Let’s get ready to rumble Birmingham!

Every Wednesday during the month of January, the Cahaba Brewing Company will be holding Goodwill Game Nights benefiting  Birmingham Audubon.

Tonight’s Wednesday night January 9th game?  Rock’em Sock’em Robots.

Enjoy great beer for a good cause and come out and play for a chance to win gift cards and more from Cahaba Brewing while supporting Birmingham Audubon—Alabama’s leading nonprofit promoting conservation and a greater knowledge of birds, their habitats, and the natural world.

Jump in, Birdingham! How Goodwill Game Night works
