LONE TREE, CO — Lone Tree Brewing Company will host its annual Brews for CancerBlows dinner on Friday, July 7. The event will feature CancerBlows Coffee IPA brewed in collaboration with Broken Compass Brewing, five Lone Tree beer-paired courses crafted by Chef Paul Worley, and live music by the H2 Big Band and trumpet players from the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. Proceeds from this event will go to CancerBlows and The Ryan Anthony Foundation.
Kenyan Thaita AA roast from Denver’s Boxcar Coffee was added to the CancerBlows Coffee IPA after fermentation. This beer’s light grain bill—comprised of 2-row malt, biscuit malt, crystal malt, and oats— makes way for bold and juicy Mosaic hop additions and lightly roasted, fruit-forward coffee. Lactose is added to convey a coffee-and-cream mouthfeel. Brews for CancerBlows Guests will receive welcome goblets of this beer during a private tour of Lone Tree Brewing with Head Brewer Josh West.
If you would like more information about the Brews for CancerBlows dinner, the CancerBlows Coffee IPA, or Lone Tree’s partnership with The Ryan Anthony Foundation, please contact Emily Hutto at firstname.lastname@example.org.

In 2013 43-year-old Dallas Symphony Orchestra trumpeter Ryan Anthony was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, a terminal bone marrow cancer that typically appears in patients aged 70 and older. Ryan’s musical community rallied around him and when they offered support, he jokingly replied that “we’ll all play a concert when I am healthy again and we’ll call it 'Cancer Blows'”. Ryan is now in remission, and the joke morphed into The Ryan Anthony Foundation, who in 2015 put on CancerBlows, a once-in-a-lifetime musical event bringing together the most famous trumpet players in the world. The event raised more than $1 million with all of the net proceeds donated to the Baylor Health Care Research Foundation and Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation that work toward a cure for cancer.
