Craft brewers release beer to support Pennsylvania Veterans Foundation

Deb Erdley

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.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
