Screens ‘n’ Suds mission is to enhance people’s appreciation for craft beer, art, and music while raising money for charity. Screens ‘n’ Suds began in 2009 as a collaboration between Brian Gearing, Sam Verrill, and Ric Hersh. Brian’s idea for a small, start-up poster convention was given new life when a friend suggested the Capital Ale House Music Hall in downtown Richmond, VA. It only made sense to tie beer into the event, Screens ‘n’ Suds was born. Since the inaugural event, SNS has raised over $34,000 for MS Society and other charities, and its list of partnering breweries and artists has grown from 15 to over 35, coming from all over the country: from Berkeley, CA to Omaha, NE to West Harford to CT to Richmond, VA.
