Jacksonville’s veteran-owned brewery, Veterans United Craft Brewery, launched D-Day IPA, a collaboration beer in honor of those who participated in Operation Overlord over 78 years ago on June 6, 1944.
Originally brewed in 2019 as a collaboration brew between Veterans United and a French brewery for the 75th Anniversary of D-Day, Veterans United continues to brew this beer to pay homage and respect to all those gallant warriors who sacrificed so much on that fateful day to liberate Western Europe and bring the freedom that we all enjoy today.
This “Franco-American”-style IPA was brewed using French malts and American hops.
Made with copious amounts of Citra and Mosaic hops, this juicy, hazy IPA will be sure to please the most ardent IPA fan!
Operation Overlord commences in the taproom!
D-Day IPA is one in a line of the many beers that Veterans United crafts in honor of occasions and causes near and dear to the United States Military, including Watchstander IPA, Scout Dog 44, and more. Since opening in 2014, every beer that Veterans United Craft Brewery has made ties in some way to a theme, cause, or idea relating back to America’s military and veterans of military service.
