Bell's Ales for ALS tapped at Eccentric Cafe, proceeds go to ALS research

ALS-5.jpgBell’s Brewery is again participating in Ales for ALS, a program that brews beer to raise money for ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease.

The program started in 2013 by Loftus Ranches and Hop Union, and Bell’s has been involved since the beginning.

The farm donates a special hop blend to breweries to make a special beer. A dollar from each beer sold will go to the ALS Therapy Development Institute.

The 2015 Bell’s Ales for ALS IPA has tropical, grapefruit, silky and oatmeal notes. It comes in at 6.5 percent ABV and is now exclusively available at the Eccentric Cafe.

“It’s important that the brewing industry gives back,” said John Mallett, Bell’s director of operations and one of the designers of the hop blend. “It’s a pretty fun program. Good hops, great beer, great cause.”

It was brewed with the same hop blend, which includes Equinox, Mosaic and experimental hops. (See the full blend here).

The blend was designed by Bell’s Mallett, as well as Bear Republic's Rob Kent, Sierra Nevada's Ken Grossman & Brian Grossman and Beachwood BBQ and Brewing's Julian Schrago.
