Art, Music and Craft Beer Come Together to Provide Feast for the Senses for a Good Cause

HOUSTON, September 2, 2008 - In its ongoing effort to keep Houston funky, Saint Arnold Brewing Company ( is sponsoring the inaugural Orange Show Foam Raiser. The event, scheduled for September 6th, will raise funds to support the concert series presented by the nonprofit Orange Show Center for Visionary Art.

The inaugural Orange Show Foam Raiser will be held at the Orange Show Monument in Houston's east end -- one of the most important folk art environments in the United States. Located at 2402 Munger Street in Houston, The Orange Show Monument was built single handedly by the late Jefferson Davis McKissack, a Houston postal worker.

"Saint Arnold has a long association with the Orange Show and we are proud to be the official beer for events held at the Orange Show monument," said Brock Wagner, founder and brewer of Saint Arnold Brewing. "We are looking forward to this mash-up of eye-opening visual art, ear-opening music and full-flavored craft beer."

Saint Arnold Brewing's distinctive tie-died 1957 Bentley is an annual entrant in the Orange Show's Art Car Parade. That is just one of many programs and events supported by the Orange Show Center for Visionary Art. The organization is devoted to preserving and presenting works of extraordinary imagination and providing people the opportunity to express their personal artistic vision.
The inaugural Orange Show Foam Raiser will feature music by the Sideshow Tramps and The Grass Skirts. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Refreshments will be free. A special pint glass will be available for purchase at the event.
