Craft Brewers Auction Off Rare Beers to Benefit Stoneman Douglas Fund

South Floridians are still stepping up to do whatever they can to help the teenage survivors and families of the victims of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.

Now the region's robust brewing community is getting involved with an online auction of rare and vintage bottles of beer. In fact, the benefit campaign has turned into a nationwide effort, with brewers from companies such as Stone, Sierra Nevada, and Dogfish Head joining local breweries such as Biscayne Bay, Devour, and Funky Buddha in donating bottles.

The auction, which goes live for bidding at 1 p.m. today, April 5, is being organized by the Parkland Golf & Country Club, with the help of Oakland Park's Funky Buddha Brewery. Bidding is open to everyone, and the online auction is open through this Sunday. Although anyone can bid on items, the bottle lots will be available for local pickup only because of regulations.

The bottles are being auctioned online via the We Are Stoneman Douglas site, and 100 percent of proceeds will benefit the Broward Education Foundation’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas Fund.

John Linn, marketing director for Funky Buddha, says the people involved in the MSD shooting are neighbors. "We know these people. One of our cofounders lives in Parkland." The people at Funky Buddha donated bottles themselves, as well as a special lot of signed barrel-aged and vintage Funky Buddha beers. In addition, the brewers reached out to other breweries for their help. "We used our connections to make other brewers aware of this fundraiser."

There are two bottle lots: One is for a massive number of rare bottles, with bidding starting at $700; the Funky Buddha-specific lot starts at $150. Other items up for bidding are rare wines, a Rolex wristwatch, a European cruise, a Jimmy Choo handbag, and brunch at the Biltmore.
