Founding Fathers Brewing Co. to sponsor party in Charlotte

Founding Fathers Brewing Co., which recently teamed up with The American Legion to support military families, will sponsor a party after the Legion’s 96th National Convention Parade in Charlotte, N.C., on Aug. 24, brought to attendees by the Department of North Carolina.

The party is from 5-8 p.m. in the parking lot across from the Charlotte Convention Center – adjacent to the endpoint of the parade at North Tryon and Stonewall streets. Live entertainment will be provided by The Hickabillies, a band formed by servicemembers during their deployment to Iraq. Several area food trucks will also be available to purchase items from.

Founding Fathers will have a booth in the Charlotte Convention Center Exhibit Hall (Hall B), with chances to win a coupon for a Founding Fathers beer redeemable at the party Sunday evening.

Details of the party are subject to change.


  1. I still get overwhelmed with the stories that our older veterans (WWII, Korea, Vietnam) and more, tell, at any day and time, when visiting our American Legion Post #110, Port Charlotte, Florida.These men and women are incredible Historians, with their stories. I sit in total awe of every one of them and the tales they tell. Such a vibrant Post, due to our Fabulous Team of Officers over the past few years and all the things that they have implemented while serving our Post. This year, we've joined nearly all of the Veteran Service Organizations in our area (S.W. Florida), to raise money to build a (1/2 size of the original) Vietnam Veteran's Memorial in Washington, D.C., in our town of Punta Gorda. What an incredible bunch of Veterans we have here in our area. It takes your breath away.. and speeds your heart, while our Honor Guard Stands in Salute to any and all Veteran's we are called to Honor at their passing. These are the kinds of things I joined this post 22 years ago, and have come to know. I did not have anywhere near a stellar U.S.N. career, but when I did Volunteer, It was back at the tail end of The Vietnam War, and there were only 4 persons from our town H.S. that entered the services. We all had one thing in common: To give back what we believed we owed our Country, and the men and women who served before us, enabling our freedoms to stand true. God Bless American. "For God and Country!!!"
