This past Saturday
Ninkasi Brewing beer was on tap all over Ocean Beach San Diego for “Pints for a Clean Coast”. For every beer sold from noon to 5pm they donated $1 to San Diego Coastkeeper & Wild Coast. They followed it up with the Ninkasi Lumens tour hip hop concert featuring Matt Saffian, David Dalla G and headliner Sapient at Wonderland across from the beach.
A group of Ninkasi beer lovers got together to cruise the neighborhood drinking beer for a good cause and then hitting up the show afterwards. All total they helped raise more than $500. Well done. It’s small groups of dedicated people who get things done.
Their story in pictures is below. Click any image for slideshow.

The combination of hip hop, beer & smoke machine started to make things blurry. We may have traveled through time for a bit…

At the end of the day it’s about sharing with friends.
