"Spirits for Small Change" Charity Event, July 6th BrewDog Roppongi

日本語は以下に続きます (Japanese follows English)
Today, we’re thrilled to be able to announce details of a special event that we are organizing in the heart of Tokyo on July 6th. There are a few things that make this event rather special, the most important of which is the fact that all proceeds will be donated to charity.

Carillon Kodomo Center’ was established in 2004 as the first children’s shelter in Japan. The Center takes care of children – most of them in their late teens – who have suffered prolonged neglect or abuse at home. With a focus on nurturing self-reliance, the Center hosts facilities for both boys and girls at various undisclosed locations in Tokyo (to protect the safety of the children). The staff at the shelters surround the children with the care and support they lacked at home and prepare them for an independent life. We are very happy to be able to support their efforts in a small way with this, the first “Spirits for Small Change” fundraiser.

The event will take place at BrewDog Roppongi in Tokyo on Sunday, July 6th from 3 to 5pm. In addition to a welcome beer from the BrewDog range and a plate of craft food, participation includes 5 whiskies and/or other spirits, one of which is the special “Four Decades” Karuizawa charity bottling (check this for more information). The other four drams can be chosen freely from a wide range of whiskies and other spirits donated by distillers, retailers, bars and collectors worldwide. Participation is 5,000 yen and advance registration will include a raffle ticket, giving you the chance to win some really interesting bottles. A few rare collectables will be auctioned off live at the event as well. Space is limited so we strongly recommend you book your ticket in advance. Our friends over at Malt City are taking care of this for us, so head on over to their site!
