Craft brewers release beer to support Pennsylvania Veterans Foundation
Just in time for the holiday weekend, beer lovers can lift a cold one to their favorite veteran and know that proceeds from a new IPA on tap today at 22 craft breweries statewide will go to the Pennsylvania Veterans Foundation to support services to veterans.
Breweries in Pennsylvania, an organization of craft brewers, announced they are releasing Hurry Up and Wait, an 8% double IPA “brewed by Pennsylvania Veterans in support of Pennsylvania veterans.”
According to the group’s website, the beer is “brewed with 2400 pounds of Deer Creek Malthouse (West Chester, PA) Keystone Pale, 440 pounds of Pale Oat Malt and 220 pounds Pale Triticale. The hops used for the beer is the Yakima Veteran blend; a group of hops that were hand-selected by a group of veteran-owned breweries from across the USA.”
Craft breweries in Western Pennsylvania scheduled to offer the beer on tap include Burgh’ers Brewing and Couch Brewery, both in Pittsburgh, ShuBrew in Zelienople, Stone Bridge Brewing in Johnstown and Whitehorse Brewing in Berlin.
