Have a beer for the fallen

Postby SkullCop » Wed Mar 21, 2018 11:01 am

I saw an add and had to look this place up. I am not a huge beer drinker but I am going to give this a try.

How awesome!!! So this is a beer made by DogTag Brewing Company and on each beer is info on a fallen military victim an how they died for their country! Even better is that from every beer sold, proceeds from each is donated to these victims families..Think I just found my new favorite brewery!

Am I not using the system right or do they not sell beer in any of the major Texas cities?

or coffee - De Espresso Liber

Looks like a great business... hope they start selling near me, I'd buy.


Similar business model to De Espresso Liber, except Alex custom roasts coffee... and darn good coffee, roasted to order. The Gold Star Blends are great- and all I drink.

"Victims"??? Never, ever have I heard any military member refer to themselves or a fallen brother as a "victim".

They may have "fallen victim" to an attack of some kind, but none that I knew would ever identify themselves or others as "victims".

Pawpaw,

I agree.

Victim...?

Puh-leeze...

To be fair, in a very quick look at the website/link, I didn't see the word 'victim', though perhaps it may be there...

I have a problem exploiting the sacrifice of these young men and women in the form of a beer label under the guise of donating 100% of profit from a non-profit. Want to show your appreciation, donate your time or write a check directly to legitimate organizations doing good work for veterans and families - Trident House, Lone Survivor Foundation, or the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation.

Or, if you know a recent Vet (or old one for that matter) who needs help, help.

Beer labels is one goofy gimmick and one I'm not likely to trust.

you two missed the point

If one is going to buy beer on occasion anyway, what's wrong with a bit of the proceeds going to a business that gives to causes we believe in? I can promise you one thing, most breweries are keeping 100% of the profits. I routinely shop with veteran owned businesses... often spending more for what I need, just because I believe in the owner or want to support those who served this great nation.

I think it's pretty crappy to belittle a business that supports families of fallen soldiers and then to suggest that only certain organizations you like are worthy. They are a 501(c)(3). Not likely some dishonest gimmick. Do you get up in arms about all businesses that give profits to good causes or support charities? Go read the team's bios on their website- and then rethink your statements about them... that untrustworthy, gimmick pushing group is comprised of decorated combat vets, marine aviators, etc.... not to mention they have turned their business into a charity... so how much do you really give, compared to this group?

I am grateful for whatever amount of time or money you give to your chosen charities... because it's that much more than they would have otherwise had... but remember there will always be someone else who thinks that what you are doing, is not enough.
