Saint Arnold backs book drive for Craft Beer Week

With American Craft Beer Week in full swing from Chicago to Seattle the number of events is dizzying and local. But here’s one worth special mention:

Saint Arnold Brewing Company, Texas’ oldest craft brewery, will open its doors Tuesday evening May 18th for a book drive to benefit nearby Crawford Elementary School.

“I think of every week as American Craft Beer Week, but I appreciate the focus that this week brings to everything we do all year,” said Brock Wagner, founder and brewer of Saint Arnold Brewing. “The book drive is a perfect marriage of great beer and community.”

Saint Arnold will open the doors to those who donate at least two new or gently used books appropriate for children between the ages of five and 10. As a thank you and to celebrate American Craft Beer Week, donors can sample some of Saint Arnold’s tasty beers and root beer. The book drive for Crawford Elementary School will run from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 18th at Saint Arnold Brewing Company, 2000 Lyons Avenue in Houston. Bilingual editions are especially appreciated.
