2023/2024 CAMPAIGN

One in Eight has teamed up with Scars are Beautiful for this year's campaign. Founder Jess Klembara started the campaign several years ago after receiving diagnoses for significantly high-risk factor percentages for breast, ovarian, and pancreatic cancer. After undergoing preventative treatment, which included a double mastectomy, she created the Scars are Beautiful campaign to bring awareness to women's health and embrace the beauty of scars.


We encourage brewers to experiment and brew their own version of a One in Eight beer. CLS-X-14 works well in lighter beer styles like pilsners, lagers, and blondes but also does well in hoppier beers when combined with other varieties.This year, we're offering several "1in8" lots from four other hop varieties: late-harvested Cascade, El Dorado®, early-harvested CTZ, and Comet. Choose from any of the varieties for your beer and $2/lb from all sales is donated.



In 2017, owner of CLS Farms Shelley Desmarais battled breast cancer for the second time during hop harvest. Fast-forward one year to harvest of 2018, she came back healthy and ready to lend a hand to other women who struggled with breast cancer. That year, Steve Luke of Cloudburst Brewing and CLS Farms teamed up to brew a fresh hop beer named One in Eight — a nod to the number of women diagnosed with breast cancer. The following year, Icicle Brewing’s Pam Brulotte, a longtime friend, and fellow breast cancer survivor, brewed the second annual 1in8 fresh hop beer. Since those first two beers, the campaign has expanded to include dozens of commercial brewers and over $50,000 donated to Wellness House of Yakima. 

The goal of One in Eight is to impact communities of all sizes across the world. Since 2017, organizations like Reto Ensenada, Wellness Place of Wenatchee, Pink Ribbon Girls, Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and more. Several breweries have organized educational events or mobile health screening services coinciding with their One in Eight beer release. We encourage #1in8 brewers to find an organization in their community to support, extending the impact beyond the Yakima Valley.
