Dave Pappas 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 active duty Marine and non-combat veteran of the Persian Gulf War, supporting our war veterans is a cause that means a lot to Dave. The Black Ale Project itself isn’t a charity organization but an idea he came up with to help veterans in need.

Each Black Ale Project beer is brewed by a different craft brewery, with no two beers being exactly the same. For breweries that do not bottle and/or can their beer (or choose not to for the Project), the beer they brew in support of the Black Ale Project will get a dedicated tap in their taproom until it sells through. Dave does not handle the money at any time during the process; the funds will be donated directly by the brewery to a veteran charity of the brewery’s own choosing.

Please click here for a list of breweries that have brewed a beer for the Black Ale Project so far, as well as breweries that are on board to release a beer in the future. Dave is continually in discussions with breweries; their names will be announced as they are confirmed.

It’s simple: buy a beer, help a veteran!
