Ales for ALS

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease) is an incurable disease that affects about 3,000 people in Canada and gradually paralyzes people because the brain is no longer able to communicate with the muscles of the body that we are typically able to move at will.

Over time, as the muscles of the body break down, someone living with ALS will lose the ability to walk, talk, eat, swallow, and eventually breathe. ALS is not contagious. There is no cure for ALS and approximately 80 per cent of people with ALS die within two to five years of being diagnosed.

Our brewer’s father was diagnosed with ALS in 2007 not long after retiring and passed away from complications related to the disease just shy of two years later at the age of 60.
