Wild Ride Brewing releases ALS research benefit lager

Wild Ride Brewing of Redmond, Oregon, is releasing a special beer that will raise money for ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) this week, an amber lager named Brenna A. This is named after a fishing vessel, from the Discovery televion show Deadliest Catch, captained by Captain Sean Dwyer.

Here is the content of the email press release they sent out:

Wild Ride Brewing has teamed up with Captain Sean Dwyer and the crew of the F/V Brenna A from the Deadliest Catch to raise awareness and money for ALS research. Together we’ve created a beer to honor the memory of Sean’s father, Pat Ford Dwyer, who passed away from ALS. Using traditional European malts, this Lager has a full body with an amber color and a pleasant, sweet malt flavor. Balanced with Mandarina Bavaria hops and fermented with a traditional Lager yeast, this beer is smooth and easy to drink. A portion of all proceeds from the sales of this beer will be donated to ALS Therapy Development Institute, the largest research facility dedicated to finding a cure for ALS.

This beer will be available on draft and in 22oz bottles. As Brenna A Amber Lager is officially released and distribution begins, it will be distributed throughout Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Alaska.

There will be a release party for this beer at Wild Ride Brewing on Tuesday, November 7th from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Join us for beer, raffles, and a chance to meet Captain Sean Dwyer from the Deadliest Catch. ALS Therapy Development Institute will also be on hand to provide more information about their efforts to end ALS. We’re excited to release this beer and kick off a long-term partnership with the Dwyer family and ALSTDI!

So take note: Tuesday, November 7 from 4:30 to 6:30pm. The beer itself is 5% abv with 25 IBUs; judging by Untappd, the beer is on tap at Wild Ride already. But if you can, be sure to attend the official release party and try to meet Captain Dwyer.
