Excuse the pun, but the statistic is sobering: One in eight men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetimes. When detected early, there is close to a 100% five-year survival rate. And that’s where Pints for Prostates comes in. Pints for Prostates is a grassroots campaign designed to raise awareness among men about prostate cancer and the importance of early detection in fighting the disease. The group was founded in 2008 after beer journalist Rick Lyke was diagnosed at 47-years-old and successfully treated for prostate cancer.
Pints for Prostates works to engage men in a conversation about their health in a relaxed and non-threatening way to reach a population of men who might otherwise ignore traditional health messages. On an annual basis Pints for Prostates appears at nearly 100 events across the United States, and on Sept. 11, 2021, Station 26 Brewing Company will again team up with Pints for Prostates to host a day of education, support, and awareness.
An event-specific beer, The Judge, will be released that day, with $1 from every pint sold going directly to Pints for Prostates. (The beer will also be packaged in 16oz/4pks and available for purchase, and $1 from those sales will go to Pints for Prostates as well.) Named in honor of the Denver County Judge Andre Rudolph, one of the event’s principal organizers, The Judge – A Strongly Impartial Pale Ale – is an easy, smooth drinker with inviting hop character from the addition of El Dorado, Citra and Idaho 7 hops.
Additional highlights of the event: a rare bottle giveaway that will allow attendees to support Pints for Prostates AND add a killer bottle to their cellars; Basic Kneads food truck slinging some of the best pies around; live music; and much more.
