A different B-and-B

Not bed-and-breakfast in this case but rather two subjects with much personal appeal for me: Beer and Birds.

I won’t make it but if you happen to find yourself in Maui next weekend, you might want to catch a little fundraiser at the Maui Brew Pub where half the proceeds from beer sales on the night of June 24 will go to Maui Forest Bird Recovery Project, according to an article at Mauinow.com.

Hawaii’s endemic birds are, and have been, in trouble for years. Such is the reality of mixing island species with human activities though. The ongoing work of the project aims to “develop and implement techniques that recover Maui’s endangered birds and to restore their habitats through research, development, and application of conservation techniques,” according to their website. Sounds reasonable to me.

By sipping a cool microbrew or two and lending a non-government mandated hand toward aiding a worthwhile project, I can’t think of a better way to spend an evening. Only wish I was there.
