Veteran-Owned Brewery Opens
MISSION — 5×5 Brewing co. will hold its grand opening celebration in Mission, Saturday, July 14.
Centered on the romantic period of artwork which adorned the noses of aircraft during WWII, they will showcase their “Nose Art Series” of beers which include Brunette Bombshell Honey Brown Ale, Spitfire Golden Ale, Hellcat Belle Red Rye Ale and Liberator Cherry Cream Ale.
The grand opening will be free to the public and will feature a flyover of vintage WWII aircraft, and live music including Marshall Law, Lauren Corzine, Drew and the Dancehall Dreamers and The Howlers. Food trucks will also be on-hand for attendees to purchase food. Drink cards will be available for purchase to sample beer.
5×5 Brewing Co. will also be hosting an exhibit inside the brewery of artwork produced by Veteran artists from the Rio Grande studying at STC.
“It is great to see another example of veterans supporting veterans.” said Misty Hoffman, the organizer of the exhibition, and a veteran artist herself. “Having a partner in the community who is engaged and willing to provide a space to showcase our work is paramount to our future as artists.”
A check presentation will also take place with proceeds from 5×5 Brewing Co.’s “Founders Challenge Coins” going to the Edinburg/McAllen Chapter of Team RWB, an organization that focuses on camaraderie and support of veterans through physical fitness.
“One of the base principles that we live by at 5×5 Brewing Co. is selfless service,” says Sean Downey. “Any and every chance we get, we make sure to give back to both our brothers and sisters in arms as well as the community that supports us every day.”
The grand opening will take place from 2:30 pm – 9:00 pm at 801 N. Bryan Rd., Mission, TX 78572. Call 956-445-5421for more information or visit the event site at:
