Nashville craft brewers fight lung cancer with Stephanie’s Dubbel
On Sunday, November 23, local craft breweries Blackstone, Jackalope, Yazoo, Black Abbey, Tennessee Brew Works, Little Harpeth and Fat Bottom will host a bottle release party and craft beer tasting at the Nashville Farmers’ Market from 4pm–8pm.
Tennessee Craft Brewing matriarch Stephanie Weins, Co-Founder Blackstone Brewing Company, lost her battle with lung cancer on Valentines Day, 2014. Lung cancer will claim nearly 160,000 additional lives in 2014. It is the leading cause of cancer deaths and it will claim more lives than the next 4 cancers combined. Only 15% of those diagnosed will survive 5 years. Even though so many lives are claimed by lung cancer the dollars spent on research ranks near the bottom.
Limited bottle release of Stephanie’s Dubbel (Belgian-style Dubbel)
A limited number of this wonderful Belgian Dubbel will be bottled. Bottle(s) can be reserved at www.stephaniesfight.org and picked up at this event. Depending on pre-sales there should be additional bottles available at this event. 100% of the money collected from this event will benefit lung cancer research through Stephanie’s Fight.
About the beer – Stephanie’s Dubbel:
Belgian Dubbels are part of a very old family of beers known as monastic or Trappist beers; beers brewed in a monastery. Stephanie’s Dubbel is brewed with imported Belgian malts and imported Belgian dark candi sugar. It is a rich, malty brown beer with medium body and hints of chocolate and caramel, and fermented with Chimay yeast, which leaves trace aromas of raisins, plums and dried cherries.
