All-time: Over $100k raised for ALS research
We’ve been partnering with our friends at Ales For ALS every summer since 2014 to brew our IPA For ALS! Ales For ALS, a charity started by Yakima, WA hop farmers Cheryl Hanses and Mike Smith was inspired by the ALS diagnosis of Cheryl’s brother. Cheryl and Mike then teamed up with their friends in the brewing business to raise money for ALS research and treatment efforts. Cheryl and her daughter came up with the phrase ‘Ales for ALS,’ trademarked it, and transformed it from a small pilot project into the worldwide effort it is today!
In addition to The RAM, the charity has seen support from hundreds of US breweries, and even international breweries in Japan, Germany and the UK. Each year, Cheryl and Mike donate experimental hops to the breweries involved, and in return, a portion of the beer sales are donated to the Ales for ALS charity.more about ales for als
