HOUSTON (AP) — A Houston craft brewery is releasing a limited-edition beer in tribute to a veteran beer adviser and bartender and his fight against brain cancer.

The Houston Chronicle (http://bit.ly/1aPuRnP) reports Buffalo Bayou Brewing will release the beer, called Sick in the Head, on Friday.

The brew is in honor of Joey Williams, a beer department manager at a Spec's liquor store in downtown Houston and former bartender at the Flying Saucer in downtown Houston. In July 2011, he was diagnosed with brain cancer and embarked on a treatment regimen of more than six months.

Cleared by his oncologist, Williams is joining with Buffalo Bayou Brewing to raise money for cancer research.

Each 22-ounce bottle will sell for $10, with $3 going to the Christus Stehlin Foundation for Cancer Research.
