Why is the festival in memory of Josh Osterhoudt?

A: Josh was the General Manager of Bristol Brewing- a true friend to craft brewing and the great outdoors. Josh was described as good for the soul. He was exceedingly easy to be with. No fuss, no drama, and infinitely ready with that laugh. He seemed to exude an untroubled contentment with life and with whatever life handed him. A true friend to Old Chicago and founding member of Springs Beer Fest.  Josh passed in 2012 from a short fight with cancer. We all benefit from the legacy of Josh’s great energy and spirit.

Are any of the proceeds donated to charity?
