In honor of May being ALS Awareness month, Untappd has released a new badge in collaboration with the Ales for ALS™ program. Untappd began their support of the Ales for ALS™ program in 2020 and has decided to continue their partnership into 2021.
What is Untappd?
Untappd allows users to log and review the various craft beers that they’ve tried while earning badges for their profiles based on trying new beers and expanding their palates. Normally they’re awarded for things like trying beers from different countries, enjoying new styles and frequenting different kinds of bars or restaurants. However, a new badge will reward people who help support ALS TDI through beer.
How Does the New Badge Work?
The new Ales for ALS™ (2021) badge will honor people who have logged a beer from a brewery participating in the Ales for ALS™ program. You can read more about the Ales for ALS™ program on the Untappd website and find participating breweries here.
What is Ales for ALS™?
Ales for ALS™ is a national program in which participating brewers receive a unique, exclusive hop blend, created and donated annually by Loftus Ranches and YCH Hops. Ales for ALS™ brewers donate $1 to the ALS Therapy Development Institute (ALS TDI) for each pint of the resulting Ales for ALS™ brew sold, allowing breweries and beer lovers to enjoy unique, high-quality beers while contributing to the fight to end ALS.
