Locust Lane Craft Brewery Selling ‘Dancing Diamonds’ Beer Benefiting THON

Locust Lane Craft Brewery is once again selling craft beer For The Kids.

The brewery located “just outside of Philly,” founded by three Penn State alumni, and named after the State College street is donating a portion of its profits toward THON for the fourth year in a row.

Locust Lane will donate $4 from every four-pack of the Dancing Diamonds hazy Amber Lager it sells to THON’s 2022 fundraiser. Each pack runs for $14 apiece and can be picked up in-store or shipped statewide.

The Skeller Keller, named after the founders’ favorite State College dive bar, was rebranded as this year’s Dancing Diamonds. The 5.5% ABV beer has a crispy, bready, and toasty malt flavor. It’s dry-hopped with Hallertau and Motueka hops, giving it a spicy, herbal finish.

The gold-latticed can features THON’s signature gold ribbon, which symbolizes childhood cancer awareness.

Each month, the brewery features a different local cause or nonprofit. In January, Locust Lane Craft Brewery featured THON as its monthly Community Cup. Half of the profits from the $20 cup were donated to THON.

We dance in 11!
