The Bruery, craft brewery located in Placentia, raised more than $15,000 at an exclusive beer tasting event in Anaheim this month to benefit the Free Wheelchair Mission and the Boys & Girls Club of America.

Free Wheelchair Mission, an Irvine-based organization that helps disabled people in poor or developing countries by providing wheelchairs, will receive $7,500 of the total profits and the rest will go to the Boy & Girls Club to help provide a safe place for children to grow in the community.

The Reserve Society, a group of the Bruery’s fans and craft beer enthusiasts, bought tickets for the annual beer tasting event that featured a long list of The Bruery’s classic ales, including Chocolate Rain, Black Tuesday, Papier, and even new beers like Otiose and Smoking Wood.

More than 400 people attended both sessions of the event where they had the opportunity to sample ten of the Bruery’s beers along with food from Beachwood BBQ.  

The event also featured beers from other local and craft breweries, including Hangar 24 Brewing, TAPS Brewery, Eagle Rock Brewery and Bootlegger’s Brewery.
