The median overall survival rate of children diagnosed with it is nine-12 months, according to the Benny’s World website. In 2011, Benny’s World became a founding member of the DIPG Collaborative, which brings together foundations to efficiently fund and inspire DIPG cancer research. All proceeds from sales of Stew’ Brew are going to the foundation. Bradley said the brewery made a 500-gallon batch of the beer, which is equivalent to 150 cases. He expects the brewery will have 20-30 cases after the event to sell in the tap room over the next few weeks. To create the special brew, Brendan Watters and Bradley worked with the North Urban Brewing Society (NUBS), a homebrew club based in Lake County. The group held a contest among club members, through which it received 28 entries. Watters, Bradley, Goldman and a few others served as the judges who selected the winning beer, crafted by Zach Gelfand of Mundelein. Trevor Patric, president of NUBS, said the club is excited to be involved for the first time with a charitable activity. “This opportunity just came up, and we jumped on it,” Patric said. The people attending the April 7 event varied in age and purpose. There were a few current and former patients of Lurie Children’s Hospital, including 13-yearold Rose, who has been battling brain cancer for 10 years. Two of the Watters’ three other children were on hand to help out. Many Highwood residents and beer enthusiasts were also there to enjoy and support the brewing company, which opened its taproom at 523 Bank Lane, Highwood, in May 2017. Both the Watters family and Bradley live in Lake Forest. Entertainment was provided by the Swing Sonatas, a jazz band of Lake Forest High School students Luke Guilson, Charlotte Moore, Cathal O’Sullivan, Katie Pierce and Mark Smirnov. visit us online at Their involvement came because Moore’s family is friends with the Watters family. The band has been playing together for two years, having met through the high school’s orchestra and wind ensemble. They said they were playing for three hours at the event, which gave them the unique opportunity to go through all of their songs. The Left Bank of Lake Forest brought its food truck to the event while Bent Fork Bakery of Highwood donated a cake in honor of Benny’s World and also Benny’s birthday, which is April 11. Once Stew’s Brew sells out, people can enjoy Kings and Convicts’ other original beers at their tap room, Wednesdays through Sundays, and from approximately 120 vendors throughout the Chicago area, including Binny’s Beverage Depot, Sunset Foods and numerous restaurants and bars.
