MEDUSA BREWING CO RAISES $10,000 FOR VETERANS

FOR THE SECOND TIME, MEDUSA BREWING CO. (HUDSON, MA) HAS PARTNERED WITH THE BLACK ALE PROJECT TO RAISE FUNDS IN SUPPORT OF VETERAN CHARITIES

"HUDSON'S HEROES" TRULY A HEROIC BEER 

HUDSON, MA - December 15, 2017 - When Dave Pappas, Black Ale Project founder, asked the owners of Medusa Brewing Co. if they'd be interested in participating in the program for a second time, the trio had already made up their minds. In 2016, Medusa Brewing became the first brewery to work with the newly-founded program, and helped Dave to get things launched. That raised and donated over $7000 that year, and since, over XXX breweries have participated in the program.

 

About the Black Ale Project

Dave Pappas, founder of beer-journal.com, 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 Marine and non-combat veteran of the Persian Gulf War, supporting our country’s war veterans is a cause that means a lot to Dave.

The Black Ale Project itself isn’t a charity organization but an idea Dave came up with to help veterans. For breweries that do not package and sell their beer, the beer they brew in support of the cause will get a dedicated tap at their brewery until it is gone. Dave does not handle the money at any time during the process; the net proceeds will simply be donated directly from the brewery to a veteran charity of the brewery’s own choosing.

The first batch of black ale has been brewed by Medusa Brewing Company. Each subsequent batch will be brewed by a different craft brewery, with no two beers being exactly the same. What will remain the same is that 100% of the net profit from every batch will go to help our war veterans in need.

It’s simple: buy a beer, help a veteran. Visit blackaleproject.org now!
