Members of the Buster Keaton Mural Restoration Committee (from left) Gerald Santana, Lloyd Williams, Kenneth Michael Roberts, Dana Merryday and Suzanne Hueber-Sannes celebrated a night of music and suds as Coast Fork Brewing released its first Imperial IPA, “The General,” on April 23 in honor of Keaton’s locally produced 1926 movie by the same name.
A portion of the sales is being donated to the Buster Keaton mural restoration project, which was just $1,100 shy of reaching its fundraising goal before the event.
More than $200 were collected in donations alone Friday night.
“I thought the party was wonderful and $200 exceeded my expectations,” said Williams.
Coast Fork’s Master Brewer Stephen Mathys created the new IPA while local musician Tobi D’Amore provided the musical backdrop for last week’s fundraiser.
