Barb’s Beer: Seattle Launch

Did you ever think drinking a beer could help find a cure for cancer? Well now it can. At 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 11 Barb’s Beer was launched in Seattle at Serious Pie & Biscuit in Westlake.

Here are the details about this great program..

MISSON: Barbara Murphy was a great runner. She was a talented interior designer and a wonderful wife, mother and friend. In 2007, Barb was diagnosed with non-smoker’s lung cancer out of the blue and fought it valiantly before passing away in December, 2013. She never complained. Instead she focused on doing what she could to create awareness for this disease which afflicts a quarter million Americans a year, including 30,000 people – mostly women – who like, Barb, never smoked.

PROGRAM: Barb’s family created the idea of “Barb’s Beer” — a beer that would be brewed specifically to raise awareness and funds for finding a cure for lung cancer. Originally launched and brewed by North Sound Brewing Co., our very own Brewer, Bryan Krueger, was passed the baton over the summer, and Boundary became the official brewers of Barbs Beer!!

We are directly involved with the Barb’s Beer Foundation – marketing to restaurants and taverns to put Barb’s Beer on their taps. The goal is to raise funds to support research to find a cure for lung cancer. Funds will be directed to Cancer Grace, a project founded by Barb’s oncologist, Dr. Howard West, a physician and nationally recognized cancer research specialist at Swedish Hospital in Seattle.
