It’s simple: buy a beer, help a veteran!
Join us on Friday Nov 8 for the release of our Black Ale Project beer – Lima Hotel Porter
The beer will be available on draft and growlers to go.
100% of the profits from the beer will be donated to Friends of Woburn Veterans, a group of volunteers established in October 2011 to support various veteran’s projects throughout the City of Woburn.
More about the Black Ale Project:
Dave Pappas is partnering with breweries across the country to support the Black Ale Project, a craft beer initiative to raise money and awareness on behalf of U.S. war veterans. As a former active duty Marine and non-combat veteran of the Persian Gulf War, supporting our war veterans is a cause that means a lot to Dave. The Black Ale Project itself isn’t a charity organization but an idea he came up with to help veterans in need.
Each Black Ale Project beer is brewed by a different craft brewery, with no two beers being exactly the same. For breweries that do not package their beer (or choose not to for the Project), the beer they brew in support of the Black Ale Project is poured in their taproom until it sells out. Dave does not handle the money at any time during the process; the funds are donated directly by the brewery to a veteran charity of the brewery’s own choosing.
The Black Ale Project has raised over $150,000 for more than fifty different veteran charities and continues to raise money every week through the sale of beers by participating breweries. Please click here for a list of breweries that have brewed beer for the Black Ale Project, as well as breweries that are on board to release beer in the future.
