About Kegs for Colton

Colton is a two year old boy who in January of 2012 was diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy. On April 6, 2012 after months at Childrens Hospital, Colton received a new heart. The maximum life expectancy of his newly transplanted heart is 20 years. Colton's next heart transplant will cost 1 million dollars in today's money. Colton's father is a fellow homebrewer. Each year Kegs for Colton will pick another beneficiary within the homebrewer community.

Please check out the web site and facebook page and help spread the word about this if you like what we are doing.

Thanks guys we are seeing some increased activity on the web site after posting here. :ban:

I can tell you that it means a lot to see how much support there is out there in the Home Brew community. I always knew that it was a great group of people but seeing it first hand makes it feel like we are all one big family.

Awesome cause. I have faith that enough money will be raised for Colton.

I hope things go well for the next surgery and I hope this thread continues to grow. I am going to ask my friends that benefit from drinking my homebrew to contribute next time they get a shipment from me.
