ASTORIA — Astoria Brewing Co. will hold a live art auction and benefit Saturday at 5 p.m. to raise money for a former employee’s organ transplant.
Zac Caswell has worked for the brewery since 2015, most recently as the establishment’s head brewer. He is no longer able to work as he waits for a liver transplant.
The event will be held at Astoria Brewing Co.’s Taproom on 12th Street. All beer and wine sold Saturday will go toward Caswell’s medical expenses and recovery. Caswell’s art will be auctioned off to raise money for living expenses.
The brewery will sell $50 raffle tickets. The winner will get first pick of any art piece. Caswell’s art is on display in the taproom.
