StacheStrong is a 501(c)3 charity devoted to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research. For the first time, 150+ breweries all over the nation are brewing beers to battle brain cancer alongside StacheStrong as part of the inaugural #BrewStacheStrong program. Oskar Blues has supported StacheStrong since 2018 and is proud to participate in this year’s initiative among some of the nation’s most esteemed craft breweries.
Oskar Blues Head Brewer Juice Drapeau said, “We’ve been brewing SMaSH beers over the last four years as a way to R&D new hop varieties to see how they translate in a finished product. The Sabro Hop variety was a huge hit with staff and a fan favorite so we decided to rock this out for our friends at StacheStrong.”
