We’re thrilled to announce that Honoring Choices will be the featured non-profit organization at Fat Pants Brewing on May 19: $1 from every pint sold from 12-5pm will be generously donated to further our vision that advance care planning is embraced as common practice within all communities we serve.


Come out, enjoy some delicious brews, and help make a difference in our community. Your support means the world to us and allows us to continue our mission to educate, empower, and inspire individuals to engage in comprehensive advance care planning so their healthcare preferences for the future will be expressed and honored.


Invite your friends, family, and neighbors to join in on the fun and support a great cause together. Let’s raise a glass to making a change! 🍻
