WHO WE ARE
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 have an amazing committee of local business-owners, organizers, and community members. Hops & Handlebars is here today because of all the hard work from this amazing team!

WHAT WE DO
Changing the face of men's health
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.
We partner with local breweries and tap rooms to raise money, spread awareness, and foster education about prostate cancer prevention, treatment, and support.
All proceeds for Hops & Handlebars are donated to ZERO - The End of Prostate Cancer. ZERO invests in patient support programs, research, and awareness. They help save lives, educate and test men, and unite communities to make prostate cancer a national priority.
