When & Where
The Beer For Brains Foundation
Who We Are
The Beer for Brains Foundation is a national, non-profit organization of craft-beer lovers, distributors and brewers, who are committed to:
- Raising public awareness about brain cancer
- Engendering compassion for its victims and
- Helping fund groundbreaking research leading to a cure.
Based in Phoenix, AZ, we also are one of only a handful of beer industry-related charities currently operating in the United States.
What We Do
Each year, we stage unique, large-scale craft-beer appreciation/fundraising events across the country, working independently or in partnership with breweries and local organizations. Our events run the gamut from open parties featuring huge assortments of rare, craft beers and an equally diverse – and off-beat – assortment of foods and entertainers to local chef beer-wine food pairing competitions, special craft-beer educational dinners and much more. BFBF events are all about having fun while supporting a worthy cause.
The money we raise currently goes to support the development of cutting-edge brain cancer research and treatment options at the new Barrow Brain Tumor Research Center (BTRC), in Phoenix, AZ. The BTRC is part of the Barrow Neurological Institute, one of the nation’s leading centers for brain tumor imaging, brain tumor surgery, cancer research and stem-cell science. Led by a team of clinical and scientific experts, the center runs brain tumor clinical trials and looks for ways to rapidly incorporate new scientific discoveries into patient treatments.
