Uinta's ALS Wheat Ale

There's one more new beer today that just slipped in under the wire. This one is a special beer from Uinta made in support of ALS Therapy Development Institute. Ales for ALS™ is a unique craft brewery-based fundraising initiative created to accelerate drug development for ALS patients today. As part of the program, participant brewers received a special blend of experimental hops donated by B.T. Loftus Ranches and Hopunion. With these hops, Uinta chose to brew a unique, Session Wheat IPA.

Uinta's ALS Wheat Ale combines the flavors and body of a wheat ale with the hop characteristics of an IPA.  Citrusy with subtle notes of pepper and white grape this wheat-IPA was brewed with forty percent malted wheat and dry hopped with the proprietary Ales for ALS™  experimental hop blend.

The limited amount (only 20 bbls were brewed) of Uinta's Ales for ALS brew can be found on draught in Uinta's Brewhouse Pub, Uinta's Beer Garden at Granary Row (Between 300 and 400 W, 700 S, Salt Lake City), and at select locations where Uinta beers are distributed.   A percentage of all proceeds will be donated to ALS Therapy Development Institute in support of developing effective treatment for Lou Gehrig's disease.
More information on the Ales for ALS™ campaign can be found at www.alesforals.com.

Cheers!

I saw the name of the beer and my heart stopped. My brother died of ALS. He was a wonderful homebrewer. This disease is so cruel. I hope that the beer sells out. It is a wonderful cause.
