At Hops & Handlebars, we are committed to fostering community by highlighting local Sacramento creatives, makers, and businesses in fundraising efforts via donations and sponsorship; sharing stories about people’s experience with prostate cancer; educating the Sacramento community about prostate cancer prevention, treatment and support; and remembering Dr. Benjamin Pessah by telling his family’s story.


Hops & Handlebars is organized by Anna and Ryan Pessah, in memory of Dr. Benjamin Pessah - Ryan's father. Dr. Pessah was a humble podiatrist who cared deeply for his family and patients. Dr. Pessah was diagnosed with an aggressive prostate cancer in February 2014 and passed away in April 2016. 


We love to highlight our local Sacramento beer scene. Stay tuned for details on which local breweries we are partnering with this year!
