Burn Center Taps interest of Rock Bottom Brewery

by Hennepin Healthcare

Tuesday, February 26 from 6-8 pm
Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery
800 LaSalle Plaza, Minneapolis

Rock Bottom Restaurant and Brewery in Minneapolis will be hot tonight (Tuesday, February 26) when they host a party from 6-8 pm to raise awareness and support for Hennepin County Medical Center’s (HCMC) Burn Unit.

At its locations across the country, the restaurant and brewery  releases their seasonal Fire Chief Ale each year by recognizing the contributions of local fire departments and related charities like HCMC’s Burn Center. This is the sixth year they’ve selected the Burn Center, and it’s also the sole beneficiary of tonight’s charitable party in Minneapolis.

Representatives from HCMC, some burn victims,  and local firefighters will be present at the party selling donation slips for $1, $5 and $10. In addition, HCMC’s Burn Center will also receive .25 cents from every pint of Fire Chief Ale purchased. The party is open to the public and attendees can sample the beer and taste some of the new menu items offered by Rock Bottom.

Rock Bottom’s menu, which features “hot” items like fire-grilled chicken, smoked red pepper sauce and blackened seasonings, kicks off the restaurant’s national promotion that includes Tapping Parties the week of February 24.  A portion of sales from its new menu goes to local fire departments and related charities during this time, adding to the more than 2 million dollars the restaurant has already raised.

Rock Bottom Restaurant & Breweries are polished,  casual dining establishments featuring guest-focused service, high-quality food and a unique selection of handcrafted, brewed on-site beers. The Rock Bottom menu features a wide variety of items including starters, house favorites, burgers and pizzas. Rock Bottom operates in 17 states from coast to coast. For additional details about Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery please visit: www.rockbottom.com.
