A drink for health

Pints for Prostates is back in Mile High City

Rare. Unique. Vintage. Limited. If you're looking for the best in craft beer (for a good cause), 60 of the country’s best breweries will be on tap, pun intended, for the return of Denver's Pints for Prostates.

The organization, a grassroots campaign designed to raise awareness among men about prostate cancer and the importance of early detection in fighting the disease, is partnering with the Colorado Brewers Guild (CBG) for the 13th Annual Denver Rare Beer Tasting event, Sept. 9 from 1-5 p.m. at McNichols Civic Center Building.

Pints for Prostates was founded in 2008 after beer journalist Rick Lyke was diagnosed at 47—and was successfully treated—for prostate cancer. The organization works to engage men in a conversation about their health in a relaxed and non-threatening way. By having some fun with a topic they would rather avoid, we are able to reach a population of men who might otherwise ignore traditional health messages.
