ROANOKE (WSLS 10) - On August 27, Deschutes Brewery brought its 400-foot bar to downtown Roanoke.

During the one-day event, the brewery says it poured 241 kegs to about 22,000 people. It says all of the event's proceeds went to area nonprofit organizations, totaling more than $81,000.

Primary nonprofit partners included Roanoke Outside Foundation, Blue Ridge Land Conservancy and Feeding America Southwest Virginia. Other partners were Pathfinders for Greenways, Roanoke IMBA, Clean Valley Council, Leap for Local Food, Family Promise of Greater Roanoke, and Bradley Free Clinic of Roanoke Valley.

Deschutes says more than 278 volunteers and 30 nonprofits were represented and it was blown away by the response from its 'home away from home.'
