The RAM Restaurant and Brewery Participates in ‘Ales for ALS’

LAKEWOOD, WA – The RAM Restaurant and Brewery has joined the 3rd annual ‘Ales for ALS,’ a fundraising and awareness campaign to help find a cure for ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis). The RAM’s “A Cure for What ALS You” small batch seasonal release has been tapped at all Washington RAM locations with $1 from each pint being donated to ALS TDI, the world’s leader in ALS research.

“We are excited to partner with over 80 breweries across the US for Ales for ALS – last year ‘Ales for ALS’ raised over $300,000 for ALS research. “A cure for what ALS you” is an assertively hoppy Northwest style IPA brewed with an exclusive hop blend from Loftus Hop farms in Yakima, WA. This unique hop blend combines Mosaic, Equinox and five experimental varities and imparts a resinous, yet tropical hop character,” said Dave Leonard, Director of Brewery Operations.

The ‘Ales for ALS’ program, created by Loftus Ranches and Hopunion, provides a promising experimental one-of-a-kind hop pellet blend, free-of-charge, to participating brewers to create their special brews. The hop varieties utilized in this year’s blend were selected by Ken and Brian Grossman (Sierra Nevada), John Mallet (Bell’s), Rob Kent (Bear Republic) and Julian Schrago (Beachwood).
