Here is an interesting brand to take a look at.

Longtab Brewing is the vision of a band of Special Forces (Green Berets) brothers that were lucky enough to travel the world spreading freedom for almost two decades.  Besides the mission at hand, the members of SFODA 2023 sought out local beer in whatever country was under their feet.  The love of beer still keeps the original team in touch on a daily basis.

Many years later, the founder’s wife purchased him a beer kit. Of course, that kit failed to produce anything that even resembled beer (more like mole mixed with cough syrup), but through sheer determination and persistence the beer got better and better.

Longtab notes, “After sharing a few bottles with old teammates…the idea of Longtab was born. Our focus is on classic American styles, and American versions of some of the great international beers. We spend an enormous amount of time researching, brewing, re-brewing, and trying to perfect our recipes and the process of making a simple, great tasting beer. We believe in supporting American businesses, and find great value in the phrase “Made in America”. Longtab will inject that conviction every step of the way. Thus, all Longtab beers are made with 100% American grown ingredients. Even our Belgian or German inspired beers are made with 100% American grown hops and grains.”

The company sells numerous beers. Here are some of the great names they use: Pineland Oppression, Breacherbock, JFK, OSS and Jedburgh just to name a few. The main image for this article is of SFODA 2023 from 2002 in eastern Afghanistan.
