The San Diego Reader recently featured an article on the philanthropic efforts that San Diego breweries are making in their community. A major highlight of the article was on the efforts that the Quality Ale and Fermentation Fraternity (QUAFF) members have made to raise funds to support Sarah’s Miracle Fund. The fund was set up for QUAFF member Miguel Loza’s daughter, Sarah, who is currently battling lymphoma. From the article:
It’s not just beer professionals contributing to the greater good. This month, QUAFF, the reigning national homebrew club of the year, produced a fundraising beer to support the daughter of one of its members, Miguel Loza.
Loza’s young daughter Sarah is battling lymphoma, and the local brewing industry has come together to support Sarah’s Miracle Fund, set up to contribute to the cost of her medical treatment. QUAFF teamed up with Vista’s Indian Joe Brewing to make the #cheers4sarah session IPA, named with a social-media hashtag to facilitate its distribution and sale for a countywide March 10th release.
