UNDATED - Starting tomorrow (Thursday) you can help a veteran by drinking beer.

The Veteran Beer Company will begin selling their two varieties of beer throughout much of Minnesota.

Company spokesman Josh Ray says they bottle and brew the beer at the Third Street Brewhouse facility in Cold Spring.

Bernick's has been hired to distribute the beer.

Despite the fact that the beer is made in Minnesota, until now it's only been available in Illinois and Indiana.  The company headquarters is in Chicago.

The Veteran Beer Company was started by disabled veterans, they only employ veterans, and 10 percent of their net profits go to veteran charities.
