About The Guest
Mike Shannon
National Director, Ales for ALS

Mike Shannon is the National Director for the Ales for ALS brewing program that benefits the ALS Therapy Development Institute (ALS TDI) developing treatments and therapies for ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease). Mike has been serving individuals and families in the ALS community for the past 14 years. He feels fortunate to be directing an incredible program that was founded by the Smith family of Loftus Ranches, Yakima Chief, and Bale Breaker Brewing company. The Smith family created Ales for ALS through their direct connection from hops, to brewing, and their familial connection to ALS. The program has raised near $3.5 million in 8 years.
