Kimberly Rogers, A’86, along with Paige Haley have found a way to creatively combine their love for beer with a patriotic cause. The two entrepreneurs are the creators of 50 Back – The Brew of the Brave. Fifty percent of the proceeds acquired through purchases of this New England lager goes to charities that support the military, such as Homes for our Troops and USO. On their website, they describe the birth of their charitable idea:
50 Back Fine Beer Purveyors was born from the desire of founders Paige Haley, Kimberly Rogers, and others to say “Thank you” to all of the United States’ active troops and veterans and their families who have sacrificed so much to protect our nation and the freedom for which it stands.
