Did you know Due South Brewing Company is veteran owned and operated? Did you know we work with veterans on a daily basis at our local distributor, Brown Distributing?
With Veterans Day coming up soon on November 11th, we got together with members of our distributor’s team who are veterans on October 17th to craft an incredible beer that will showcase a unique selection of hops that were selected by veterans across the United States!
The beer that we came up with is a Brut IPA (a dry champagne-like beer style) created with late additions of the 2018 Veterans Blend from Yakima Chief Hops.
According to Yakima Chief, this hop blend is “hand-selected by a group of veteran-owned breweries from across the US, representing multiple branches of the US Armed Forces. The blend is comprised of five different Pacific Northwest-grown varieties, providing a beautiful mix of tropical, citrus, and herbal aromas.”
Those five hops are Cashmere, Centennial, Ekuanot (HBC 366), Mosaic (HBC 369), and Simcoe (YCR 14).
In addition to being a great selection of hops, $3 per pound of hops sold will go to the Semper Fi Fund, which is dedicated to providing urgently needed resources and support for post 9/11 combat wounded, critically ill and catastrophically injured members of the United States Armed Forces and their families.
Once the beer is complete, we will host a tapping event at our taproom close to Veterans Day, and will be sending the beer into distribution to great veteran owned bars and restaurants. This is a beer that you won’t want to miss out on, so keep an eye on our social media channels like Facebook and Instagram for the specific release date.
