Hops for Hope kicks off!

Posted By

Purple Community is excited to bring you a new and improved Hops for Hope experience!

Haven’t heard of Hops for Hope before? Hops for Hope is a unique way for breweries, bars, restaurants and beer lovers to help raise funds for the remarkable cancer, Parkinson’s, and neurodegenerative disease research happening at Van Andel Institute.

Each Hops for Hope location selects a beer on tap to be their “give back” beer. For each pint of
“give back” beer sold, $1.00 will go towards the cause. What an easy and fun way to give back!

Each month there will be new locations, featured beers AND a new map that can be downloaded from our Hops for Hope web page. Simply print the map off and you are ready to go. Take your map to each participating location to receive a stamp. After you have completed the map, snap a picture of it and send it to purplecommunity@vai.org to receive a FREE Hops for Hope shirt!

Our September partners are eager to have you visit their locations and try their favorite brews.

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to find out who our partners are and keep up on #Hops4Hope updates!

We can’t thank our partners and participants enough! Thank you for raising awareness and funds for
Van Andel Institute through Hops for Hope. A dollar per pint may sound small but each and every dollar can take research to the next level and bring us one step closer to a cure.

Last year North Peak Brewing raised $875.00 just through their pint sales. Let’s see who can beat that this year!
