Health Beat: Byfield man’s brew to help a good cause

Sales of a beer brewed by a Byfield resident will benefit amyotrophic lateral sclerosis research and treatment.

Gary Rogers is the winner of the home brew competition hosted by Ales Over ALS, a program started in Essex to combat ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

Rogers’ double India pale ale, called Iron Horse “Double E” DIPA, is being sold for a limited time at Cape Ann Brewing Co. in Gloucester and Woodman’s in Essex.

For every pint purchased, $1 will be donated to the ALS Therapy Development Institute in Cambridge to help combat the neurodegenerative disease that causes muscle weakness, paralysis and respiratory failure.
