The First Baptist Church of Clarion will also be attending this event to hand out bottles of water. All of the proceeds from registration for the “Clarion Cheers and Beers Walk of 2019” will go to benefit the free fireworks display for the upcoming “I Love Clarion Celebration”, which is set to take place at the Clarion University Memorial Stadium on July 3, 2019. Those who are interested in learning more about the upcoming charity walk can contact the Clarion Area Chamber of Business & Industry.
Means Cork & Cap is a Clarion business that provides home brewing supplies for local customers. Established in 2005, the business was purchased by Ken Means in 2013 and still provides the same quality supplies that it has given customers for more than 10 years.
“We always try to take part in charitable events,” says Means. “It’s been this way since we took over the company, and we wouldn’t change it for anything. We are so pleased to be a part of this upcoming walk and want to encourage all of our local customers to join us for a fun, community event.”
For this event, Means Cork & Cap will have samples of wine and beer, each made from ingredient kits/ingredients they sell, as well as complimentary hors d’oeuvres. They will also be giving away a wine equipment kit during this event. Guests will enter the giveaway in the store, located at 246 W Main St, Clarion, and will need to provide their name and contact information, preferably an email address, so the winner can be contacted.
Those who are interested can learn more on company Facebook page for Means Cork & Cap. Means states that those who are interested in learning more about home brewing can also visit their website to look at the products and supplies that they offer, or to learn more about making their own beer and wine.
Ken Means gained retail experience with a family store in Crown, Pennsylvania before purchasing Means Cork and Cap. He states that the company’s goal now is to offer the best in customer service to their valued customers and to give them the personal service that they typically cannot get from online home brew retailers. They are always available to answer questions and to help their customers get started with their own home brewing process.
