Screens ‘n’ Suds began in 2009 as a way for Brian Gearing and Ric Hersh to finally get the poster show they wanted in Richmond, VA.  When Capital Ale House was chosen as the venue for the event, it made sense to invite a few breweries to join in and slake the thirst of the art lovers in attendance.  Since that inaugural event, Screens ‘n’ Suds has raised over $100,000 for MS Society and local charities, and its list of partnering breweries and artists has grown from 15 to over 50, coming from all over the country, from Berkeley, CA to Omaha, NE, to just across the river on Manchester Island.

Last year, Screens ‘n’ Suds collaborated with Richmond’s Hardywood Park and Itty Bitty Press to create Quadrawine, its inaugural small batch beer. This year’s list of collaborators has expanded to five, and plans are in the works for bigger and better projects as Screens ‘n’ Suds pushes forward into the second half of its first decade of celebrating beer and art for charity.

The Screens ‘n’ Suds 2013 Series continues Sam Verrill‘s mission to marry beautiful art to great causes.  Five years ago, he launched Screens ‘N’ Spokes, an art show and bike team, to benefit the Greater Delaware Valley chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.  To-date, over 130 prints have been produced between the Spokes and Suds series, and including events, the team has raised over $160,000 for the MS Society.  In 2008 and 2009, he worked with the Independents Coffee Cooperative of Philadelphia to curate the Beans ‘N’ Screens show to benefit the fair-trade Cooperativa San Fernando.
