 The 6th Annual Ales for ALS Festival will be hosted at Faction Brewing on Saturday July 27st, 2019 from 1-5PM.

Tickets are $45 (General Admission) or $60 (Do-Gooder: skip the line for faster check-in!) Both include a commemorative glass and unlimited tastings during the festival. Tickets will be $65 at the door if available, but advance tickets highly recommended.


ALL PROCEEDS go to the ALS-Therapy Development Institute.

Each year, Ales for ALS selects a unique hop blend, and participating breweries brew a beer with these hops. The 2019 Ales for ALS hop blend features: Mosaic, Simcoe, Sabro, Loral, and HBC 630, 344, 692, and 56 hops provided by Yakima Chief Hops and Loftus Ranches.
