Red Tails

Red Ale

ABV: 5.1%

Tasting notes: Caramel Maltiness gives way to notes of toffee, buttery toast & roasted grains. No Hoppiness; clean with medium-dry finish.

About the Can Art: We felt this red ale would be a perfect representation of the Red Tail P-51 Mustangs flown by The Tuskegee Airmen during WWII. The Tuskegee Airmen were the first African-American military aviators in the United States Armed Forces.

When the pilots of the 332nd Fighter Group painted the tails of their P-47s red, the nickname “Red Tails” was coined. The red markings that distinguished the Tuskegee Airmen included red bands on the noses of P-51s as well as a red rudder; the P-51B and D Mustangs flew with similar color schemes, with red propeller spinners, yellow wing bands and all-red tail surfaces.

Raise this pint to these brave men who overcame many adversities to valiantly fight for our freedom. Thank you!
