Survivor's Tale Pale Ale
A specialty brew crafted for the USS Indianapolis Survivor's Reunion on July 25, 2015 in Indianapolis, Indiana commemorating the 70th anniversary of the sinking of the USS Indianapolis.
The USS Indianapolis’ final U.S. port of call was Mare Island, before delivering parts for the A-bomb “Little Boy” to Tinian Island in the Pacific. Days later, the ship was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine. Of 1,196 men on board, 300 went down with the ship. The remainder were adrift for five days in shark-infested waters with no lifeboats, food, nor water. Only 317 men lived to tell the tale. We crafted this brew for the 2015 USS Indianapolis Survivors’ reunion, and have maintained a deep and ongoing relationship with the Survivors.
