August @ Casita Brewing Company

August 1 - August 31

We’re spending August @ Casita! Casita Brewing Company, located two blocks down Douglas Street from the museum, partnered with Imagination Station in August to help us raise money to create better experiences where you can satisfy your curiosity about how the world works. As Casita’s non-profit charity of the month, we’ll host fun events all month. Casita will also give us 25% of all the tips they receive during August. Tip your servers well! They work hard and feel good about the good they do just by loving their jobs.

Head to Casita, grab a specially crafted brew in the taproom, and relax knowing you’re doing good just by enjoying yourself. If you see us there, you can enter to win $1,000. All of the proceeds from the raffle go to us, Imagination Station. It’s a win-win situation. Tickets are $1 each, or get an arm’s length for $20.
