Join us for a Surfrider Foundation Massachusetts Chapter Beach Cleanup and a Sierra Nevada Brewing Company After Party to celebrate Hands Across the Sand! We will be cleaning up Carson Beach in South Boston and then heading to nearby pub Local 149 with Sierra Nevada to celebrate the launch of their new beer Sierraveza. We hope to see you there!
