Gift of Note: Medusa Brewing Company

The Medusa Brewing Company of Hudson, MA, raised $5,000 for the NECHV through the Black Ale Project, an initiative started by Veteran and founder Dave Pappas. The Black Ale Project invites craft breweries to brew a special beer for the project, the proceeds of which are donated to a Veteran charity of the brewery’s choice.

This is the second time that Medusa Brewing Company has chosen to donate Black Ale Project proceeds to the Center. In 2017, the brewery raised $7,100 for the NECHV. We are grateful to the Medusa Brewing Company for their continued support through this wonderful project!
