“The Denver Rare Beer Tasting is recognized as one of the top events in craft beer and we’re excited to return to our roots this year. Our first four events were held at the Wynkoop Brewery, so hosting this year at a brewery brings us full circle,” said Rick Lyke, founder of Pints for Prostates. “The generosity of the participating breweries enables Pints for Prostates to reach people through the universal language of beer with an important health message. We’ve been able to provide free health screenings for thousands of people over the years because the craft beer community has made the Denver Rare Beer Tasting an annual celebration of beer passion.”

Pints for Prostates is a 501(c)3 non-profit charity and all net proceeds from Denver Rare Beer Tasting go towards the group’s awareness mission, education and support programs, and free prostate cancer screening programs.

“We created the Denver Rare Beer Tasting to be a special experience for beer fans and brewers, with a mission,” said Lyke. “This event reminds people about the importance of early detection in fighting prostate cancer. A simple blood test in 2008 saved my life and we want people to understand that paying attention to regular health screenings can help them to take charge of their health.”

Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths among men in the U.S. The National Cancer Institute estimates that approximately 299,010 new prostate cancer cases will be diagnosed in 2024, with 35,250 U.S. deaths from the disease. Prostate cancer is nearly 100 percent survivable when detected early and properly treated. There are currently more than 3.4 million survivors of prostate cancer in the U.S.
