Ales for ALS participants receive a special blend of experimental hops provided by Loftus Ranches and Hopunion. Participating brewers create special beers with the hops and donate a portion of the sales to the Cambridge, Mass.-based institute, which researches a cure for ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
Great Lakes brewed a heavily hopped White IPA with its Belgian witbier yeast and spiced with coriander, white pepper and lemongrass. The beer will be tapped at 4 p.m. Friday (July 12) and sold exclusively in the Great Lakes brewpub while supplies last. The brewery will donate $1 from each White IPA pint sold to the institute.
