Four Peaks releases The Joy Bus WOW Wheat Ale, a beer benefiting homebound cancer patients
Today marks the launch of The Joy Bus WOW Wheat Ale, a charitable wheat beer brewed in collaboration with The Joy Bus.
A bit of backstory on The Joy Bus: When restaurateur Jennifer Caraway’s friend Joy was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2011, Caraway comforted her the best way she knew how: with amazing food. Seeing the impact quality meals and camaraderie had on Joy inspired Caraway to create The Joy Bus, a program that employs compassionate volunteers to deliver healthy, chef-inspired meals to homebound cancer patients across Phoenix. To help fund the program, Caraway opened The Joy Bus Diner in 2016. The program has since delivered thousands of meals to people battling cancer.
A percentage of each bottle, can, and pint of WOW—a wondrous, orange peel-infused wheat beer—goes straight to The Joy Bus, helping Jennifer and her volunteers elevate the quality of life for homebound cancer patients through home-cooked meals and friendly conversation. A beer that not only tastes great, but also supports a great cause? WOW.
WOW is an American-style wheat ale brewed with sweet orange peel and fermented with our house yeast. At 5.0% ABV, it’s packed with bright, sweet citrus flavors balanced by soft wheat and notes of apple and apricot.
WOW is our second collaboration with The Joy Bus. The first, The Joy Bus RAD IPA, was released in June. Sales have resulted in more than $10,000 raised for The Joy Bus since the beer’s release.
Bottles of WOW Wheat Ale are available now in stores throughout Arizona, and 15-packs of cans will be released in early 2021. Locate a six-pack near you with our Beer Finder.
