Honor Brewing Company not only makes quality craft beer, but they honor those who serve our country while giving back to charities for the fallen and injured. In the last 16 months, Honor has raised and donated over $150,000 to charities of the fallen and injured. Most recently raised $32,000 for The Boot Campaign in Dallas, TX. Honor is currently distributed in Virginia, North Carolina, Michigan, Florida, Georgia, Nevada, Tennessee, Texas, Minnesota and more states coming on board over the next 12 months. They honor veterans and the fallen by raising a glass of their special craft beer in their memory, dedicating a six pack with their tribute story or they honor them by placing custom dog tags in their Tribute Tap in their memory at respective locations throughout the country in the veteran’s home town.
Honor Brewing Company (honorbrewing.com) has formed a partnership with Total Wine & More in several locations in the state of Florida. The initial two craft beers launched are the Honor Golden Ale and Honor India Pale Ale. These two craft beers are available in 12 oz bottles/24 pack case and in kegs.
David Keuhner, Partner, Honor Brewing Company, states,“Our goals at Honor are very simple. We honor those who serve our country while giving back. It’s not always about money, it’s about giving of oneself and understanding these men, women and their families have volunteered to serve our country. My family and my business partners’ families have served over 75 years of service to our country and now it’s time to do more. We look at craft beer as a way to raise a glass in their honor while celebrating their commitment, loyalty and courage for serving country. It’s our way of saying Thank You and Never Forgetting.”
Honor will be honoring over a dozen men in Florida and over two dozen have been registered online for the Tribute Tap program. Supporters of our fallen heroes and military are able to pick up the craft beer at participating locations throughout Florida.
