We are releasing our NRB Warrior Wheat* Thursday, November 1. We will be having a kick off event and $1 from each pint of Warrior Wheat sold from 6-8pm will go to the Travis Mills Foundation right here in Maine. Proceeds from Warrior Wheat through the whole month of November will be going to the foundation as well. A representative from the Travis Mills Foundation will be here to answer any questions you have.
“For many, many years I as a homebrewer with my brewing partner Steve Lilley. We brewed for a long time in the garage. He had a brother-in-law who was killed in the line of duty, Capt. Chris Sullivan. Steve worked up a recipe and I knew when we had this place up and running, I wanted to use it to be able to make a donation and honor veterans in the month of November.” - Michael Schuler (Co-Owner & Brewer)
Sullivan, a native of Princeton, MA joined the military in 1998 while in college at Worcester Polytechnic University and after peacekeeping missions in Kosovo and Germany, was deployed to Iraq as a part of Iraqi Freedom in January 2004. A year later, on January 18, 2005, while on patrol in Baghdad , Sullivan, 29 at the time, was killed by an improvised explosive device. It was two weeks before he was scheduled to return home.
We donate to the Travis Mills Foundation as a recommendation from Chris Sullivan’s parents, James and Dorothy Sullivan.
*Warrior Wheat (5.1 ABV Pint pours)
This is our take on a traditional Dunkelweizen, a German dark wheat beer with deliciously complex malt and bittered with Warrior hops to balance it out. The beer is bready like toast and murky from the wheat ale yeast. This beer goes well with a toast to our service members that keep us free to enjoy such a bountiful life. A portion of the proceeds from each pint will go to the Travis Mills Foundation right here in Maine.
