Eleven Craft Brewers to Package Homefront IPA in Uniform Can


Eleven different craft breweries will take part in this year's brewing of Homefront IPA with the end products being packaged in the can design shown above. This is a really cool project with the IPA actually being aged on maple Louisville Slugger bats and all proceeds going to Operation Homefront. You can read the full press release below...

HOPS FOR HEROES ANNOUNCES ELEVEN PARTICIPATING BREWERIES IN THE 2014 COLLABORATION OF HOMEFRONT IPA

Hops for Heroes is excited to announce the participating breweries for this year’s brewing of Homefront IPA.

Since 2011, Hops for Heroes has been expanding each year. The dedication to our troops by the craft brewing community can be seen with 11 total breweries participating in 2014. This dedication can also be seen by the growing number of sponsors, including Crown Beverage Packaging USA, who has come on board to supply a uniform can for this year's efforts.

Homefront IPA was developed in 2011 by Fremont Brewing Company and Center of the Universe Brewing Company in order to raise money and awareness for Operation Homefront. Operation Homefront is a charity that provides emergency assistance to military heroes and their families. Aged on Louisville Slugger maple bats, this IPA does more than just quench your thirst; it improves the lives of our soldiers.

Homefront IPA is a unique charity beer in that 100% of the proceeds are donated to Operation Homefront. With the help of 6 participating breweries and other organizations that donated the hops and grains used to make the beer, Hops for Heroes was able to raise roughly $80,000 dollars for Operation Homefront in 2013.

This year, Hops for Heroes is hoping to top $200,000 and is set to brew 800 barrels (24,800 gallons) of beer between the 11 participating breweries. The beers will be debuting a week before Memorial Day.
