Pour One Forward - Honoring our Military this Holiday Weekend.

Many of you know, I am a proud Marine Mom, so when Applebee's told me that select locations would be participating in the Pour One Forward Program, I wanted to share with all of you.  I am sure we all know someone who is either serving in our military or someone who has served.  If you are like me, those people may not be closeby (or old enough) to enjoy a "thank you" drink from you.  

So we can do the next best thing and

Pour One Forward 

How it works: 

Visit one of the participating Applebee's locations:
Holland: 3134 Beeline Road, Holland, 49423
Jackson: 1706 W Michigan Ave, Westwood Mall, Jackson, 49202
Chesterfield: 27851 23 Mile Road, Chesterfield, 48051
Ypsilanti: 3819 Carpenter Road, Ypsilanti, 48197
Alpine: 3851 Alpine Ave NW, Comstock Park, 49321

Now through July 5th you can buy one (1) Boston Lager and include your "Thank you" written on a postcard provided by Applebee's.
You may also buy two Boston Lagers, one to enjoy (as long as you are old enough to drink:) ) and one to leave for a military member to enjoy, so you can "share" the experience.  

If the drinker posts a photo of their thank you note to social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) with the hashtag #PourOneForward Samuel Adams will donate $1 to American Dream U (http://americandreamu.org/).

Members of the Military and Veterans that are interested in claiming one of the free beers just have to mention it to their bartender or server and they will be happy to see if there are any to be claimed. 

American Dream U is a national nonprofit working with soon-to-retire soldiers and military spouses to help them find their next professional “mission” through their dream job or by starting their own business.
