Screens ‘n’ Suds’ mission is to enhance appreciation for craft beer and art while raising money for charity. “Screens” as in screen printing—posters, t-shirts and the like ‘n’ “Suds” as in beer—malt, hops, yeast and water. Since 2009, Screens ‘n’ Suds activities have generated over $50,000 for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and other charities through sales of beer-inspired art donated by artists from around the country, MS Walks, beer dinners, and events.
Saturday 11/3/2012 is the Screens ‘N’ Suds Big Event from 4pm-9pm at Gallery5

- In celebration of Screens ‘n’ Suds 4th year, the 2012 fall print edition theme will be “Quad.” In Suds terms, Quad is short for Quadrupel, a trappist style strong ale of great strength and flavor.
