One of the best things about starting the Veteran Beer Company is becoming aware of other Veteran leaders who are doing great things to move the needle by improving opportunities for Veterans. In the event you didn’t hear about it, check out the Bunker@1871. The Bunker is an incubator for Veteran start-up businesses. Their leader, Todd Connor, and his crew are doing incredible things for Veterans already, and they’re just getting started. The Bunker@1871’s opening event last week had hundreds of people in attendance, representing 45 established firms and 16 (already) Veteran start-ups.
If you’ve never tasted U.S. Army Veteran Johnny Van’s award-winning BBQ, you are missing out on one of life’s great culinary experiences. Johnny provided the BBQ to pair with the Blonde Bomber blonde ale and the Veteran lager. Traditionally you hear about good beer making food taste better, but I honestly believe that Johnny Van’s BBQ makes our beer taste better.
