Steelback Sends Award Winning Beer to Our Troops in Afghanistan

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 13, 2007) - In recognition of the sacrifices Canadian Force troops have made in Afghanistan Steelback Brewery CEO Frank D'Angelo is sending over a tractor trailer full of Steelback beer. Fresh off visits to CFB Edmonton and Petawawa respectively, D'Angelo is sympathetic to the plight of our soldiers abroad. "These men and women put themselves in harm's way every day to make this world a better place." said D'Angelo. "The least we can do is show our support and help them out whenever we can."

As everyone knows Canadian Forces have been stationed in Afghanistan since just after the 9/11 attacks with no troop pullout planned for the near future. "These brave Canadians have basically put their lives on hold to fight for something they believe in." says Frank. "We wanted our soldiers to taste a true award winning Canadian beer. Since they're not here, we'll send it over there." The shipment of Steelback has long been in the works and will be en route within the coming weeks with D'Angelo's compliments.
