Last Friday, Captain EMT Matthew Renaud, 35, of Station 51;  Firefighter EMT Robert Garner, 29, of Station 68; Probationary Firefighter Anne Sullivan, 24, of Station 68; and Engineer Operator EMT Robert Bebee, 41, of Station 51 fell in the line of duty in a massive 5-alarm fire at the Southwest Inn on the Southwest Freeway near Hilcroft.

Tonight, two Houston area breweries are raising funds for the firefighters and their families who were affected by the blaze. Ronnie Crocker of the Houston Chronicle (Beer TX) announced he received a message from Dan Keeney of Saint Arnold Brewing Company stating the brewery “will hold an impromptu fundraiser tonight in coordination with Houston Fire Department to raise funds for the firefighters who were seriously injured in Friday’s tragic fire.”

The fundraiser is planned from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Entry is $10 with all monies raised going to aid the firefighters who were injured. Saint Arnold Brewing Co. is located at 2000 Lyons Ave  Houston, TX 77020

Southern Star Brewing Co. is also helping out by changing what was supposed to be a pint night/release party for their new brew Valkyrie at Outlaw Dave’s Worldwide HQ at 6502 Washington Ave  Houston, TX 77007. The following announcement made by brewery on Facebook:

Washington Ave Residents!

Join Southern Star for what was supposed to be a release party for our Valkyrie has now morphed into a pint night and honoring the fallen HFD Fire Fighters who tragically lost their lives last week. Out Law Dave’s World Wide HQ will be accepting donations to help the families of these fallen heroes. Southern Star has donated a generous surprise gift to be auctioned off Friday. Join both Daves for a great pint night and for a good cause. The event will start at 7pm.
