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!
