The Global Poverty Project has officially announced a new concept called the Global Citizen Tickets Initiative to promote social change through concert tickets. Over 60 artists are involved in the movement including Pearl Jam, Black Sabbath, Foo Fighters, Linkin’ Park, Portugal. The Man and Soundgarden just to name a few. Music fans and activists fighting to end poverty can register for the movement at globalcitizen.org/ticket.
Points are earned by taking social action; it can be small like a sharing a video on social media or signing a petition. Each registered individual taking action will have the opportunity to win free concert tickets.
The ticket initiative is a large ground breaking movement developed by Pearl Jams Manager, Kelly Curtis and The Global Poverty Project CEO Hugh Evans. Having such a large movement will help with the issue of poverty and obstacles that go along with living in this condition.

I'm flying completely blind on this one but the good folks at World Of Beer in Arlington were kind enough to pass this new (to the area) beer along to me.
And who am I to turn down a free beer?
Look-golden honey brown (Evil Claire's words)

Shawshank’s Injunction Pale Ale is a lighter profile but by no means a light weight as its complexity will surely attest.
