Saint Arnold Brewing Company releases Homefront IPA today. The beer is brewed as a part of Operation Homefront, an organization that provides emergency financial aid and other assistance to the families of our service members and wounded warriors.
The single batch release is just in time for Memorial Day Weekend. The IPA is brewed with orange zest.
“This is a community effort, with volunteers showing up to help zest oranges for the recipe and the entire supply chain enthusiastically stepping forward to donate their products and services,” said Brock Wagner, founder/brewer of Saint Arnold Brewing Company. “With our war efforts no longer in the headlines everyday, people quickly lose focus on the sacrifices made by those who have served our country. We hope Homefront IPA brings back some awareness to these issues in addition to the money we will be donating from sales of this beer.”
In 2012, the Saint Arnold and partners raised $125,000 for the cause.
Homefront IPA is part of the collective series of beers raises funds for Operation Homefront, a charity that provides financial assistance to the families of wounded service members. Each of the beers is aged on wood bats donated by Louisville Slugger. Left Hand Brewing’s patriotic (and quite badass) label for their edition of Homefront IPA is seen above. Brewed with dried sweet orange peel, and orange zest.
Operation Homefront Provides Assistance to the families of service members overseas and our wounded warriors at home. Homefront IPA is brewed by craft brewers to support that effort. Left Hand Brewing Co is proud to express our gratitude to our service members who think of others before themselves and put the needs of our nation before their own.
