Celebrate Father's Day and Encourage Dad to Get a PSA Test

Pints for Prostates will use the universal language of beer during Father's Day weekend at eight events -- from Brookline, Mass., to Issaquah, Wash. -- where men will be encouraged to get regular checkups and ask for a PSA blood test the next time they see their doctors.

All funds generated by Pints for Prostates benefit the Us TOO International Prostate Cancer Education and Support Network, a 501(c)3 charity that works to support, educate and advocate for men with prostate cancer and their families. Us TOO was founded in 1990 and has a network of more than 300 local chapter support groups that help men dealing with the disease.

If you are looking for a place to celebrate the day with Dad here are eight great places to do it:

June 20th (11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.): Green Dragon Bistro Brewpub, 928 SE 9th Ave., Portland, Ore.
June 20th (11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.): Rogue Ales Public House, 748 SW Bay Blvd., Newport, Ore.
June 20th (11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.): Eugene City Brewery, 844 Olive St., Eugene, Ore.
June 20th (11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.): Issaquah Brewhouse, 35 W. Sunset Way, Issaquah, Wash.
