Help start a conversation; look for Pints for Prostates crowns on bottles of Bell's beer


After a successful first year, we are again proud to work with Pints for Prostates.

This year, more than 40 craft breweries (up from 14 in 2015) across 26 states are using special Pints for Prostates crowns to help encourage men to talk with their doctors about scheduling health screenings. 

This nationwide effort will coincide with National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month in September. 

“The craft beer community has been incredibly supportive of the Pints for Prostates mission and generously assisted us in getting our message to millions of men over the last eight years,” said Rick Lyke, in a press release. 

Lyke is a prostate cancer survivor who started Pints for Prostates in 2008 after successful treatment for the disease.

“If Pints for Prostates Crowns for as Cure reaches just one guy who benefits from a prostate health screening, then the effort will be a huge success," he continued.

We will be spreading our supply of crowns across as many brands and bottling runs as possible in order to help reach as many people as we can. 

If you spot one of these special crowns, help us continue the conversation by sharing a photo on social media and use the hashtag #CrownsforaCure and tag @pints4prostates. Include the brewery name too (we are @bellsbrewery on Twitter and Instagram) along with the location where you found it.

For more information, along with a complete list of participating breweries, go here. 

And be sure to keep an eye out for details on an upcoming Pints for Prostates fundraiser at the Eccentric Cafe in downtown Kalamazoo.

Below is a video from Larry Bell, a prostate cancer survivor, that we shared last year.
