This week, Fremont Brewing has two events which showcase their brewing talents and support of worthy charities.

Starting at 5pm, Fremont's Urban Beer Garden hosts their Harvest Ale Release. On Thursday, August 28th, supporters of local beer will be asked to sample the brewery's Saison isolated or infused with: dandelion & cranberry, huckleberry, chamomile & lemon, cucumber & thyme, or mint with lime & ginger. Plus there will be a brewer on hand to answer questions about the beer or it's 5 other variations.

Then on Saturday, August 30th, the brewery hosts the "Ales for ALS Party". From 11am to 3pm, the brewery - along with several other brewers - will feature all 6 beers brewed for the " ALS Therapy Development Institute". Look for beers from Mt. Tabor Brewing, Triplehorn Brewing, Pike Brewing, Bale Breaker Brewing, Two Beers, and of course Fremont.

After sourcing some of the best ingredients this side of Bavaria, Fremont calls upon our brewers to mash, boil, and ferment that goodness into the glorious nectar that we are proud to call our own. This fall we asked our brewers to help us explain how we get that final product just right. Learn the process step by step from the folks who make the beer, and enjoy a pint or two along the way.

Fremont Brewing Company's "Urban Beer Garden" is located at 1050 N 34th Street in Seattle's "Fremont" neighborhood.

Fremont Brewing was born of our love for our home and history as well as the desire to prove that beer made with the finest local ingredients – organic when possible --, is not the wave of the future but the doorway to beer's history. Starting a brewery in the midst of the Great Recession is clearly an act of passion. We invite you to come along with us and enjoy that passion -- because beer matters.

The ALS Therapy Development Institute (ALS TDI) is the world's leading ALS research organization and aims to discover and develop effective treatments and a cure for ALS. Built by and for patients, the Cambridge, MA based drug development institute operates as a 501c3 nonprofit: combining the optimal entrepreneurial practices of a biotechnology and pharmaceutical company with the passion and urgency of a nonprofit mission.

Loftus Ranches and Hopunion 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 receive an invitation from Loftus Ranches and Hopunion. Each will brew special beers with these hops and will donate a portion of the sales to ALS TDI, the world's leader in ALS research.
