When: Sun., Aug. 24, 12-5 p.m. 2014
This Sunday, the Bay Area’s craft beer and punk rock communities will gather at the Linden Street Brewery (95 Linden St., Oakland) to celebrate the life of one of their own. Fraggle, the Beer Revolution cofounder who passed away suddenly last month after suffering a stroke, was a punk rock diehard, a noted vegan, and a craft-beer evangelist who worked to make good brews accessible to everyone. As Mike Brinkman, Linden Street employee, longtime Fraggle acolyte, and the event’s organizer put it: “He brought craft beer to the people.” For FraggleFest, a $10 concert ticket (the proceeds of which will benefit Rocket Dog Rescue) gets you in the door for a show featuring local punk acts such as Fracas, No Limbs, and Kicker. More than twenty West Coast breweries will be on hand to pour their beers, and a vegan-friendly food lineup includes Souley Vegan, Hella Vegan Eats, and Fist of Flour Pizza. A portion of the beer and food proceeds will be donated to Fraggle’s family to help cover medical and funeral expenses.
