World of Beer Wellington Hosts Local "Brew"phoria Friday

April 1 isn't all about fools and pranks. For beer lovers near Wellington, it's a night to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society with World of Beer's "Brew"phoria event. It all goes down starting at 6 p.m.

Though World of Beer is known for its breadth of product, for this event, it will bring out 50 local kegs, including specialty beers from local brewers who barely ever make it out of their respective taprooms.

Special releases include Accomplice Brewery and Ciderworks 10.5 percent alcohol-by-volume imperial cinnamon cider Cidewinder, Copperpoint Brewing Co.'s Mocha B. Rabbit Nitro, Funky Buddha Brewery's Millions of Peaches, and the incredible Confused in the Morning from Saltwater Brewery, its Belgian tripel aged on Belgian waffles, maple syrup, and coffee.

"All kegs are tapped at 6 p.m., all local taps, 15 breweries involved with all reps in-house," says Holly Mauser, World of Beer Wellington's general manager. "Limited releases and treated kegs just for us... [it's a] superawesome local beer event."

Live music, raffles, and giveaways round out the festivities, so expect to bring a couple of dollars to enter to win some beer-themed swag. Raffle monies benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, so you're also helping those in need.
