Special Release!

Released in time for Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October), Althea was brewed to help defray ancillary costs for Lehigh Valley area breast cancer patients in need.  One dollar per bottle will be donated to The Breast Cancer Patient Assistance Fund of Lehigh Valley Health Network.

Althea is a Belgian-style Dubbel brewed with plums, bottle conditioned in a 750 ml / 25.4 oz. cork and cage bottle which weighs in at a substantial 7.7% ABV.  It’s a beautiful, dark and fruity ale conceived and brewed by our New Jersey Sales Representative and former Philly Beer Geek, Natalie DeChico.  Read about the day we brewed it in the article titled, “Brewing Up a Helping Hand”.

Althea is available to all of our distribution areas in limited quantities though we expect the majority to be sold close to the Lehigh Valley.  Althea began shipping to wholesalers in late September and will debut at the Visitors Center on September 27th at 4:30pm.  Supplies are ultra limited so be sure to get yours soon!

Weyerbacher is making Althea T-shirts which will be added to the webstore and will be available at the Visitors Center.  We are selling them for $20 each and donating $10 per shirt to the The Breast Cancer Patient Assistance Fund of Lehigh Valley Health Network.  Show your support by buying a bottle and WEAR your support by getting a shirt!  They will be available in women’s and unisex cuts.

Once the shirts have been added to the webstore, a link will appear here.  Meanwhile, here is the artwork proof:

  2. You have no idea while reading Emmaus Life I came across the add for a new beer named “ALTHEA” with donations going toward Breast Cancer. You see I lost my mother two years ago on September 22 and her name is “ALTHEA”. Mom had one beer every night before bed time and I feel this is a sign letting me know she is at peace and now drinking “ALTHEA”. I will be letting all friends and family where they can buy “ALTHEA”. Thank you.

    Having an aunt who died from breast cancer, I vote this should be distributed as far as possible and year round!

    Did Althea ship to the pittsburgh area? I know I’m a little behind in looking for it but would love a bottle, and a shirt for that matter. My wife is finishing up treatment for breast cancer and I like to show my support of her and all the others fighting as much as I can.
