Homefront IPA is a collaborative beer developed in 2011 by Fremont Brewing Company and Center of the Universe Brewing Company in order to raise money and awareness for Operation Homefront. Operation Homefront is a charity that provides emergency assistance to our military heroes and their families. Aged on Louisville Slugger maple bats, this IPA does more than just quench your thirst, it improves the lives of our soldiers. All proceeds from the sale of this beer go to the local Operation Homefront chapters.
In 2012, in addition to the efforts of Fremont and Center of the Universe breweries, Cigar City, Perennial Artisan Ales, SlyFox, St. Arnold’s and 21st Amendment breweries joined forces to expand this effort nationwide. This year, the brewery list has grown! We now have 9 participating breweries!
We have also brought on more sponsors from around the craft brewing industry to increase the amount of money raised for the cause. Homefront IPA made its 2013 debut on May 23rd, just in time for Memorial Day.
The 2013 Homefront IPA bats (one from each of the 9 participating breweries) are up for auction until June 3rd at 10:30pm.
