Brewers team up on beer to help military families

RICHMOND, Virginia (WXOW) - Craft breweries from around the country are teaming up to raise money for military families by selling a beer aged on baseball bats.

   
The Hops for Heroes project began in 2011 as a collaboration between Center of the Universe Brewing Co. in suburban Richmond and Fremont Brewing Co. in Seattle.
   
This year, the list also includes breweries in Florida, Pennsylvania, Missouri, Arizona, Colorado and California.
   
Homefront IPA is being released in time for Memorial Day. It is brewed with orange peel and aged by soaking with unfinished Louisville Slugger maple bats.
 
Using the same recipe, the participating breweries will sell the beer in bottles and kegs in their areas.
   
All proceeds are being donated to local chapters of Operation Homefront. The national organization provides emergency financial assistance to military families.
