Get Your Carson King “Iowa Legend” Pilsner
After this week's backlash towards Anheuser-Busch, Glenn Cole and Geneseo Brewing Company in Geneseo, IL decided that they were going to make a beer and name it after Carson King, who's Venmo account is being donated to the University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital.
In a statement issued on their Facebook page, they said that, "We have witnessed the growth through your later social media content and accept your apology. We believe that your selfless act of raising funds for the University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital is truly a noble act. We as an Independent Craft Beer Company would like to continue your efforts by naming a new pilsner "Iowa Legend" and donating a dollar from every pint and 16-ounce can purchased to your cause until the batch is sold out."
Well the time has come and today is the day. The Iowa Legend Pilsner will be available when the Geneseo Brewing Company opens at 4:00 pm. They're also donating a dollar from every pint and 16oz can sold to Carson's V enmo account. Glenn has said that the response has been crazy and he's taking the whole day to get prepared.
