It all started seven years ago, Brendan Keeley tasted his first barrel aged beer: the Abyss from Deschutes. From that point on, Keeley was hooked. He started to taste beers from all over; the Bourbon Barrel Quad from Boulevard, Sucaba and Parabola from Firestone Walker, and Uncle Jacob’s Stout from Avery, just to name a few. As they are typically high gravity, Brendan would buy them and set them aside to drink with friends on a special occasion.

Soon, his beer collection grew so large, he didn't know what to do with it. So, he did what any nice person would do, he invited 15 friends over to drink beer (and make room for MORE beer!). He called the gathering, “Brendan’s Bourbon Barrel Beer Bonanza” and really the rest is history... What started out as a group of friends sitting around the ‘ol picnic table passing bottles late into the night, turned into an anual tradition that grew so large, Brendan could no longer host the event at his home.

Now in its 5th year and with more than 100 friends, neighbors, and family anxiously waiting for this
year’s B^7 it made sense to take it up a notch and add another “B” to the Bonanza: “Benefit.” Brendan's wife,
Julie, sits on the board of Re:Vision, a non-profit working to improve access to healthy food in the
Westwood neighborhood on the Southwest side of Denver. Westwood is classified as a “food desert”
as there are no grocery stores in the neighborhood. Re:Vision has helped 600+ residents plant gardens
on their property to supplement their diet and has recently opened a co-op grocery store owned by the
neighborhood itself. Find out more at www.revision.coop.

This year, on December 2, 2017, in partnership with Re:Vision, join Brendan and Julie for Brendan’s Bourbon Barrel Beer Bonanza at RISE Westwood to raise money in support of Re:Vision’s great work in the community. It’d be great to have your help!
