PORTLAND, OR, May 31, 2012 – Rogue Ales has been selected as one of only 24 breweries from around the world to participate in the inaugural Pints for Prostates Portland Pale Ale Invitational. The event will be held on July 25 from 5:30-8:30 p.m. at Tom McCall Waterfront Park in Portland, Ore.
“Our goal was to create an event to celebrate the allure, complexity and flavors of pale ale, while raising awareness about an important men’s health issue,” said Rick Lyke, a drinks journalist and prostate cancer survivor. Lyke founded Pints for Prostates in 2008 after successful prostate cancer surgery.
Presented by Beer West magazine in conjunction with the Oregon Brewers Festival, the event benefits the Pints for Prostates campaign, which reaches men through the universal language of beer with a message about the importance of early detection.
Rogue Ales will be presenting Chatoe Rogue Single Malt Ale, a pale ale brewed with Oregon hops and barley grown on Rogue’s own Hopyard and Barley Farm. From seed to bottle, Single Malt Ale is 100% Oregon, 100% Rogue.
Tickets for the Portland Pale Ale Invitational are $30 and are available online at www.pintsforprostates.org . All net proceeds support the mission of the Pints for Prostates campaign. Only 500 tickets for this special event will be sold.
