Just in case you haven’t been paying attention to your calendar, Memorial Day is this coming Monday, May 25th. Regardless of where you stand politically, I think the vast majority of the nation stands behind our brave men and women in uniform. Craft brewers stand with them as well, which is why Homefront IPA was first created back in 2011.
At the 2015 release event for this beer, you’ll have the opportunity to meet some representatives of Soldiers’ Angels, an organization dedicated to providing aid and comfort to the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, their families and the growing veteran population. You’ll also have the chance to meet some representatives from Joint Base Lewis-McChord. All proceeds from Homefront IPA will benefit Solidiers’ Angels.
Here is some more information about this beer and the release event next Monday from Fremont Brewing Company:
