Yes, Memorial Day Weekend is the unofficial start to summer, but let’s not forget what Monday is really about; commemorating and remembering the men and women that protect our country and the American ideals of freedom. As a company that offers only American crafted beers, we at Beerjobber recognize the need to give back and honor the great men and women who have fought tirelessly for our country. It is our privilege to support veterans and servicemen, which include many of our brewers, particularly the man behind Cavalry Brewing.
Mike McCreary, owner-brewer of Cavalry, survived the economic hardship of 2008, as well as war. Forced to redirect his life’s effort, Mike channeled his energy into his true passion in life, beer. Mike started a brewery named Cavalry, in part to share the experience of his service in the U.S. military. On active duty for three years, and in the Army Reserves for 19 years, Mike was deployed to Iraq in early 2003, leaving his pregnant wife behind. As a Civil Affairs officer in Baghdad, Mike and his fellow servicemen fortunately made it back alive, despite extremely dangerous close calls. As a tribute to the servicemen who became his best friends, and all the soldiers who fight for America, Mike decided to honor them through his craft.
Cavalry beers are brewed using traditional English methods on American equipment to create fresh and flavorful ales and stouts that entice even the most discerning palate. Each product is a balance between the barley and the hops to provide an easy drinking ale or stout.
Moreover, Cavalry’s beer names all have a unique story and we invite you to have a closer look at them by visiting The Cavalry Brewing Corner.
Here’s a sampling of the Cavalry beers available on beerjobber.com
Dog Soldier Golden Ale: Fine golden ale while light in color, with citrus aromas.
Hatch Plug Ale: Classic English ale made with pale malt, providing fruity aromas to work with the subtle malt flavors.
Marauder IPA: Grainy maltiness with aromas of figs and lemon grass. Earthy, with a smooth bitter finish.
X’ Limited Edition: Extra special, extra strong English Pale Ale. In the military an ‘X’ means it’s experimental. Like a missile, this beer will only be launched if YOU the drinker deem it so.
Variety Pack: 4 great styles, including the Limited Release and the Seasonal !
So as you celebrate Memorial Day Weekend, remember what the holiday is really about; honoring men and women like Mike McCreary. We encourage everyone to take time to give back to these brave soldiers and veterans any way they can.
We thank these brave men for their service to our great country !
The men of Cavalry: Mike Owner/Brewer, Hatch Plug, Nomad, and Big Wally.
