Where does the money go?

Benefiting ALS research

The ALS Therapy Development Institute (ALS TDI) is the world's foremost drug discovery lab focused solely on ALS. As a nonprofit biotech we operate without regard to profit or politics.
Led by drug development experts and people with ALS, our Watertown, Massachusetts based lab is funded by a global network of supporters unified to end ALS. Our mission is to discover and develop effective treatments for ALS.
“Once my uncle was diagnosed with ALS I thought Bale Breaker would be a great avenue to raise money and awareness to help not only him, hopefully, but the generations to come.”
Meghann Quinn, owner of Bale Breaker Brewing Company and co-founder of Ales for ALS™
