On 29 September, 2012, Weyerbacher’s Visitors Center was given the opportunity to help in a surprise ‘Welcome Home’ reception for the family and friends of a US Naval Officer coming home from deployment to Afghanistan. His wife told us “he was looking forward to filling his Merry Monks growler as soon as he got home.” Weyerbacher Visitors Center employees decorated the otherwise pretty spartan [and industrially ugly] tasting area with streamers, banners, flags and balloons along with two banners supplied by the soldier’s wife… one of which was finger painted by their kids and could even make a brick cry. Regardless of your stance on the war and related politics, this was an opportunity for the brewery to do something for the friends and family of someone serving our country. We thank Lt. Commander Patterson for his service and welcome him home! Cheers!
