PORTLAND, Ore. –– Cascade Brewing has announced a collaboration with Team Rubicon on a Veterans Day beer. Cascade will release Continued Service IPA on Veterans Day––Monday, Nov. 11––on draft and in 16-ounce cans at its two Portland pubs, as well as on tap at various establishments throughout the Portland area.
Continued Service is an American IPA featuring the Yakima Chief Hops 2018 Veterans Blend, which includes Cashmere, Centennial, Ekuanot, Mosaic and Simcoe hops. Bright tropical fruit aromas, including pineapple, mango, lychee and guava, complement tropical hop flavors along with a balanced bitterness and dry finish.
Cascade has committed to donating 100% of the proceeds from sales of Continued Service to Team Rubicon, a veteran-led disaster response non-profit that unites the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders to rapidly deploy emergency response teams to provide immediate relief to those impacted by disasters and humanitarian crises.
Additionally, Yakima Chief Hops donates $3 from every pound sold of the 2018 Veterans Blend, used in this project, to the Semper Fi Fund, a non-profit that provides immediate financial assistance and lifetime support to post 9/11 combat wounded, critically ill and catastrophically injured service members.
