Pour For a Cure participants sample 27 brews
Lo and behold, there was a light at the end of the tunnel on Thursday, thanks to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Young Professionals Board.
In a move to spare fellow workaholics from another night of wintery confinement, the masses arrived at PPG Wintergarden in anticipation of Pour For a Cure, ready to sample their way through 27 brews.
“We just got started,” laughed Michael Heard, surveying ales, pilsners, lagers, stouts and everything in between.
Possessing a stronghold on the popular vote, an informal survey found a landslide for Wells & Young's Banana Bread spiced ale, “It's sweet but stouty at the same time,” shared Courtney Roberts, although Samuel Smith's Organic Chocolate Stout was also getting its fair share of love and attention.
Amongst the crowd were YP board prez Justin Conrad, Allison Jockel, Dan Coast, Ryan McKenna, Lindsay Weichler, Alyson Joyce and Andrew Rossi.
