Veteran owned and operated Beer Company

Two months ago, Delgado began working for the Veteran Beer Co., a new Chicago microbrewery, where every role — from brewing to sales — is filled by veterans. The company essentially plans to market employees like Delgado to sell their craft beers and employ as many disabled and non-disabled veterans as possible along the way.

Delgado is not only a brand ambassador who sells Veteran Beer at liquor stores and pubs, but since all employees are given shares of the company, he also is a part owner. Not only has the company given Delgado a job and a future, but he also gets to enjoy the camaraderie of fellow veterans, something he was missing after nearly a decade at war.

“It’s a company that truly is going to help veterans,” Delgado said when reached at VBC’s Cold Spring, Minn., brewing facility earlier this month. “There is no other company out there that is going to do that.”

Not sold in the Northeast yet, mostly in their home state of Illinois, so if your traveling through Chicago look for it, and if you find it, bring me back a six-pack.
