United Phoenix Firefighter Charities, along with United West Valley Firefighter Charities are teaming up with HUSS Brewery to brew a special batch of their annual craft beer to benefit their charities.

Firefighters will be onsite at Huss Brewery in Tempe next Wednesday, 2/7/ from 7am-1pm to assist with brewing 60 kegs of their special brew. There will be great visuals of the entire brewing process, with Valley firefighters participating in the entire brewing process. 

The brew will be sold at the Firefighters' community kick-off event next month (3/2/18) at Desoto Central Market in Phoenix.

The Wildlife World Zoo/Black Footed Penguin

Black Footed Penguin Facts:

  • Is a medium sized endangered species found off the coast of South Africa
  • Oil spills and overfishing of their food are the main reason they are now endangered
  • These penguins are monogamous, the penguin pair stays together usually for many years and often move back to their old nesting sites too.
  • 2 ft Tall
  • Can swim up to 30 miles a day in search of food
  • They secrete oil to make themselves water proof
  • their layer of blubber and dense feathers keeps them warm
  • Can live up to 20 years
  • Their main predators are feral cats, mongoose and genets, rarely even leopards. Marine animals preying on these flightless birds are Cape fur seals, and occasionally sharks and whales further at sea
  • Both male and female incubate the egg and rear the young
  • Each penguin has a black stripe with black spots on their chest. These spots are just like fingerprints with no two patterns being the same.
  • The unique black and white combination offers a natural camouflage to the land as well as underwater predators.

The Wildlife World Zoo is located at 16501 W. Northern Ave. in Litchfield Park.
