MILITARY THEMED BEER COMPANY SET TO LAUNCH IN IOWA THIS SPRING

Employing Vets / Proceeds Going to Local Veteran Organizations and Causes


Ladora, Iowa, March 27, 2014 – Old Legion Brewing Company announces the launch of its beer company statewide this spring. The military themed beer company will build its entire product line around the U.S. military with proceeds from its beer sales and web-based sales going to support local veteran causes.

“Our beer offers the consumer a unique way to connect with our veterans and raise money and awareness for veteran’s causes,” states Old Legion’s Founder and President Dimitri Makedonsky (both an Army and Air Force Veteran). “Not only are we providing the community a terrific product, we’re giving back to those who have given so much to all of us.”

Old Legion’s first beer coming off the line will be its “Big Gun Lager.” “It’s a lighter bodied beer designed to appeal to the masses,” states Makedonsky. The distinctive can features a cannon in silhouette that emphasizes its military legacy. The back of each can contains a section profiling an Iowa Veteran who went “above and beyond the call of duty.” Near the top of the can, there’s a short message informing the consumer that the product is American made, veteran owned, and that proceeds from the sale of Old Legion beers support local veteran causes, and directs them to the website for more information.

The company intends to hire veterans as account managers throughout the state, not only telling the “Old Legion story” but their stories as well. Plans are to launch the brand statewide by Memorial Day. More information can be found at www.oldlegionbrewing.com.
