A photo of a beer —and the folk, who, by enjoying it, were honoring a slain veteran of the Iraq and Afghan campaigns— that was tapped and served on Veterans Day, 11 November 2014, at William Jeffrey's Tavern, in Arlington, Virginia, in honor of slain Marine Lance Corporal Daniel R. Bennett. Some of the proceeds from each pint sold were donated to organizations that benefit injured veterans and families of slain military personnel. Read more about the program, at Honor Brewing.
The beer was Honor Saison, from Honor Brewing (of Chantilly, Virginia).
Aromatic flowers, lemon, noble hops and a dominate [sp] yeasty nose. Delicate pilsner malt flavors, grassy hops, tart hibiscus, lemon, herbs, and farmhouse yeast. Crisp mouthfeel with elevated carbonation that produces champagne like bubbles. Easy drinking.Alcohol by volume: 4.9%
International bittering units: 25
About the photo, itselfI took the photo without a flash. Using photo editing software, I altered the original to leave only the beer in color (and the candle behind it), but the beer appears slightly out-of focus. In a second shot, I focused on the beer; now, the man at the table is in blurry motion.
Here is the original photo, unmanipulated, taken without a flash.
