Just months after their first successful competition, local breweries have once again requested to team up with the Coastal Bend Blood Center to compete in the Battle of the Breweries to see who will be the new Blood Pint Champion.

The goal is for local breweries to see who can bring in the most blood donations on Saturday.

Lazy Beach Brewing will be defending their title as Blood Pint Champion from earlier this year.

During summer months the Coastal Bend Blood Center struggles to maintain their blood supply. Many of their donations come from high school students during the school year. The Battle of the Breweries is your chance to donate to a good cause and have some fun while doing it!
