A Tasty Way to Support Our Veterans!

Mens Room Original Sausage is a specialty beer bratwurst made in collaboration with 99.9FM KISW's Mens Room radio show, Elysian Brewing, and the Friends of Fisher House Puget Sound. A portion of the proceeds generated by sales of Mens Room Original Red Ale and Mens Room Original Sausage are donated to the Friends of Fisher House Puget Sound which has a fantastic track record of supporting our veterans and their families in times of great need.

The Mens Room is an afternoon talk show that airs on 99.9FM KISW Monday through Friday from 2PM until 6PM. Listeners from all over the world tune in by radio as well as stream the show online. The station is a Seattle staple, first airing over 45 years ago. Since then, Rockaholics everywhere have formed one of the most dedicated fan bases in the radio world.

Far from being a simple radio talk show, The Mens Room has a long history of supporting local businesses and charities. One such effort came in the form of a partnership between KISW, Elysian Brewing, and the Friends of Fisher House Puget Sound. Together they developed the mens Room Original Red Ale. Ever since brewing the first bottle, a portion of the proceeds has been donated to Fisher House VA Puget Sound and Fisher House JBLM. As of 2016, those proceeds total over $570,000 and counting.

Why Fisher House? First and foremost, we support our veterans. They dedicate their lives to serving our country and its citizens and they deserve all the care, respect, and support we can offer. Their sacrifices and selflessness are of the absolute highest order.

Second, the Fisher House Foundation's most widely known mission is absolutely crucial: providing zero cost housing for military veterans' families while their loved ones receive medical treatment. During these families' time of greatest need, the Fisher House Foundation is there to assist. We support that mission wholeheartedly.

Finally, not all charities are created equal and some have questionable track records. The Fisher House Foundation is well respected as evidenced by their stellar reviews on charity watchdog sites. Here are just three examples:

Charity Navigator: 97.17% Overall Rating
Charity Watch: A+ Overall Rating
Public Integrity: Notes the foundation "[...] directed more than 95% of its spending [...] to its programs from 2001-2011"

Giving is a hallmark of responsible community stewardship and ensuring one's contributions are making a real difference to those in need is paramount. We are extremely proud to support the Fisher House Foundation and the amazing work they do.

When you purchase a Mens Room Original Sausage a portion of the proceeds from the beer we buy and the sausage sales are donated to the Fisher House Foundation. With over a million links sold in less than a year since its creation this sausage is not only popular, it is a positive contributor to the wellbeing of our great city and country. What goes better with a nice cold Pacific Northwest beer than a hearty bratwurst? What could make a more satisfying meal than the knowledge that you contributed to a great cause while enjoying the company of friends and family? Buying this sausage is a truly tasty way to support our nation's veterans.
