Movember is an annual event involving the growing of mustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men’s health issues, including prostate cancer. Cancer prevention is a cause near and dear to Sycamore Brewing’s heart and we are thrilled to be participating in our first ever Movember! The goal of Movember is to “change the face of men’s health” and we are proud to be part of this great cause!
I happily support the creepier look the brewery staff (my husband included) have embraced over the past few weeks in the name of men’s health.
By encouraging men to get involved and grow a sweet ‘stache during the month of November, the Movember Foundation aims to increase the early detection, diagnosis and treatments and reduce the number of preventable deaths.
Our first annual Movember party will take place on Saturday November 29th. We’ll also be releasing our small batch brew, ‘Ironic Hipster Mustache’ which is a hoppy, blond ale brewed with organic cold-pressed pomgranate juice. 100% proceeds of this small batch will be donated to the Movember fund.
Last year the US Movember campaign raised almost 23 million dollars for men’s health organizations. Let’s do our part to make this year an even bigger success!
We’ll have live music provided by the band Hunter’s Travesty, prizes for mustaches, including ‘best in show’, ‘creepiest’ etc and of course tons of good beer and good times.
