Here's more about the brewery and its commitment to veterans, straight from the company's website.
Honor, Courage and Commitment are words we live by even after uniformed service to our country. We are those who suffered in harm’s way, those who volunteered to step up and defend, and those who gave all. We are veterans, proud through and through, constantly striving for excellence, forever in service of our countrymen...... you.
Smitty’s Brewing is a veteran owned and veteran run business that will always strive to maintain a minimum of 50% employees as veterans. While it's one way we support our veteran brothers and sisters, another is 5% of our annual profits will directly benefit homeless vets.
