PRESS RELEASE / May 5, 2021 (Boston and Cambridge, MA) – May is ALS Awareness Month, and both Samuel Adams and Lamplighter Brewing Co. are giving drinkers a way to make a difference this year. Lamplighter was inspired to make an impact after a member of their team lost her grandfather to ALS. Samuel Adams brewers, who annually support Ales for ALS, knew that a collaboration was the best way to brew good and do good – see the full story here.

Samuel Adams and Lamplighter have teamed up with Ales for ALS to create the Beacon of Hops series, a set of hazy beers for a good cause. Lamplighter Brewery in Cambridge, Samuel Adams Boston Brewery and Samuel Adams Boston Taproom are each launching their own unique brew within the series made with the Ales for ALS hop blends.

Plastic Can Carriers Are NOT Curbside Recyclable, But SOME Breweries CAN Reuse or Recycle Them
