey from a local farmer for its ale.

The Pearce Family Foundation was asked by owner Jon Lane to participate in another brew because of last years successful event that raised over $10,000 in just four hours, stated the release.

This Saturday, Aug. 8, the foundation will be brewing its specialty beer that will then be tapped for the party in a month, according to the press release.

The brew master will be leading the board and volunteers throughout the brewing process on how to make the beer, stated the release. The  prickly pears will be torched and honey poured in — making it a special one of a kind beer that will help the foundation continue to raise needed funds for the foundation, the release stated.

The beer making will take place 9 a.m.-1 p.m. at OHSO Brewery, 4900 E. Indian School Road in Phoenix.

According to the release, the Pearce Family Foundation wanted to think of a fun and different event that is innately Arizona, and because of the success and overwhelming positive response of last year’s brew, it is fortunate enough to be able to brew another type of beer for this year’s event.

This year the foundation wanted to use local Arizona ingredients for the brew, stated the release.

The Pearce Family Foundation is a public 501(c)(3) charity that exists to provide needed financial assistance, mobilize resources and engage the community to support families with a child facing a chronic or life-threatening illness, according to the release.

All proceeds raised benefit the Pearce Family Foundation’s main initiative, Angels Around Us of AZ, to help ease the burdens of daily life so these courageous families can focus solely on their child’s journey to get well.
