Local Breweries Team Up to Honor Vets
Local Fairfax County breweries, led by Fair Winds Brewing Company, are sponsoring a “Buy a Vet a Beer” campaign that will offer a “free beer” on Veteran’s Day to honor those that have served our country.
Fair Winds conceived of the idea in 2016 as a way for the local community and the brewery’s loyal customers to appreciate the veteran and active-duty military community.
Participating is easy! Patrons simply “buy one forward’, meaning they pay for an extra beer that is then earmarked for a vet. As part of their “gift”, they are encouraged to write a personalized note – thanking the veteran for his or her service or sharing a personal story or connection. Vets then can redeem their free beer by taking a letter off the wall and giving it to the beertender.
This year you can buy a “beer for a vet” at the following breweries:
