“We were beyond devastated to hear about the loss of Lt. Jason Menard,” said David Fields, Managing Partner of Wormtown Brewery. “While it pales in comparison to the sacrifice our local heroes make every day, Worcester’s Bravest is a way we can give back to them and their families. We are honored to be a part of a strong community that will forever cherish his legacy.”

“We said the last time we made this beer together that hopefully we would never have to do it again,” said Christian McMahan, President of Wachusett Brewing Company. “However, when we have the ability to make a difference and support something so meaningful, we will do it each and every time.”

“We’re a tightly bound community,” added Paul Wengender, Founder & President of Greater Good Imperial Brewing Co. “The strength of our community was tested, yet again. If one of our own goes down we will always rally together in vigorous support.”

The beer style for Worcester’s Bravest is a Belgian Wit, a light-bodied, unfiltered, wheat beer. “It has sweet and zesty citrus notes with some complex pepper spice and herbal hops,” said Ben Roesch, Brewmaster of Wormtown Brewery.

“Worcester’s Bravest” will be released on draft in January at each brewery’s tap rooms as well as having a limited amount of cans being made available for sale. Beer launch and fundraising events will take place at each brewery. Wormtown will host their event on Friday January 24th, Wachusett on Saturday, January 25th, and Greater Good on Friday January 31st.

Donations can also be made directly to the Menard Children’s Fund and mailed to the Worcester Fire Department Credit Union, 34 Glennie St, Worcester, MA 01605.
