TENNESSEE BREW WORKS & YAKIMA CHIEF HOPS CREATE BEER TO HONOR VETERANS 
Veterans Blend Beer to Benefit Wounded Warriors Family Support Fund

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (Nov 8, 2019) – Tennessee Brew Works and Yakima Chief Hops, a 100% grower-owned global supplier of premium quality hops located in the Pacific Northeast, are partnering together to honor our nation’s veterans by creating a 2019 Veterans Blend beer.

Hopped & Devoted is a Hazy Pale Ale, ABV 5.4%, IBU 20, comprised of five different Pacific Northwest-grown varieties including Simcoe®, Loral® and Ahtanum®.

“Each year we collaborate with military Veteran brewers representing multiple branches of the U.S. Armed Forces to select a different hop blend and nonprofit to receive a donation. A fiscal donation of $3 per pound sold is contributed to the selected nonprofit organization in support of Veterans,” said Mike Goettl, CEO, Yakima Chief Hops.

This year’s donation will be made to the Wounded Warriors Family Support, an organization dedicated to providing support to the families of those who have been wounded, injured or killed during combat operations.

Tennessee Brew Works Head Brewer and U.S. Army Veteran, Matt Simpson, says, “It’s our honor to support veterans and Wounded Warriors Family Support by creating this limited-beer made with hops from one of the premier growers in the country, Yakima Chief. Hopped & Devoted is a hop-forward ale, providing a well-balanced mix of tropical, citrus and floral aromas.”

Hopped & Devoted will be released at Tennessee Brew Works’ Taproom on Friday, Nov. 8, in advance of Veteran’s Day on Nov. 11. Veterans always receive a 10 percent discount with valid veteran’s ID at the Tennessee Brew Works Taproom, 809 Ewing Ave., Nashville.
