Fallen Soldiers’ Stories to be told in DC Area


WASHINGTON, DC – January 27, 2016  

6,874 – the number of US service members that served in Iraq and Afghanistan whose lives were cut short. We can’t forget the thousands of active duty military personnel that made the ultimate sacrifice to ensure that the freedoms of United States citizens remain just that – free. These lives matter. These men and women are fathers, mothers, sons, daughters, friends, and heroes. These military heroes must always be honored and never forgotten to ensure their stories live on.  


Honor Brewing Company and Honor Winery pay tribute to fallen soldiers to guarantee they are never forgotten. Not only does Honor make quality craft beers and wines, but also they honor those who serve our country while giving back to charities of the fallen and injured. In the last 18 months, Honor has raised and donated over $200,000 to charities of the fallen and injured. Currently distributed in Virginia, North Carolina, Michigan, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Pennsylvania with many more states coming on board over the next 12 months, they honor veterans and the fallen by either raising a glass of their special craft beer, dedicating a six pack with their tribute story or they honor them by placing custom dog tags in a Tribute Tap in their memory at respective locations throughout the country in the veteran’s home town. 


Honor Brewing Company and Honor Winery have partnered with Madidus LLC based in Washington, DC to distribute their craft beer and wine throughout the DC Metro area. The initial two craft beers launched are the Honor Warrior IPA and the Honor Golden Ale. These two craft beers are available in 12 oz. bottles/24 pack case and in kegs. The wines distributed in the area are 2010 Honor Red Blend, 2013 Honor SERVE Red, 2012 Honor Highest Honor Red, 2014 Honor RRV Pinot Noir, and 2013 Honor SERVE White.


David Keuhner, Partner, Honor Brewing Company and Honor Winery states, “Our goal at Honor is very simple.  We honor those who serve our country while giving back. It’s not always about money – it’s about giving of oneself and understanding these men, women and their families have volunteered to serve our country. My family and my business partners’ families have served over 75 years of service to our country and now it’s time to do more. We look at craft beer and wine as a way to raise a glass in their honor while celebrating their commitment, loyalty and courage for serving country. It’s our way of saying Thank You and Never Forgetting.”

Wine Spectator - Honor Winery Comes to the Aid of Veterans
May 29th, 2014

This past Memorial Day weekend, Unfiltered caught a CNN segment on Honor winery, a Napa- and Sonoma-based wine brand that sells for $50 to $175 a bottle and raises funds for a range of charities that benefit veterans of the armed services and their families. Started in January 2013, Honor is a partnership between retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. Allen Cage, Jr., Destination Cellars founder and CEO David Keuhner and winemaker Sean Meyer. The brand gained momentum this past year when Keuhner received a phone call from Amanda Sheek, requesting a bottle of the wine that had "My Jacob's" boots on it (the Honor label features a pair of military-issue boots created by a design firm), and Keuhner quickly realized he was speaking to the mother of a fallen soldier, Lance Cpl. Christopher Jacob Levy, killed in Afghanistan in 2011...(continued)
