Lakewood Brewing Co. is giving fans an opportunity to preview a new beer that won’t be produced for wide release until March 2016.
All Call, the brewery’s new 5 percent ABV Kölsch, is “dedicated to the hard work and dedication of police and firefighters everywhere,” according to a press release. In that spirit, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this beer benefit the Guns & Hoses Foundation of North Texas. This organization supports the families of fallen police and firefighters and Lakewood.
On Saturday, Sept. 19, the foundation hosted the 14th Annual Guns & Hoses Boxing Tournament at the Allen Event Center. All Call was served, and 100 percent of the funds raised at the event were donated to the benevolent fund, which provides monetary assistance to families of first responders who sacrificed their lives in the line of duty.
For those not able to attend, All Call will also be available on a very limited basis on draft at the 2015 State Fair of Texas.
