On Saturday, July 28, Cerberus Brewing Company will host a benefit for one of its employees. Assistant brewer Taylor Donner was severely injured in a bicycle crash on July 22, breaking his femur.

“I'm just lucky it wasn’t worse," says Donner. “They originally thought both [my femur and pelvis] were broken…They’re expecting that to get the [femur] back to where it needs to be.”

While Donner recovers, he will be unable to perform his job as assistant brewer for at least four to six weeks, according to head brewer/co-owner Joshua Adamski. To help Donner cover costs, Cerberus will be donating a dollar from every pint sold that day, then matching that number with company funds. The benefit will run 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. that day, all of Cerberus’ operating hours.

Donner did not learn about the benefit until late on Monday, July 23rd. He describes his reaction as not so much humbled as shocked.

"I greatly appreciate the fact that people are sharing it and are planning to go," he says. "I just brew, and I've gotten to know a lot of great people... I didn’t know so many people cared.”
