Bremerton, WA – March 1, 2012 – Today Silver City Brewery is proud to introduce Saint Florian India Pale Ale. Saint Florian, the patron saint of firefighters, is now the namesake of a northwest IPA designed to raise money for Washington State Council of Fire Fighters Benevolent Funds. Part of the proceeds from each bottle and keg of Saint Florian IPA sold goes directly to the Benevolent Fund where the beer is purchased in the region.

Saint Florian IPA enables us to extend that relationship to other areas around the Puget Sound.”

Silver City Brewery has helped raise money for the Professional Fire Fighters of Kitsap County Benevolent fund every year since 2001 through their annual Oktoberfest Celebration.

Saint Florian IPA will raise funds wherever it is sold in Washington. Of this Brewmaster Don Spencer said “We are very honored to present Saint Florian IPA as way to help raise funds for the Benevolent Fund around the Puget Sound.

    Yikes on the label if you know the history. But it is for a good cause. St. Florian, the patron saint of a few things was murdered by the Romans.

    I lived in Sankt Florian, Austria one summer. It’s really close to Linz. Awful story about how he became a martyr/saint, but I’ll try the beer. Like I said, it’s for a good cause.
