ChemoSabe is what we like to call a Big Black Wheat. It comes in at 8.5% and is brewed with an amazing UK hop called Bramling Cross. We added just a touch of Wasabi which just adds some complexity to the beer, not heat.
The beer is so named because we think cancer sucks – so we are using it to raise money for a local charity. It started because Rob heard about a little girl in the Philadelphia suburbs (Phoenixville) named Gabby who was diagnosed with a rare form of a cancerous brain tumor. We decided to raise money to help her and her family through this troubling time by selling this beer at the taproom in 12oz glasses and donating $2 per glass to her as well as charging an extra $10 for a growler fill which went directly to her as well. You can learn more about her at Get Well Gabby.
Sadly, Gabby has since passed away, but ChemoSabe will live on; raising money for local families fighting cancer.
