The "world's largest pop-up pub" raised enough money to distribute more than 200,000 meals to hungry Minnesotans.
Oregon-based Deschutes Brewery set up the 402-foot bar in downtown Minneapolis on Sept. 19, serving 177 kegs of craft beer from 40 taps to roughly 12,000 people at the one-day event, an email news release says.
The free event also featured food pairings, live music and beer games.
All proceeds, which totaled $79,700, were donated to local food bank Second Harvest Heartland – that's enough money to distribute more than 239,000 meals into the local community, the release says.
This event took place during Hunger Action Month, which is a nationwide campaign to mobilize the public to take action against hunger, Second Harvest Heartland says. One in 10 Minnesotans don't have enough food to eat, the organization says. (Click here to find out how to donate – $1 provides six meals for the hungry.)
The Deschutes street pub, which has been set up in five cities so far this year, has raised nearly $250,000 for charity. It has two more stops this year, including in Denver on Oct. 17 and Sacramento on Nov. 14.
