Can Do Multiple Sclerosis

Can Do Multiple Sclerosis

Proceeds from Meet the Brewers 2012 will go towards Can Do Multiple Sclerosis. Can Do Multiple Sclerosis is a national non-profit organization that provides innovative lifestyle empowerment programs for people living with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). The organization takes a “whole picture” approach to develop experimental and personalized programs to help people living with MS, and their families, gain the knowledge and develop the skills, tools, and confidence to manage the disease and live the best lives possible.

MS is an inflammatory disease that affects the brain and spinal column. Because of this, just about any neurological symptoms can develop and in the long term, MS can lead to physical and/or cognitive disability. There is no cure. Current treatments help to restore loss of function, help to prevent future attacks, and hopefully prevent disabilities.

This is where Can Do Multiple Sclerosis can help people living with MS. So help us help Can Do Multiple Sclerosis by attending Meet the Brewers 2012 and having a good time.

    You might get more awareness for events like this if you add a Facebook share button.

  2. Jen says:

    Hi Peter! So the ticket price is for beer only? Food would be in addition to the ticket price?

  3. Fred says:

    Only 2 weeks and counting! Still waiting to hear from Carolyn and Alison @ Tied House about the volunteer sign ups. Are you working on that? Last year was a blast.

    • Peter says:

      Fred – I am working with Tied House, yes, on planning this event. However, Tied House is organizing the volunteers. As soon as they let me know that they’re accepting volunteers, I’ll make an announcement.

  4. dan satterthwaite says:

    Oak aged Imperial Pils and Weizenbock plus a Golden Export to wash it all down! Looking forward to it!

  5. Anna says:

    Is there anything offered for the designated drivers with their admission ticket? Do they get soda or anything? Thanks.

  6. bobby says:

    what does $5 get me as a designated driver? It already sucks enough being the DD, but paying to babysit…i mean hang out w/ friends while they get to drink? ehhh…

  7. Michael says:

    The address above just shows up as an area full of car repair and car recycling areas in google map. Is this correct?

    • Peter says:

      Hermitage Brewing is located towards the back of the industrial park. The event is being held at the production brewery and not the brewpub. Hope to see you there.

  8. Jonathan Mosney says:

    You should invite out the Drunk Monkey food truck from Santa Cruz: 831-818-9523.

  9. Paul says:

    You really should consider doing this downtown next time so that folks can use public transportation and you wouldn’t have to have so many people settle for being DDs, and you also would not exclude people who don’t own cars. This location is just not accessible to people not driving. Thanks.

  10. Melissa says:

    Is this going to be inside or outside???

    • Peter says:

      This event will be held rain or shine. There will be indoor and outdoor spaces for the festival but a great amount of the festival will be held indoors. Of course the food trucks will be outside but not too far from cover. I hope you will be able to attend the festival!

  11. Sue says:

    I followed the link for the 2012 festival and it does not appear the website has been updated. When will the site be updated for this years event?


  12. Joey says:

    This is a do-not-miss event, for lovers of good beer & food. We had a great time last year!

  13. Peter says:

    The #68 bus runs from Diridon Station downtown (Caltrain), runs down 2nd St. (Light Rail) and drops you off at the corner of Monterey and Phelan with the event just around the corner. Pretty easy to get to the event if you are not driving!

  14. Arie says:

    Woohoo! looking forward to that one..

  15. Matt says:

    Just to clarify, admission is with online ticket only or can be paid at the door?

  16. Stefanie says:

    I am going with a group of beer drinking friends, but I do not like beer. Will there be non-beer drinks (e.g. wine or cocktails) that I could get for the $25 fee?

  17. Erica says:

    Can I purchase tickets at the door? if so will the price change
