This beer has been dedicated to Sawyer and to the courage in all of us. To not giving up, even when it may appear impossible to win. For those like Sawyer, who possess an indomitable spirit, giving up is never an option. Such people inspire others, and so have we been inspired to help fight for awareness, research, understanding, and ultimately, a cure for ALD. As with any important battle, this fight is invaluably aided by help from our friends. Pulling together for a common cause is as elemental to the human spirit as the search for knowledge and betterment.
We at Stone and the Sherwood family would like to honor and thank all those who have generously donated their resources towards the creation of this brew. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this beer originally went towards ALD causes and charities, and it is no different today. Attendees at our fundraising Stone anniversary celebrations have become accustomed to seeing the “Fight ALD” booth. Created by Sawyer’s mother, Janis Sherwood, Fight ALD is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to spread awareness for the all-important early detection of the disease and search for its cure.
