Large group of Ohio brewers coming together in massive fundraiser for one of their own

Brew Good, Do Good.

It’s a phrase tossed around often in the craft brewing industry, and industry known for its altruism and the many ways that the community comes together, not just for many smaller local charities, but also for big catastrophic events such as when legacy craft brewer Sierra Nevada organized a massive fundraiser for the victims of the Camp Fire forest fires in Northern California last fall.

The Ohio brewing community is no exception. When Patrick Gangwer, the head brewer at Granville, Ohio’s Three Tigers Brewing was diagnosed with Stomach/Lower Esophageal Cancer, the community decided to throw a massive fundraiser for him. Gangwer, who also previously served as the brewer at Gahanna’s Kindred Beer, will be starting chemotherapy treatment soon. Patrick is a beloved member of the brewing community, and by all accounts is a good friend, husband and father of three children. Amanda Bruns of Brick and Barrel Brewing in Cleveland called him “a giant teddy bear”.

This Thursday, May 23, participating breweries are going to be donating a portion of their proceeds to Patrick and his family. Each of the participating breweries below will be trying to help make a difference in Patrick Gangwer’s Cancer Fight.
