Ales Over ALS - A Crafter's Delight

Nathan Woodman

Saturday, October 5, 2013 - 12noon to 5pm
Waterline Center at the Essex Shipbuilding Museum
Essex, Massachusetts

Second Annual ALES over ALS - A Crafter's Delight is a celebration of all things locally crafted from farm, sea, and brew kettle -- in support of the continued quest to find a cure for ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig's disease). All proceeds from this fundraising event will go directly to the ALS Therapy Development Institute (ALS TDI) -- the world's largest, nonprofit research facility solely dedicated to curing ALS. Located in Cambridge, MA, ALS TDI is dedicated to developing viable treatments and a cure for this incurable, degenerative neurological disease.

The evening will be highlighted by a home brewing competition set in the historic Essex Shipbuilding Museum. The event will feature hand-crafted beers from amateur home brewers that will be judged by special guests as well as by fundraiser attendee
s. Cape Ann Brewing Co. will brew the winning home-brewer's entry in the competition. Proceeds from the sale of this one-time draft release will go towards helping to develop a cure for ALS.

Food will be provided by Woodman's of Essex; the Village Restaurant; Iggy's Bread; and by other local supporters. Fresh, locally brewed beer will be provided by Cape Ann Brewing Co., Gloucester, MA.
