For the third year, The RAM Restaurant Group recently participated in the Ales for ALS national fundraising campaign to raise money for ALS research. With overwhelming response, The RAM & C.B. & Potts Restaurant and Brewery locations recently tapped out of their 2017 IPA 4 ALS specialty brew, bringing their grand total donation to $20,173. This exceeds their donation from 2016 by nearly $5,000! One dollar for every pint sold was donated to the cause.
“We are so excited to break the $20,000 raised mark for ALS in 2017. We brewed 100 barrels of IPA 4 ALS and sold the batch out in just over four weeks,” says Dave Leonard, Director of Brewing Operations. “This year’s hop blend featured Citra, Loral and a few experimental varieties to create tropical fruit notes in the beer. It was amazing to see our guest’s excitement for this beer and excitement to support such a great cause.”
The ‘Ales for ALS’ program was created by Loftus Ranches and Hopunion in Yakima, Washington provides a promising experimental one-of-a-kind hop pellet blend, free-of-charge, to participating brewers to create a great beer for a great cause. The RAM Group Breweries were proud to be chosen to participate along with the select group of other esteemed brewers throughout the country.
