INGLESIDE — Humble Beginnings Brewing Co. (HBBCo.) wrapped up their second annual cystic fibrosis fundraiser on October 25, by presenting Cystic Fibrosis Canada with a cheque for over $5,700.

HBBCo. continued to provide their support in the fight to cure cystic fibrosis (CF) with the spring release of a second beer in their “65 Roses” collection, “Cystic Fibrewski Red American Pale Ale”. All sales from the beer, plus any tips collected in May, contributed to the donation made to Cystic Fibrosis Canada.

In total, $5,704 was raised from the initiative this year. “We were very happy with the results of our second fundraiser” said Pierre Doucette, co-owner of HBBCo. “Supporting the CF community is important to us and we’re very grateful to everyone that purchased the beer.”

So far, just over $11,500 has been raised by HBBCo. through their fundraising efforts and staff hope to continue to build on the initiative in 2020. For more information about the initiative, please contact Humble Beginnings Brewing Co. at info@humblebeginningsbrewing.ca or (613) 522-0725.

About Cystic fibrosis

Cystic fibrosis is the most common fatal genetic disease affecting Canadian children and young adults. It is a multi-system progressive disease that affects mainly the lungs and the digestive system. In the lungs, where the effects are most devastating, a build-up of thick mucus leads to progressive loss of respiratory function. Mucus also builds up in the digestive tract, making it difficult to digest and absorb nutrients from food. As improved therapies have helped to address the malnutrition issues, ultimately most deaths related to cystic fibrosis are due to lung failure. There is no cure.
