Hey everyone, the local brewery Tin Roof will be turning 2 years old this Friday and they are planning a party to benefit Cancer Services of Greater Baton Rouge. They have definitely come a long way over those two years with their third full-release beer, a canning line, and now two different seasonal offerings. The food trucks will be there as well, so if you can make, it it's good food and beer for a good cause. Here's the full press release:

Baton Rouge, La. - November 2, 2012 – Cancer Services of Greater Baton Rouge will be
helping Tin Roof Brewing Co. celebrate their 2nd anniversary with a special Food Truck

John Peak, Marketing Director for Tin Roof Brewing Co., explains, “We love being
a part of this community. The opportunity to raise money for Cancer Services while
celebrating our 2 year anniversary is really something special.” In addition to their

with one of Tin Roof’s five brews. Participating Food Trucks include Taco de Paco,
CURBSIDE, Dolce de Vita Pizza, FRESH, Three Bones and Pullin’ Pork. A family-
friendly event, all ages may attend, though only those 21 years or older can receive a
