Beer for Veterans
We are fortunate to have brave men and women who answer the call, who fight for freedom, who continue to put themselves in danger throughout the world to provide security for us and our allies. We feel compelled to give back to these patriots and one local Veteran suggested we let folks buy Veterans a beer. The very next day, we printed up some beer tickets and started our Beer for Veterans program.
How it Works
Our generous patrons purchase beer tickets designated for a Veteran. We store these tickets behind the counter and offer tickets to any military folks we see who come in. We also encourage Veterans who come in to spread the word to other local folks who have served. We also keep a keen eye for folks paying with military credit union cards. We also store the tickets in an ammo box that often gets the attention of military folks and gives us a chance to explain the program.
During Veteran’s day weekend, Luppoleto will match each ticket purchased!
It is just a very small way our business and our community can show support for those brave men & women (and their families) who make such incredible sacrifices to keep us safe.
We were honored to recieve these 2 framed photos (featued above) from local veterans: Charlie & Harold. They were gifted to us for our support of Veterans thru this small, 1-drink at a time, token of our appreciation.
Both Harold & Charlie use photography to offer repreive from PTSD and other combat related challenges.
Check out their work below and support their art by purchasing prints!
