Sharing the same proprietary hop blend, around 40 of our brewery brethren nationwide created beers to benefit research for ALS, a disease often associated with baseball legend Lou Gehrig. A strong swing of tropical fruit and citrus drives light-boded No. 4 Pale Ale to the wall, and it crosses home with a crisp, dry finish. (Lou Gehrig’s number 4 was retired by the New York Yankees in 1939.)
