In a pairing that sees two Aussie legends combine, Young Henrys has partnered with tennis icon Dylan Alcott to bring forth the inaugural Dylan Alfroth Day.
While we’re all familiar with disability advocate, and trailblazing tennis and basketball player Dylan Alcott, and we’re no stranger to a good Young Henrys brew every now and then, the two have now combined into the perfect union, with February 3rd now set to be known as Dylan Alfroth Day, where cracking open a can not only does your tastebuds good, but sees proceeds benefiting the Dylan Alcott Foundation.
For the past ten years, we’ve seen Dylan Alcott soar to great heights, ranking currently at #1 in the quad wheelchair singles category, while his past efforts have seen him honoured with Paralympic medals over the course of the past five years. Although last November saw him announce his intention to retire from professional tennis (though still continuing to play the current 2022 Australian Open), he’s already managed to forge quite the legacy. Of course, his ever-expanding list achievements don’t simply stop at sports, as he’s recently been named 2022’s Australian of the Year.
With his advocacy and global voice for people living with a disability, he’s not only already enriched the lives of many young people by the inspiration he brings forth, but has created the Dylan Alcott Foundation, serving the community by constantly raising money for grants to support Aussies with disabilities to fulfil their dreams.
With their mission being to “help enrich the lives of young people with disabilities by eliminating the barriers of entry to get involved in sport and study through mentoring, grants and scholarships,” Young Henrys has partnered up with Dylan Alcott to see more funds go into the foundation so many more young Aussies can apply for grants and see their dreams become reality.

Once February rolls around, Young Henrys will be contributing their proceeds of sales for the entire month to the Dylan Alcott Foundation to help continue its work with disabled Aussie youths, while making February 3rd an official date in the calendar, cleverly declaring it Dylan Alfroth Day.
Additionally, February 3rd will see local Gadigal artist Jeswri (in cahoots with Young Henrys) unveil a mural in dedication of the Aussie legend in celebration of his achievements at Le Bon Ton in Melbourne.
So, whether you’re a fan of the sport, and all the achievements Dylan Alcott has accomplished throughout his ten-year career, love a bit of Young Henrys with their lagers, pale ale, IPAs, and smashing brews, or are keen to see a bit of money go straight to a foundation that is making a massive difference in young peoples lives, February is your month to put your money where your mouth is, and drink up for Dylan Alfroth Day.
