Yakima pub, breweries hold ‘Frenzgiving’ donation drive for Northwest Harvest

YAKIMA, Wash. — Public House of Yakima – East is hosting a “Frenzgiving” event Thursday night to raise money and get food donations for Northwest Harvest.

“This special holiday offering is a cornucopia of tropical & stone fruit flavors, with prominent notes of mango, pineapple, peach, necatrine, and lychee on a gravy-smooth palate,” brewery officials said in a news release.

Public House of Yakima events coordinator Keely Gorski said people can try it on tap or buy a six-pack featuring the Frenzgiving Brew and beer from each of the other breweries. She said $3 from each six-pack purchase will be donated to Northwest Harvest.

“People should come tonight, one, to celebrate with friends and local breweries,” Gorski said. “Also, to help spread the word, raise awareness of Northwest Harvest and ultimately give back to the community.”

Additionally, for every item of nonperishable food donated, attendees will get a ticket to enter in a raffle to win merchandise from the various breweries.
