Seth Jordan is a Marine Corps Veteran who served in Afghanistan as a UH-1 Helicopter Pilot. While drinking beer with some fellow Veterans, Jordan realized that he wanted to provide not only a beer for Veterans, but also a beer that will help everyone who opens a can, the chance to learn more about and toast a hero.
Dog Tag Brewing is based out of Belgrade, Montana and each can of Dog Tag Beer is marked with information about a fallen U.S. Servicemember. As Jordan mentions in the video below, Dog Tag Brewing is hoping to “reinvent the toast”.
Dog Tag Brewing works with Gold Star Families and details the stories of their fallen loved ones on each of their cans. Dog Tag Brewing also donates to local impact projects of remembrance selected by each family to individually honor their fallen warriors.
From Dog Tag Brewing’s Facebook Page:
We are working as fast as we can to make sure this product can be enjoyed in all 50 states. We will make an exciting announcement very soon regarding a partnership that will enable us to expand quickly and help you to locate our beer where you live. Please stick with us as we work to do this as quickly as possible – we will be posting all updates to this Facebook page.
If you would like to have your fallen hero included in our mission, please remember that it must be the wish of each hero’s family. We only create dedication cans once we have the full consent of the authorized next of kin, who always contacts us first. It is done this way to ensure we meet their wishes and so that we can be in the best position to support their local impact project of remembrance.
Dog Tag Brewing was designed to be a movement, not a company. We recently erected the Dog Tag Brewing Foundation (DTBF) which will receive 100% of all future profits from Dog Tag Brewing. The Foundation’s mission is to support and enhance Gold Star Family initiatives aimed at preserving and honoring the legacies of their loved ones. The Foundation’s Board of Directors is comprised of all OIF and OEF veterans who have recently transitioned to the private sector and who are committed to our fallen brothers and sisters.
It has been such a joy to see what was once an idea turn into a movement with the support of tens of thousands of Americans. Let’s collectively support this movement and continue to warm the hearts of the families we support.
Semper Fidelis & Always Faithful,
Seth – DTB Founder
