The benefits of ale

Here’s where good beer does good things ...

Come Sunday (Jan. 18), New Brunswick’s brewpub, Harvest Moon, will be buzzing as crowds flock to George Street for the fifth annual Jimmy D fundraiser.

It’s a big event that salutes some hard-to fill boots lost by the New Brunswick Fire Department and honors a legacy of putting others first.

Harvest Moon donates a portion of the proceeds from every pint of Jimmy D’s Firehouse Red to the Children’s Burn Camp of the Connecticut Burns Care Foundation, an organization dear to Deputy Fire Chief James D’heron, whose memory the event pays tribute.

D’heron died after saving 15 people in a September 2004 house fire.

Over it's history, the event has raised nearly $50,000 for the charity, and the Irish red ale is so popular it occupies a taphandle at Harvest Moon year-round.
