Mammoth Liquor’s Spike Todd is still in the hospital in Reno.
Some local folks are stepping up to help defray some of the medical expenses.
Mammoth Brewing’s Sean Turner says that before Spike fell ill, he ordered 10 cases, or 240, pint glasses. They have a Mammoth Liquor logo on one side and a Mammoth Brewing Company logo on the other.
Normally, Spike sold the glasses for $5 out the door.
Mammoth Brewing is waiving its charge to Spike for the glasses and pricing them at $20. All proceeds will go to Spike Todd.
Get your pint glass at Mammoth Brewing’s Tasting Room or at Mammoth Liquor. The glasses are supposed to arrive next week.

Hello Spike’s family and friends –
As one nurse said tonight, “He took a step forward last night, and two steps back today.”
Spike suffered a punctured lung today, which was somewhat inevitable given his condition and the ventilator that’s been pumping him since this all began.
By this evening, some of his numbers were back to acceptable levels and things were better. Spike is very sick and fighting hard, with many tough days ahead. It’s a long haul but we remain confident in his recovery.
Thank you all so very much for your continued love and concern.
