Suck down as much beer as you can at the Bierbrunnen-New Times Help for Haiti event on Saturday, because half of the profits from sales of Corona, Heineken, and Miller will go to the American Red Cross. Gold Coast Beverage Distributors Inc. is donating the beer and New Times' Street Team will provide freebies, including a raffle for Heat tickets that'll also benefit the Red Cross. Three bands -- Brain Grenade, Octane, and Trukker -- will provide the entertainment for free. There's no cover, and the event begins at 7 p.m. at Beirbrunnen (427 S. Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd., Fort Lauderdale). Call 954-462-1008.
