Veterans Brewing Ltd was established on the 11/11/2014. Armistice Day. The UK’s first craft brewery owned by, run by, and supporting veterans.
Tommy and Alex who have been firm friends through shared experiences in the same regiment, got into a conversation at a regimental dinner regarding separate projects they were both involved in. Tommy with the brewing company and Alex with setting up a charity to benefit veterans. The two decided to pool their resources and started selling their first Golden Ale ‘Our Scottish Heroes’ with 5 pence from every bottle sale going to the charity, and thus the Veterans Brewing company seed was planted. After the success of bottles of Our Scottish Heroes real ale the idea of building a company which could potentially offer employment to military veterans was born.
We won’t give up the fight to support veterans who need our help. “We didn’t leave them on the Battlefield and we won’t leave them to struggle today”.
