The Family Conservancy – Brew for Books

April 15th was the date for Brew for Books, a benefit for The Family Conservancy. The event was held in both virtual and in-person formats. Guests enjoyed a curated beer selection from Martin City Brewing Company and a virtual beer tasting with the company’s co-founder and owner. Musician Ryan Triggs performed, along with his father, Jim Triggs. Brew for Books swag made a lovely souvenir of the event. Proceeds will help provide resources for the youngest Kansas Citians.
