Veterans Appreciation Day July 22 Sponsored by Northwest Michigan Works! and Bravo Zulu


Veterans and their families are invited to attend an event on July 22nd, 5:00 pm. to 8:00 p.m., at Bravo Zulu in Acme. 


Northwest Michigan Works! and Bravo Zulu Brewing are sponsoring a Veterans Appreciation Day July 22 at the microbrewery in Acme. The event will run from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and is for all current and former members of the military and their families.

Michigan Works! will have staff on hand to provide information and answer questions but there will not be a formal presentation or program. “This is a way for us to thank veterans for their service and to let them know we are there for them and their families if they need us,” said Kathy Taylor, Northwest Michigan Works! Operations Manager.

Bravo Zulu Brewing is owned and operated by local veteran Jeff Brooks. “This event is the kind of thing I intended Bravo Zulu to do,” said Brooks. “A place built by a vet to help other vets.”

The event will include free pizza and soft drinks courtesy of Northwest Michigan Works!. Bravo Zulu will be offering $2 pints. The microbrewery is located at 6060 US-31 North in Acme. For more information about the Veterans Appreciation Day call: 800-442-1074.
