Full Sail Brewing, located in Hood River, would like to remind everyone to drink their beer. Specifically the brewery encourages everyone to drink their Full Sail Ales for ALS Dry-Hopped Pale Al
As one of the 69 breweries, participating in this year's Ales for ALS campaign, the brewery is happy to drive awareness for this debilitating disease, by supporting ALS Therapy Development Institute’s (ALS TDI). Through public and private funding, the ALS TDI seeks to cure and treat ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease.
Participating breweries, who donate proceeds from beer sales, receive a special (experimental) hop blend, from B.T. Loftus Rances and Hopunion..
"From these hops each participating brewery brewed a unique beer and will donate a portion of the sales to ALS TDI."
For their donation, Full Sail released Full Sail Ales for ALS Dry-Hopped Pale Ale
“We are honored to work with our friends at Loftus Farms to support ALS research, and will donate a portion of every sale to the ALS Therapy Development Institute. Loftus grows some beautiful hops, and they put together a blend of experimental varieties for us to create a beer for their “Ales for ALS” program. This copper hued Pale Ale has just enough malt presence to provide support for the bitterness and big hop aroma. Our taste panel called out the aroma with peach and tropical fruit complimented by some fresh herbs (i.e. dill and Thai basil). Complex and delicious, join the exploration of experimental hops and support a great cause,” said Barney Brennan, Full Sail Brewing Company’s Brewing Supervisor.
Started June 1st and running through July, Ales for ALS Dry-Hopped Pale, will be available (exclusivly) at the brewery's taproom, while supplies last
