Weyerbacher Brewing's Charitable Efforts

Weyerbacher has been a most charitable brewery as of late.  Two campaigns from them have really stood out to me.

Most recently, Dan Weirback, president of Weyerbacher, made a $12,336 donation to the Breast Cancer Patient Assistance Fund of the Lehigh Valley Health Network.  They donated $1.00 from every bottle of Althea that was sold (they sold all of it!). 


The fund helps patients cover the costs of non-medical expenses related to their disease and their treatment.  The campaign was so successful, Weyerbacher will be brewing Althea again for next fall.  Althea is a belgian-style dubbel ale brewed with plums.  (It tasted fantastic, too.)

Weyerbacher also donates a portion of the sale of every bottle of Last Chance IPA to small, regional, animal rescue operations.  According to their website, they have donated a total of almost $35,000 to these operations!  Use this link and scroll down to see a list of all the animal rescue operations they have donated to so far.
