CINCINNATI – Rhinegeist Brewery is supporting veterans with its latest brew.
The Cincinnati brewery has 16 veterans on staff and says it often donates to groups that help those after they return from deployment. Its owners will continue those efforts this Veterans Day by donating proceeds from its new beer, Valor.
Valor is a rye porter, Rhinegeist spokeswoman Katie Hoover said.
“A handful of our veterans helped brew (this beer) with our brew team,” she said.
Valor will benefit Mission 22 as well as The Barracks Project. Mission 22 works to end veteran suicide. The Barracks Project helps veterans experiencing homelessness move back into civilian life.
Rhinegeist will also host events in 13 locations to honor veterans.
Those who can’t make it Saturday can still show their thanks with a pay-a-pint-forward initiative.
“Anyone can come between now and Saturday and pre-purchase a pint,” Hoover said. “A veteran has to show up, prove their service in some way, and they’ll get a free pint of beer.”
There will also be postcards on hand for anyone who wants to write a message to someone currently in the service.
