A Reunion of Friends
Eighteen years ago, Pete Slosberg, of Pete’s Wicked Ale fame, brought Alan Shapiro and Virginia MacLean into his company. While these long-time friends later pursued different professional paths, the news that MacLean had been diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a form of bone cancer, brought them back together. They have reunited to create a beer inspired by Pete’s early recipes, and dedicated to raising awareness and support for the Institute for Myeloma & Bone Cancer Research in Los Angeles.
Reunion-A Beer for Hope is an organic imperial brown ale brewed by Slosberg and Dan Del Grande at Bison Brewing Company’s organic brewery in Berkeley, CA. It is brewed with six different organic malts, three different hops and dryhopped. It is 7.5% alcohol by volume. Reunion will be sold in 22 ounce screen-printed bottles via Shapiro’s SBS-Imports distributor network in California, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, Colorado, and Illinois. It has a suggested price of $4.99 per bottle.
All profits generated by SBS from the sale of REUNION will benefit IMBCR.
