SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 28th - UACA hosted its first ever "Pour Out" event where members poured out their beer to raise money for Ukraine.
The recent purchase of select American breweries by Russian business Oasis Beverage has been tough for some drinkers to stomach.
For every Pabst Blue Ribbon or Schmidt's purchased and poured out, a $1 credit was put toward a Ukrainian beer (Львівське (Lvivske) and Оболонь (Obolon)).
It was a fun time for a great cause.
