Beer Run Auction: Brew Your Own Charlottesville Beer

Here is your chance to experience Beer Run like you never have before, while helping to feed the area’s hungry: The Charlottesville 29 Restaurant Auctions. Along with all of the other restaurants in The Charlottesville 29, Beer Run has created a once-in-a-lifetime experience for whoever pledges the highest donation to The Blue Ridge Area Food Bank. Thanks to the generosity of Beer Run and Champion Brewing Company, the entire winning bid goes directly to the food bank. And, thanks to the efficiency of the food bank, each dollar donated creates four meals for the area’s hungry.

The Beer Run signature experience for The Charlottesville 29 Restaurant Auctions:

Brew Your Own Charlottesville Beer

Now open for more than a decade, Beer Run has fueled Charlottesville’s love of good beer — both drinking it and brewing it. The winner of the Beer Run auction will have the chance to enjoy our area’s beer scene in a whole new way: create their own beer for a local brewery, a collaboration with Champion Brewing Company.

In advance of brewing day, the auction winner will discuss ideas with the Champion brewing team, who will help to design and name the beer based on input from the auction winner. When brewing day comes, the auction winner and nine guests will begin their day with breakfast and beer at Beer Run. From there, they will be off to Champion, where they will make the beer with Champion’s brewers. When the work is done, the group will return to Beer Run for a celebratory dinner and beer.

Finally, a few weeks later when the beer is ready, Beer Run will host a happy hour event, open to the public, celebrating Champion’s release of the auction winner’s collaboration. At the release event, the auction winner’s group may enjoy the beer they created, on the house.

Note: The winning bidder will schedule their experience at a time that is mutually convenient for Beer Run and Champion.

Place your bids by email at charlottesville29@gmail.com. Public bidding ends on July 18 when all prior bidders in the Beer Run auction will have a chance to bid again until the highest donation is reached, and a winner is declared. Regular updates of the leading bid will be posted below.

The restaurants of The Charlottesville 29 are creating such extraordinary experiences for The 2019 Charlottesville 29 Restaurant Auctions that many will yield winning bids in the thousands of dollars. Every dollar of each winning bid is a donation made directly to the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank, and each dollar is enough to create four meals for the area’s hungry.

Interested in an experience but lack the budget to win it all by yourself? Form a group of friends to pool resources and bid together. For a dining experience for ten, for example, a $2,000 winning bid can become just $200 per person. So long as your group has one point person responsible for your bidding and donation, once you win, you may divide up your winning donation anyway you like. So, find some friends, help our area’s hungry, and enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience at your favorite Charlottesville restaurant.
