Prescott Brewing Company Plans "Heroes 19" to Benefit Fallen Granite Mountain Hotshots

Posted By on Thu, Jul 11, 2013 at 4:37 PM

As officials declare the Yarnell Hill Fire completely contained, and after Billy Warneke, one of the 19 members of the Granite Mountain Hotshots who died fighting the blaze, was honored yesterday in Marana, Arizonans continue to find ways to benefit the families of firefighters who were lost.

Prescott Brewing Company has announced that they will begin brewing a commemorative beer, "Heroes 19," next week, with plans to donate all proceeds from the beer's sales to the families of the fallen firefighters:

PBC has volunteered to brew a special commemorative beer next week at our production plant here in Prescott in collaboration with the 40 or so INDEPENDENT craft breweries who are members of the AZ Craft Brewers Guild. It will contain 19 varieties of hops and this beer will have a color of 19 (on our color scale) all being donated by the individual breweries, with all the specialty malts being donated by Briess Malting in Wisconsin. 60 barrels of beer (1860 gallons, over 14,000 Pints) Brewed & kegged in Prescott and distributed to our member breweries all over the state for sale on draft with all the proceeds going to Prescott Firefighters Charities. Hensley Beverage is helping with all the distribution & keg coordination, maybe other distributors as well. "Heroes 19" American Brown Ale should hit the taps around the end of the month.

No word yet on whether or not Heroes 19 will be available in Southern Arizona. For more information, head to Prescott Brewing Company's Facebook page.
