Drinking This New Hampshire Craft Beer Will Help Fight Breast Cancer This Month
It doesn't matter if you're a Granite Stater, a Mainer, a New Englander, or you're a resident (or alien, because why not) of anywhere in the country -- today kicks off one of the most important months of the year, and not just because of Halloween.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month
According to Hocking College, October was first referred to as Breast Cancer Awareness Month back in October 1985. That just happened to be the month and year that the first organized movement to bring attention, awareness, and an overall caring about the dangers of breast cancer came to be in the United States. And as we all know, ever since, multiple fundraisers and events to fight breast cancer have popped up in October to keep the awareness and fight going.
Pipe Dream Brewing - Londonderry, New Hampshire
While there are countless events across the country between marathons, 5K's, walk/runs, and the like, there are other fundraisers that are just as effective even though they don't appear in an "event" form. Pipe Dream Brewing in Londonderry, New Hampshire, is a perfect example of one such fundraiser. While Pipe Dream is known for their numerous selection of locally-made craft beers of all sorts (IPAs, stouts, lagers, etc), they also have mastered crafting sour ales. And a brand new sour ale they just crafted is helping to raise money for the endless fight against breast cancer.
I 💜 Boobs Sour Ale
At Noon today (Friday, October 1) and lasting for the entire month, Pipe Dream is offering their newest sour ale, I 💜 Boobs. Obviously, the play-on-words references breasts, and that's because this sour ale is a limited edition fundraiser ale that is going toward battling breast cancer. All October long, a portion of the proceeds from all sales of the I 💜 Boobs sour ale will go toward finding a cure for breast cancer.
On top of that, to kick off Breast Cancer Awareness Month, for every pint of I 💜 Boobs sour ale sold today between 5p and 9p, $1 will be donated to the Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge Fundraiser.
