Local brewery raising money for ALS research

Posted: Updated:

Lost Cabin Beer Co. in Rapid City, as well as 100 other breweries from 30 states across the nation, are participating in Ales for ALS.

Ales for ALS is a charitable program that started in 2013 and raises money for the ALS Therapy Development Therapy Institute in Cambridge, Mass. Each participating brewery serves their own unique, limited-edition beer. The Lost Cabin served up the Ultimate Warrior, a New England Style India Pale Ale. The brewery also donated $1 for each pint sold.

Co-founder of Lost Cabin, Jesse Scheitler, explained how the brewery is always trying to give back to the community and how other local craft beer retailers also served the Ultimate Warrior.

“We're always looking for ways to give back to the community,” Scheitler said. “We try to involve ourselves, and the community has been really supportive about what we're doing. So we always try to find ways to give back. The other bars that are involved in this launch - we got 445, Paddy O’Neil’s, Independent Ale House, Murphey's, Thirsty's and Manerva's - they're all joining us in this launch and they're also donating a dollar for every pint.”

Since its inception, Ales for ALS has raised over $1.2 million for ALS research. The Lost Cabin is hoping to raise $3,000 before the beer runs out.
