St. Petersburg, Florida: Flying Boat Brewing Co., St. Petersburg’s newest craft brewery, is hosting its grand opening celebration Saturday, Aug. 19, with a portion of the proceeds to benefit Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital and Friends of Strays.

St. Petersburg, FL, August 18, 2017 --( Flying Boat is closing out its Pier Beer and Grand Opening week by celebrating all day and keeping it local with live music, food trucks, fun games, amazing craft beer and more. The day also features a free microchipping clinic in the afternoon in partnership with Friends of Strays and the Pet Loss Center and a mayoral proclamation for the organization from St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman.

“We believe in the power of great community and great beer,” said Joshua Perian, managing partner. “That’s why a portion of the proceeds of every beer sold here benefits the Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, and that’s why we’re donating $1 for every IPA sold from 2 to 6 p.m. to the Friends of Strays organization in our special ‘IPAs for Strays’ event during grand opening.”

Local bands the Rockin’ Raccoons and Luna Blue, along with Florida DJ Dan Carraway, will be performing, and Urban Brew & BBQ, Rocky’s Wood-Fired Pizza, Holy Cow Kettle Corn and the St. Pete Taco Lady will be serving up local eats.

About Flying Boat Brewing Co.
Flying Boat Brewing Co., established in 2017, is an independent craft brewery and tasting room in St. Petersburg, Florida, founded to brew creative, pioneering, local beer. Flying Boat Brewing Co. was inspired by the local history of St. Petersburg – namely, of the historic first commercial flight that took place here on the Benoist XIV seaplane, nicknamed the “Flying Boat.” The brewery pays homage to those first steps into commercial flight by boldly brewing new and exciting beer in the cradle of modern aviation. And at Flying Boat, we’re more than just beer. We believe in giving back to the community where we reside, which is why a portion of the proceeds of every beer sold in the tasting room goes to benefit the local Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital: Drink local. Drink charitably. Drink Flying Boat.
