The wait is over! Broad Brook Brewery Company (BBBC) has again teamed with Driving For A Cure & Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation to support childhood cancer research with a fresh batch of Alex’s Summer Daze Lemon Weisse. Available April 29, it is brewed with lemons, lemon zest, and lemon drop hops. Alex’s Summer Daze will be available at the taproom, local restaurants, and in cans throughout Conn., Mass, and RI. A portion of the proceeds will go directly to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. “Our distribution partners are thrilled to be part of this,” said Eric Mance, BBBC owner. “For us, it’s a full circle situation. We are happy to be a part of the local community that supports our business. Anything we can do to help people with cancer is important to us.”
Broad Brook Brewery Company made its official debut in 2013 in East Windsor. Now housed in a brand-new location at 915 South Street in Suffield, they offer a diverse range of craft beers as well as local hard cider and wines. Their kitchen has a wide choice of mouthwatering dishes and the entire menu is available for take-out.
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) began in 2005 to honor the memory of Alex Scott, a Manchester native who was diagnosed with neuroblastoma in 1997 shortly before her first birthday. When she was just four years old, Alex held her first lemonade stand fundraiser in her front yard. Inspired by her story, lemonade stands began popping up around the world. At the time of her death in 2004, Alex raised over $1 million and inspired a legacy of hope and cures for childhood cancer. To date ALSF has funded over 1,000 research grants at over 150 institutions. Driving For A Cure is a Suffield-based non-profit that fundraises for ALSF and CT Children’s Medical Center.
Mark your calendars for April 29 to be part of release day at the taproom. For more information, check out @DrivingForACure and @BroadBrookBrewery on Facebook & Instagram. Visit alexslemonade.org to learn how you can help ALSF find a cure for pediatric cancer, one cup at a time.
