The project is an initiative to raise money and awareness on behalf of Veterans by inviting craft breweries to brew a special beer for the project, the proceeds of which are donated to a Veteran charity chosen by the brewery.

NECHV is honored to have been the recipient of the generous donation from the very first special brew. Medusa co-founder and Head Brewer Keith Antul and Co-founder Keith Sullivan visited NECHV to present the $7,100 donation on behalf of themselves, Co-founder Tom Sutter, and all of Medusa Brewing Company and the Black Ale Project. Thank you to all, for your support of Veterans and NECHV!
