GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.—Knock back a beer and help knock out cancer this month with “Hops for Hope.”
During September, several West Michigan breweries will be donating $1 from each “purple beer” purchase to Van Andel Institute’s Purple Community. Proceeds from sales of Hops for Hope growlers and refills will also go to the cause.
“It’s good to give back to the community,” Bob Bonga, owner of the family-owned and operated Jaden James Brewery in Kentwood. “It’s wonderful that VAI is in Grand Rapids, and 100% of what we raise goes to research.”
