— Angry Erik Brewing will be hosting its Annual Memorial Day Weekend “Support our Troops” Pint-Raiser Thursday, May 24 through Sunday, May 27, 2017. For every pint sold at the brewery, Angry Erik Brewing will donate $1 to Uncle Sam’s Avengers Motorcycle Club, Inc.

“This fundraiser has grown each year, so we expect this year to be our biggest turnout yet,” Brewery Co-Owner Heide Hassing said. “Hopefully we get some nice weather Saturday or Sunday and the Avengers can do a motorcycle ride up here!”

The Avengers' North Jersey Chapter supports the local community by organizing and participating in events that assist active duty military, veterans, law enforcement officers, firefighters, Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) and children or families in need of help.

Last year Angry Erik donated $566 to The Avenger’s North Jersey Chapter. In previous years, the brewery donated $485 to the Kosa Veterans Center in Franklin; $387 to the Sussex County Community College Student Veterans Emergency Relief ; and $327 to the Wounded Warrior Project.
