Wicks Brewing Company Cops and Cars Fundraiser

Wicks Brewing Honors Fallen with Craft Beer


Wicks Brewing Company will be hosting the Cops and Cars Fundraiser on February 1st from 11am - 4pm at the brewery in Riverside, CA. The fundraiser benefits Fallen and Injured Riverside Police Officers. This event has something for everyone; live bands, a DJ, BBQ, and if hundreds of gallons of beer aren’t enough, wait until you see the cars and show bikes that will be rolling in.

Wick’s head brewer, Herbie, and assistant brewer, Kass, will be on hand to introduce two new beers in honor of fallen Riverside officer Michael Crain and San Bernardino Deputy Jeremiah MacKay. Both men fatally wounded last February in the line of duty.

Crain, who earned the nickname Freight Crain, because of his powerful yet calm demeanor, is represented as a Chocolate Milk Stout. The label displays a charging bull as a train, and includes his badge number 1226. Ultimately coming in with a bold, yet sweet flavor.

MacKay’s label illustrates a sheepdog playing the bagpipes while wearing a kilt and clearly displaying the deputy’s badge number, paying tribute to his heritage and love of bagpipes. Sheep Dog is a moderately hoppy Irish Red Ale with an American influence.

All of the proceeds and donations raised will go to the Riverside Police Officers Association Assistant Funds. Proceeds of Freight Crain and Sheep Dog sales go to the Crain and MacKay families.
