(ARVADA, CO) — LUKI Brewery and FlyteCo Brewing have teamed up to create All Veterans Ale created by LUKI Brewer Michael Buchkoski. Both locations will tap the beer on Veterans Day on Thursday, November 11. $1 of every pint will support the Wounded Warrior Project, a nonprofit that supports veterans and active duty service members.
Buchkoski, a private pilot and drone pilot, first became acquainted with FlyteCo Brewing when he was searching for a space to host a pilot meeting. The commonality of Buchkoski’s experience and FlyteCo’s aviation theme spurred conversations about a veterans-themed beer.
“My family has a long tradition of military service dating back to World War II,” says Buchkoski. “As a military veteran with 23 years of service including two combat tours, I understand the sacrifices military service members endure.”
Balanced and drinkable, All Veterans Ale (AVA) is a 5.8% ABV American Pale Ale designed and brewed by a military veteran. In collaboration with FlyteCo Brewing, AVA features a Veterans Hop Blend from Yakima Chief Hops that provide citrus and stone fruit character, as well as a slight bitterness from Cascade and Centennial hops.
“Supporting veterans and brewing beer are two things we love to do,” says FlyteCo Marketing Manager Julianna Hood. “We’re thrilled to be a part of this worthy collaboration.”
$1 of every pint will support the Wounded Warrior Project and their mission to support veterans and active duty service members. The beer will be available at both LUKI Brewery and FlyteCo Brewing on November 11.
“It was truly my honor to have served and retired as a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army. Charitable donations related to the All Veterans Ale (AVA) can make a difference for those who have given so much,” says Buchkoski.
