CHARLESTON, SC (March 13 , 2018) – Home Team BBQ and Edmund’s Oast Brewing Co. (EOBC) recently partnered to brew a special collaboration beer called “F is for #Effcancer,” the proceeds from which will be donated to Hogs for the Cause. The amber ale debuted on February 24 at HTBBQ’s Rock the Block fundraising event, and is currently available on draft for $5 at all Home Team BBQ locations and EOBC.
The beer is a 6% ABV amber ale that features hints of orchard fruit and flowers on the nose, coupled with freshly toasted bread and hints of caramel on the palate. The finish is dry and quick, and it pairs perfectly with the delicious smoked meats and other plates served at Home Team BBQ.
Hogs for the Cause is the premier funding source for pediatric brain cancer outreach services in the U.S. They have provided 600 grants over 10 years, and have partnered with several hospitals throughout the country, including Children’s Hospital of New Orleans, Ochsner Hospital for Children, Duke Children’s Hospital, Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) Children’s Hospital, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite and Children’s Hospital of San Antonio.
“Home Team BBQ has been involved with Hogs for the Cause for six years now,” explains owner, Aaron Siegel. “We teamed up with some friends in 2012 for the New Orleans festival and have been doing our best to contribute on behalf of our team for the amazing cause ever since. We’re excited to partner with EOBC on this beer, which is just one more way we hope to support Hogs for the Cause mission.”
Says Scott Shor, operating partner at EOBC, “We are excited that one of our first collaboration beers is with our good friends at Home Team BBQ. We look forward to featuring it at the brewery, and hope it raises a lot of money for this important cause.”
