If you’ve been to Humble Beginnings Brewing Co. in Ingleside and spoken to the owners, Pierre Doucette and Susan Wallwork, then you probably know how important cystic fibrosis research is to them. In fact, it’s written on the can of their 65 Roses Red IPA!

Since Humble Beginnings opened its doors four years ago, Pierre and Susan have been brewing a special charity beer to support finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. So far, they’ve been able to raise approximately $17,500 and are looking forward to adding to this total this year.

“Cystic fibrosis is a cause very close to our family and we know that every dollar raised makes a difference” stated Pierre. “We’ll continue to do everything we can to support the cause until there is a cure!”

This year, the couple have also added a new product to their fundraising efforts. They are selling 65 Roses socks to support the “Walk to Make Cystic Fibrosis History” that will be held at the end of the month on May 29th. Socks are $18 a pair and 100% of the proceeds ($8.25 a pair) will be donated to cystic fibrosis. Socks are available at Humble Beginnings and Farran’s Footwear, both in Ingleside.

“We are incredibly grateful to our brewery friends that come together with us to support cystic fibrosis” said Susan. “There have been incredible advancements made in cystic fibrosis treatments, but there is still more to be done.”
