BURLINGTON, VT — The Vermont Lake Monsters, Two Brothers Tavern and Fiddlehead Brewing Company are proud to announce a total charitable donation of $1,797 to the UVM Children’s Hospital through the sale of the Two Brothers signature Lake Monsters Hot Dog along with pints of Fiddlehead’s Mastermind Double IPA.

As part of the Lake Monsters and Two Brothers creation of the first “Official Outpost of the Vermont Lake Monsters” in June at the Tavern’s Addison County location, Two Brothers donated $1 from each of the 309 Lake Monsters hot dogs sold during the summer.

In addition, Two Brothers also donated $1 for each of 744 pints of Mastermind Double PA sold (with Fiddlehead also matching the $1 donation for every pint sold at Two Brothers) for a total donation of $1,053 from Two Brothers and the $1,797 combined between Two Bros and Fiddlehead.

“We’re thrilled to have Two Brothers Tavern and Fiddlehead Brewing team-up to raise funds for the UVM Children’s Hospital,” Lake Monsters VP C.J. Knudsen said. “What a great cause in our community and so glad that the Lake Monsters are a part of it.”

“Two Brothers Tavern has had the honor to partner with many different businesses over the years to support our neighbors in need and this partnership, in particular, is very near and dear to our hearts,” said Two Brothers Tavern owner/GM Holmes Jacobs. “To be able to join forces with the Lake Monsters and Fiddlehead, two outstanding Vermont businesses, to support the UVM Children’s Hospital, is a beautiful collaboration on so many levels.  We are honored to be a part of it!”

Fiddlehead Brewing Company owners, Matt and Amy Cohen, started Team Mastermind in 2015 as part of their desire to be business owners engaged in their community and Mastermind Double IPA was created with this goal in mind. 25% of all Mastermind are directed to the Team Mastermind Fund, which provides charitable grants to organizations that support pediatric health and broad community wellness. To date, Team Mastermind has raised more than $600,000 through continued support of patrons and strong account partnerships like their special partnership with Two Brothers.

As the Official Outpost of the Vermont Lake Monsters (and our fans), Two Brothers hosted a kickoff event at the Tavern last June along with viewing parties for eight of the Lake Monster FCBL games during the summer.
