Fundraiser for Ben Flerchinger

Benvention is a beer brewed in honor of Ben Flerchinger. It was an idea for a beer that he never got to brew.

The first batch was brewed at Lucky Lab by assistant brewer Martin Maywalt with Bolt Minister of 54’40°, Van Having of Gigantic Bewing, Patrick Barnes of Kell’s Brewpub, Preston Weesner of Holiday Ale Festival, Dave Fleming of Coin Toss, Nicole Kasten of Beer Connections and Margaret Flerchinger, Ben’s wife.

Ben Flerchinger

Benvention will be tapped on Thursday, July 6th at 5pm in honor and memory of Portland brewer, Ben Flerchinger.  Many will remember Ben as a kind and gentle soul who spent years brewing at Lucky Lab followed by work at Gigantic and 54-40.

A Dry Hopped Imperial Mild comes in at 5.4% ABV and 50 IBU’s.  Benvention is on a rotating brewery schedule since Ben had such a big impact on so many breweries; this one is brought to you by Coin Toss Brewing.
Proceeds from Benvention will go to cover Ben’s medical bills
