The Flying Saucer Draught Emporium is teaming up with Pints for Prostates during a four week “Ultimate European Beer Tour” promotion designed to reach men through the universal language of beer. The 16-location beer pub group will generate prostate cancer awareness from June 3 to July 24 that will culminate in a drawing for a beer trip for two to Prague, Bamberg, Cologne and Brussels.
Flying Saucer will raise funds during the month of June to support the Pints for Prostates awareness mission. Each Wednesday as part of its popular “Brewery Night,” the Flying Saucer will feature a different classic European beer or style of beer with the brand’s signature logo glassware. At 7p.m., 144 people at each location will be able to get the glass of the week and a pour of the featured beer for a great price, with the price of the glass going to support Pints for Prostates. Each glass will come with a raffle ticket for a drawing for an Ultimate European Beer Tour to the Czech Republic, Germany and Belgium taking place Oct. 8-18, 2015.
“This is the fourth year we are teaming up with Pints for Prostates and we are excited to be working with them on this company-wide awareness celebration,” said Keith Schlabs of the Flying Saucer. “Our ‘Beerknurds’ are excited to support a great cause and have the chance to win a beer adventure of a lifetime.”
The special Pints for Prostates Ultimate European Beer Tour is organized by BeerTrips.com. The raffle includes round trip airfare for two from the continental U.S.; nine nights lodging in Prague, Bamberg, Cologne and Brussels; tours of famous breweries; escorted beer hall crawls; guided city tours; stops at castles and monastery breweries; breakfast daily, four beer dinners and four beer lunches; and private coach transportation. For a $10 donation for a single ticket, $25 donation for three tickets or $50 for seven tickets, Flying Saucer patrons can obtain additional entries in the drawing. The total value of the trip for two is estimated at $9,000. The drawing will be held in early July at the Flying Saucer’s Charlotte location. The prize is non-transferable and no cash substitute will be offered. The winner and their guest are responsible for obtaining passports and all trip related costs not outlined above. You must be 21 years old to enter. No purchase is necessary.
Beer brands supporting the promotion at The Flying Saucer will vary by location and date.
“It is great to be working again with The Flying Saucer Draught Emporium because they enable us reach thousands of men with a lifesaving message about the importance of early detection,” said Rick Lyke, a beer journalist who had successful prostate cancer surgery in 2008. “BeerTrips.com has put together the Ultimate European Beer Tour to some of the great beer destinations in the Czech Republic, Germany and Belgium. This is the beer trip of a lifetime and it is for a great cause.”
BeerTrips.com has been providing unique beer travel experiences to destinations around the world since 1998. This special Pints for Prostates group tour is limited to a total of 16 slots. The tour will be hosted by Lyke, the Pints for Prostates founder and a drinks journalist who has been writing about beer, wine and spirits for more than 30 years. He has visited Europe numerous times. Pints for Prostates is a 501(c)3 charity that reaches men through the universal language of beer with an important health message.
“Men are 33 percent more likely to develop prostate cancer than women are to have breast cancer, yet few men know about the critical importance of early detection,” Lyke said. “The support of the Flying Saucer helps us reach an audience that needs to hear our message.”
