Beer party for a cause

POST FALLS, Idaho - Selkirk Abbey Brewery in Post Falls is launching a new brand this weekend: "Northern Cross."

"I needed an avenue for my brewers to express themselves," explained Selkirk Owner and Founder Jeff Whitman. "Selkirk Abbey is very locked into what we do, and they just needed something else."

In addition to giving his brewers more freedomm all proceeds from Saturday's "Northern Cross" party will go to the family of Sergeant Greg Moore and Bonner's County deputies Mike Gagnon and Justin Penn.

Coeur D'alene Police Officer Greg Moore was killed in the line of duty two years ago, while Gagnon and Penn were shot earlier this year.

"They need to know that the community is behind them," said Whitman. "I'm part of the community, so this is what I'm doing."

The party begins at noon Saturday at Selkirk Abbey at 6180 E Seltice Way.
