About Us

Who We Are

We are Canadian military veterans with a purpose.  After years of loyal service to Canada we want to serve again, but in a way that is very unique.

The forces personnel are well-trained,strong and proud, yet working in these various high-stress environments sometimes comes at a price…

Check this short video showing some of the cool stuff we do in the Royal Canadian Army, Navy and Air Force.

The feeling of adrenaline, and that of doing something which makes a difference, often in dangerous environments, does have a down side. Many of our members have suffered operational stress from being in this challenging, dangerous, and high-stress environment for years. We want to help…

Our great nation’s flag. Flying free.

Our Team

We have been fortunate to run our initial operation as non-profit for 21 months solely with volunteers who dedicated their time to help us to promote and sell our beer so we could donate to Military, Veterans and First responder’s programs.

" THANK YOU ALL!!. We would have not been able to be where we are at right now without you!! "
- Graham Hafey

After 21 months of branding, donating and brewing beer through other breweries, we have finally got our own brewery!   A solid team of dedicated staff is being assembled and we are making big plans to make our social venture an even bigger success!
