Beer added by: Jason on 08-26-2013

Althea is a Belgian-style Dubbel brewed with plums, bottle conditioned in a 750 ml/25.4 oz. cork and cage bottle, which weighs in at a substantial 7.7% ABV. It’s a beautiful, dark and fruity ale conceived and brewed by our New Jersey Sales Representative and former Philly Beer Geek, Natalie DeChico.
Every year, hundreds of women in Weyerbacher’s home, Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley, are diagnosed with breast cancer. For many of these women, this means countless doctor visits, months of treatments and more. All too often this means lost wages and insurmountable bills during what is possibly the most trying time in that woman’s life.

For every bottle of Althea sold, Weyerbacher will donate $1 to The Pink Ribbon Fund to help these women – our mothers, daughters, wives, sisters and their families – cover costs like travel, child care, prostheses and more.

Althea hit the shelves in October 2013 to coincide with Breast Cancer Awareness Month. A limited run with an extremely important purpose, Althea is a unique and delicious way for beer lovers to support women in their fight against breast cancer.

At first, the plum flavors in this beer completely overwhelm and not in a good way. However, subsequent sips allow for the greatness in this beer to come out. This is a very refreshing brew, with just the right amount of fruit to go along with just the right amount of hops. Surprisingly, It pairs very well with a meaty lasagna.
