ALES FOR ALS FEST 2016
The third annual Ales for ALS Festival will take place at Faction Brewing, 2501 Monarch St, Alameda CA 94501, on Saturday, July 23rd from 1PM-5PM.
Faction Brewing will host the participants of the "Ales for ALS" program benefitting ALS Therapy Development Institute (ALS TDI), including Beachwood BBQ & Brewing, Cellarmaker Brewing, The Rare Barrel and Stone Brewing amongst others.
Loftus Ranches and Hopunion, both of Yakima, WA, along with the Smith and Hanses families, have created Ales for ALS to support a very worthy cause: ALS research. They have offered participating brewers access to a proprietary hop blend, free of charge, in exchange for participation in Ales for ALS.
While we would like to work with every brewer in the United States (that would really raise a lot of research funding!) we are limited by the hop blend supply. Participating brewers received an invitation from Loftus Ranches and Hopunion, and each has brewed a special beer with these hops and will donate a portion of the sales to ALS TDI, the world's leader in ALS research.
Tickets will also be available in the Faction Brewing tasting room in mid-June and July. Designated driver tickets will be available online and at the door.
21+, ID required, no children and no dogs (unless ADA compliant) the day of the festival.
Five food vendors including Grilled Cheez Guy, Burnt Ends BBQ, Sticks, Doc's Burgers and Scolari's.
