Rock Art Brewery to release limited edition beer to benefit Pete’s Greens

first_imgRock Art Brewery,On March 9, 2011 Rock Art Brewery will be releasing a limited edition beer to raise money for Pete’s Greens in Craftsbury, Vermont. In January a fire erupted and destroyed years of hard work, innovation, and purpose. This handcrafted beer created by brew master Matt Nadeau will be sold throughout the state to restaurants and retailers, raising proceeds and awareness. ‘Matt and I strongly believe in eating local foods, we admire what Pete is doing, and also every person involved in the VT Fresh Network,’ said Renee Nadeau of Rock Art Brewery. The devastating fire reduced the main barn, washhouse, and root cellar to ashes. As fundraising efforts continue, the Barn Raising Brown Ale was created to remind Vermonters that this farm still needs our help. When was the last time you bought a beer and helped rebuild a barn?Vermont Artist Jess Graham donated her time and energy to create a dynamic label with her signature style.  When describing her art Jess fittingly says, ‘I hope it helps shake out the dust in your body, mind, and soul like a good beer and a long hard laugh.’ As a long time supporter of the local food scene she felt a giant void when hearing of the fire and volunteered at once.Rock Art Brewery will be donating all profits from the Barn Raising Brown Ale to Pete’s Greens. Additionally, Calmont Beverage and G. Housen Distributors will both be donating $2 for each case sold to retailers. New England Label out of Barre, VT has given significant discounts on a limited batch of labels. Retailers and restaurants can sell the beer as they wish but are encouraged to use the beer in their own Pete’s Greens promotion. Besides 330 cases of 22oz bottles there will be 8 kegs of the limited libation. For any questions please contact Renee Nadeau at Rock Art Brewery at (802) 888-9400. For wholesale inquiries please contact Calmont Beverage at (802) 223-3281 or G. Housen Distributors at (800) 240-6287.last_img read more

Julian Whigham says he’s been 1 of SU’s best players despite inconsistent performance

first_imgJulian Whigham still gets the same texts every morning from defensive coordinator Chuck Bullough. “It’s your ball,” they’ve read, since well before the season even started.This season, though, it’s yet to be Whigham’s ball. The starting senior cornerback has not recorded an interception, and was the centerpiece of the turning point in Syracuse’s 34-24 loss to Louisiana State for all the wrong reasons.“As a corner, you’re gonna get beat,” Whigham said. “That happens.”Facing a third-and-9 and having seen its lead slimmed to a touchdown difference, the Orange had LSU on the ropes early in the fourth quarter. The next two plays, though, Whigham was beat badly. The first a 51-yarder. The second — a touchdown — Whigham said happened partially because he had yet to recover mentally from the first.On Saturday, Whigham will try to get his season back on track when the Orange (3-1, 1-0 Atlantic Coast) travels to Florida — Whigham’s home state — for a 3:30 p.m. matchup against USF (1-3, 0-1 American Athletic).AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“He definitey took a look at himself this week,” linebacker Zaire Franklin said. “I’m definitely looking forward to seeing Whig progress the rest of the season.”After the LSU game, Bullough refused to discuss Whigham’s two plays, saying, “I don’t ever talk about my players’ mistakes.” But Whigham was up front about them saying, “that was just me hanging on to the last play too long.”Whigham has joked that instead of it being his ball, like Bullough predicts every morning, it has, to this point, been Corey Winfield’s ball. The sophomore cornerback has recorded two interceptions in SU’s first four games.Still Whigham insists that he’s improved this season.He does lead the team in pass breakups with three — nobody else has more than one. And he was named ACC co-defensive player of the week following SU’s win over Wake Forest on Sept. 12, a game in which the defense shut out the Demon Deacons in the second half.Though some parts of Whigham’s first four games have been a slog, to this point, he doesn’t believe they have defined his season.“I’ve been one of the most productive players on the team,” Whigham said. “I’m proud of how I’ve done … I’ve followed through on everything I’ve said.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Related Stories His BallCornerback Whigham impresses on 1st day of campScott Shafer doesn’t guarantee senior Julian Whigham will start at cornerbackcenter_img Published on October 9, 2015 at 2:52 pm Contact Sam: [email protected] | @SamBlum3last_img read more
