Doylestown Brewing Company and Travis Manion Foundation (TMF) announced today that the “If Not Me, Then Who…” Blonde Ale is now available in 16 oz. cans at Citizens Bank Park and in select distributors and bars across the Greater Philadelphia region. A percentage of sales of the craft beer supports TMF, one of the leading veteran service organizations in the country.
The beer is named in honor of Doylestown-native, 1stLt Travis Manion (USMC). In 2007, Travis was killed in Iraq while saving his wounded teammates. Today, his legacy lives on in the words he spoke before leaving for his final deployment, "If Not Me, Then Who..."
Guided by this ethos, Travis Manion Foundation develops programs, training opportunities, and events to empower veterans and military families of the fallen to pass on their values to the next generation.
Initially brewed in 2015 in small batches and exclusively for use at TMF events, the “If Not Me, Then Who…” brew’s great taste and smooth finish garnered an overwhelmingly positive reviews and a flood of requests to make the beer available across the region.
“We are completely honored to be working with Travis Manion Foundation on this project and are proud to honor one of our hometown heroes,” said Joe Modestine, Founder, Doylestown Brewing Company and President, Co-Hops Brewing and Cannery. “I often think of Travis and wonder if he would have liked the beer. I would have wanted his approval and hope that we did him proud, the way he has for so many others.”
