March Feelgood Tap feature at HopCat East Lansing

One of HopCat's favorite partnerships is Feelgood Tap, in which Michigan breweries donate proceeds from a selected beer to be donated to a Michigan nonprofit, rotating monthly. For March, HopCat East Lansing's featured beer is Epic Brewing Co.'s Escape To Colorado IPA. Every pint sold during March will result in a $1 donation to the Capital Area Disability Network, a nonprofit started by two MSU students that works to assist those with disabilities in living a full, independent life through transportation, housing financial support and benefits. Enjoying craft beer while helping out our neighbors is the very definition of win-win.
