TRAVERSE CITY: Mark your calendars for Wednesday, December 9, and swing by The Little Fleet, Rare Bird Brewpub, and The Filling Station Microbrewery from 6 to 8 p.m. for the third annual Boots for Beers event.

This year, Rare Bird and The Filling Station join The Little Fleet in this local benefit for our neighbors in need. Drop off your boots—new or gently used for men, women, and children—to one of the three breweries and get a free pint of Northern Michigan beer. With each collection site located within walking distance, make it a progressive Boots for Beers outing with friends. A Golden Boot Trophy will be awarded to the Northern Michigan brewery that collects the most boots! No boots? No problem…cash donations are welcome, too!

Keeping warm during the harsh Northern Michigan winters can be tough for anybody. For our neighbors experiencing homelessness, it’s a constant life-and-death battle that can last into May. Help these members of our community by donating much needed boots to Goodwill Northern Michigan’s Street Outreach and Goodwill Inn programs.
