KINGWOOD, Texas (Aug. 23) – A unique partnership will be launched this month when Back Pew Brewing debuts a special beer in support of Addi’s Faith Foundation, a charity dedicated to ending childhood cancer.
“Addi’s Faith Kolsch” will debut to the public at the Brewmasters Craft Beer Festival on Aug. 31-Sept. 2 in Galveston, Texas. “Addi’s Faith Kolsch” will then be available in September in H-E-B and Kroger stores in the Houston area, as well as select restaurants and bars in the region.
Proceeds from the sales of “Addi’s Faith Kolsch” will be donated to Addi’s Faith Foundation.
“We’re pretty excited to have one of our local breweries here put out a craft beer for our foundation in honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, which is in September,” said Amber Bender, co-founder and executive director of Addi’s Faith Foundation. “That’s when we’re launching the beer. It’s going to be local to the Houston region, but the proceeds will support the fight against childhood cancer.”
Tony and Amber Bender began Addi’s Faith Foundation in 2008 after their young daughter, Addison Faith, died of cancer. To honor Addison’s memory, Back Pew Brewing used part of the foundation’s logo in the design of the “Addi’s Faith Kolsch” can.
“They’ve been very supportive in helping us incorporate what we’re trying to do in with that they do,” Amber Bender said.
“Addi’s Faith Kolsch” will be a limited-edition brew, but Bender hopes the partnership with the brewery will become an annual tradition, with different varieties each year.
A special first tasting of “Addi’s Faith Kolsch” will take place this week at Back Pew Brewing in Porter, Texas.
