On February 21st, Upper Dublin Lutheran Church partnered with Forest & Main Brewing Company to host the first ever "Brewing for the Greater Good" event, a beer tasting to benefit the Mattie Dixon Community Cupboard in Ambler. There were one-hundred people in attendance and we raised over $3000 for the food cupboard. Dan Endicott, co-owner of Forest & Main led the beer tasting. Ron Maltin, president of the Mattie Dixon board, and his spouse Heather brought greetings and thanks from the Cupboard. This partnership developed out of our monthly God on Tap gatherings at Forest & Main.
