Enjoy a pint and benefit prostate cancer research at the Issaquah Brewhouse.
The brewhouse, 35 W. Sunset Way, hosts the third annual Pints for Prostates from noon – 6 p.m. Thursday.
Employees dressed in doctors’ attire will host a full day of events: hourly bathroom tours and latex glove contests, a toast to Pints for Prostates and bleu ball specials.
Members will be on site with prostate cancer prevention information and apparel. Participants can show their support by wearing prostate cancer awareness wristbands provided by the brewhouse.
One in six men is at risk for developing prostate cancer, the second most common type of cancer among men in the United States. Every year, more than 200,000 American men are diagnosed with the cancer.
“Having a brand like Rogue involved in the campaign will help us reach more men in their late 30s and early 40s,” prostate cancer survivor and founder of the nonprofit Pints for Prostates Rick Lyke said.
