Reunion - A Beer For Hope

Bison Brewery in Berkeley, CA is one of the better microbreweries I've been to. The place has a great atmosphere and beer that's unique without having to be only for beer geeks.

Recently, Bison joined forces for a special project with three old friends from the early days at Pete's Wicked Ale. It seems that one of the friends, Virginia, was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, a form of bone cancer that occurs when the plasma cells attack the bone cells. Their is no known cure for the cancer.

Reunion Beer is based on one of the founder's early beer recipes and ALL profits go to the Institute for Myeloma & Bone Cancer Research. I emphasize "all" because it's really great to see someone going in 100% to helping a cause they believe in. It's not one of those benefits that gives a "portion of proceeds" to the cause and never really lets you know just how big a portion. These guys are the real deal.

The beer can be purchased in California, Washington, Arizona, Colorado, and Illinois for US$4.99 a bottle.
