NEWRY, Maine ??” The Shipyard Brew Haus at Sunday River’s White Cap Lodge will be hosting their official grand-opening event in conjunction with a fundraiser for the Boston Firefighters Burn Foundation on Thursday, Feb. 9 starting at 5 p.m.

The grand-opening event starts at 5 p.m. with a special 2 for 1 menu, half price appetizers, and $2.50 Shipyard Ales. At 7 p.m. the fun moves upstairs to Pugley’s Pub and Thumpers Nightclub. The $5 cover charge for the upstairs event benefits The Boston Firefighters Burn Foundation. A large portion of the fundraising will occur via a raffle drawing with a wide range of prizes including Boston hotel stays, ski equipment, a Sunday River getaway for two, Shipyard Brewery products and more.

The Shipyard Brew Haus has donated the entertainment for the evening to be supplied by the Rick Graham Band.

“The event was a great success last year and word is that this year’s is going to top it,” said Firefighter and Director of the Boston Firefighters Burn Foundation. “It’s one of about seven fund raisers we do each year. The money we raise goes to help burn victims and their families during difficult times.”

The Boston Firefighter’s Burn Foundation is a non-profit organization formed and run by Boston Firefighters. The Foundation is committed to helping burn victims and their families throughout their hospital stay; to include but not limited to providing emotional and financial support. The Boston Firefighters Burn Foundation also provides financial and logistical support to local burn centers. More information is available at

The Shipyard Brew Haus is for the whole family, Pugsley’s Pub has a more bar-like atmosphere, and Thumpers nightclub is the place to see major touring musical acts. All of the action is easily accessible by Sunday River’s on-mountain trolley, the Bethel area Mountain Explorer bus, or via ski trails.
