Fundraiser at Root 31

Have you taken a look at our new calendar page? If so, you would have noticed our upcoming event at Root 31! This Thursday, from 6pm till 9pm, Root 31 will be having a time capsule tasting and bottle share where they will also be corking brought in bottles with a fee of $5 that goes directly to us Pickers!

Located at 3349 Monroe Avenue Pittsford, NY 14618

They say: "You are invited to join Root 31 Cafe and Eatery for a great night of rare beers and great tastings. We will be tapping vintage cellared kegs from 2015 of Rodenbach, Stone Xocoveza and Evil Twin Imperial Doughnut Break. Remarkable Liquids will be donating glassware and some rare bottles (Grimm Rainbow Dome, Two Roads 2 Juicy) to be raffled off. The proceeds, along with the $5 corkage fee on all outside bottles will be donated to Flower City Pickers, a local not-for-profit focused on reducing food waste."

We say: Come join us! Come support this awesome establishment that has fresh ingredients and a zero waste policy while also supporting yours truly, Flower City Pickers!!! Bring your home-made wine, beer, cider, whatever to get corked! We'll have a table set up where you can learn more about us and how both FCP and Root31 have a zero waste policy.
