Veterans across Pennsylvania benefitted from  a Memorial Day beer that was partially made in Delaware County, writes Max Bennett for

The special brew “Adapt and Overcome,” raised $21,349.44 for the Pennsylvania Veterans Foundation.

The Foundation provides assistance and support for Pennsylvania veterans and their families.

The 5.9 percent ABV IPA was released in the state at 20 participating breweries on Memorial Day.

The 20 breweries involved in the production and release of the beer were veteran-owned.

The Deer Creek Malthouse in Glen Mills provided the grain and malt for the special brew. 

The hops came from GEMS Farms Hops in Carlisle.

Manufacture of the beer was split between Gear House Brewing in Chambersburg and 2nd Story Brewing in Philadelphia.

Over the last 8 years more than $2 million has been raised through this annual release of a Memorial Day beer to help veterans.

In 2019, Aston Abbey Brewing in Aston worked with 19 other breweries to create a “Hurry Up and Wait” double IPA that was released over Memorial Day weekend.

That beer was brewed with 2,400 pounds of Keystone Pale, 440 pounds of Pale Oat Malt and 220 pounds of Pale Triticale from Deer Creek Malthouse.
