Perrin Brewing Company’s specialty Gilda’s Cherry Saison is made once a year to raise awareness and funds for the Gilda’s Club of Grand Rapids. Gilda’s Cherry Saison will be available on tap starting October 7th throughout the end of October and $1 for every pint sold in the pub will be donated to the club.
The Gilda’s Club movement to the Grand Rapids community began in 1996, as it was founded with love by cancer survivors the doors for the Gilda’s Club of Grand Rapids officially opened in February 2001. Their mission is to provide free emotional healthcare to children, adults, families, and friends on any kind of cancer journey or those grieving the loss of someone in their life. The free programs offered are supported entirely through charitable donations and gifts within the local community.

The Gilda’s Cherry Saison is brewed with Saison yeast and loads of Michigan Montmorency cherries. The brew team used a traditional high temperature during fermentation and dry hopped with dried roses. For every pint sold of the Cherry Saison at Perrin Pub, Perrin will donate one dollar to the Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids to help fund the programs offered to those seeking support.
