BACKWARD FLAG BREWING, FORKED RIVER, NJ: VETERAN OWNED AND RUN BY VETERANS. For centuries, the American military have given all for their country. The fine group of veterans at Backward Flag Brewing continue to give to their community by serving some of the best craft beer around. This was my first visit to the Brewery, so what better way to experience what they had to offer than by having a flight. I shared a flight of 4 (2 IPAs and 2 stouts) with my dad and we immediately knew they were onto something special. If you are a veteran or a first responder, you may be entitled up to a 25% discount. So what are you waiting for, stop by and say hi to the proud veterans brewing some great craft beer in Ocean County, NJ.
Backward Flag was founded in 2015 by Staff Sergeant Torie Fisher who was nearing the end of her military career and was looking to do something different. After 2 tours of duty in Iraq, she proudly served her country but knew it was time for a change. So Torie, being a home brewer, decided to combine her love of craft beer with the love of her veteran community and the idea of Backward Flag was born. Currently it is the only female veteran-owned brewery in the country. 👍
So why the name "Backward Flag" for a brewery? To a civilian like myself, it may not be obvious, but just ask any Veteran and they will proudly tell you. The idea behind the backward American flag on military uniforms is to make it look as though the flag is flying in the breeze as the person wearing it moves forward. In other words, if the flag were not reversed, the soldier - or vehicle transporting soldiers - might appear to be moving backwards (or "retreating"). This makes perfect sense, since the American military never retreats and neither does Torie Fisher!!! Cheers to the US military and cheers to Torie and all of the fine folks at Backward Flag Brewing.
