"I considered giving the Officers and Firefighters a case of shingles, but my VP of
Marketing, Sam Maiden Jr., convinced me that they would rather have a case of
American-owned and American-Brewed American Patriot Beer!"
Beal continued, "Seriously I love these folks, over the years my company has put
a lot of roofs on the homes of these incredibly brave people, who put it all on the
line for all of us every day. I can't begin to imagine what kind of courage it takes
to face down a bad guy or run into a burning building."
"Life has been good to me and this is just a small way of honoring the bonds of
courage and fidelity to duty that these folks share. I hope that this Labor Day, as
they gather with friends and family that everyone will let them know how much
we appreciate the risks they take to keep all of us safe," Beal concluded.
The American Patriot Beer will be available for pick-up at the St. Louis Police Officers
Association Hall at 3710 Hampton Avenue just in time for the Labor Day Weekend.
Sgt. David Bonenberger, President of the St. Louis Police Officers Association
and Demetrius Alfred, President of the St. Louis Firefighters Association said,
"We are absolutely delighted and totally surprised by this generous action
and we know our men and women will enjoy the FREE cases of American Patriot Beer
wholeheartedly and responsibly as all good citizens do!
"On behalf of all our brothers and sisters in the law enforcement and firefighting
professions, and like all those people on TV say, 'Thank you! John Beal."

This is a great good news story and a great VIDEO and PHOTO OP
as 2000 cases of beer are unloaded and given away on a one-case per
police officer and firefighter basis until they are all gone.
