What Is Ales For ALS™?
Ales for ALS™ is a national fundraising campaign created in 2013 by a Yakima Valley hop farming family to raise funds and awareness for ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease. Each year, their hop farm, Loftus Ranches, and Yakima Chief Hops donate a unique hop blend, developed by master brewers, to select breweries across the country.
Participating breweries select the quantity they would like, and receive the special blend of experimental hop varieties, free of charge. In return, we ask that a minimum of $1 per pint brewed with this blend be donated to advance ALS research at the ALS Therapy Development Institute (ALS TDI).
