Besides getting off to a franchise-record start to the season, St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday is continuing to make a difference off the field as well. His latest effort will be Uncork for a Cause 2015, which will take place this Thursday, May 28th from 7-9pm at the Schlafly Tap Room downtown.

The event serves as the release party for Holliday Red Lager, which was brewed by the Schlafly team specially for Matt and will help raise funds for the Siteman Cancer Center in St. Louis.

Holliday Red Lager label“I really don’t have anything to do with the brew,” admitted Holliday. “I actually haven’t tasted it, either. I’m not a big beer guy, but I figure somebody will enjoy it.”

While Matt may not be a beer drinker, he realizes others enjoy the frosty beverage and was willing to lend his support to help the cause–something he was directly affected by in 2012 when his mother was diagnosed with colon cancer.

“We’re just looking to help out in different ways and different places,” said Holliday of the charity work he and his wife Leslee are involved with. “A lot of guys have foundations where they have one specific thing and one specific goal in mind. We’ve kind of chosen a different route where we find different ways and different places, as something comes into our lives we try and do something or try and find ways to help that organization.”
