Brick House Tavern + Tap and Operation Homefront announced today they are bringing back their very successful “Taste Freedom” campaign to honor our nation’s military service men and women and their families. Brick House Tavern + Tap prides itself in celebrating Americans who do extraordinary things, specifically the military’s efforts who go above and beyond the call of duty every day. Last year, “Taste Freedom,” the first of its kind campaign in the restaurant industry, generated more than $136,000 for Operation Homefront, the national nonprofit that provides emergency financial and other assistance to the families of service members and wounded warriors. This year, Brick House Tavern + Tap aims to exceed that goal with the help and patriotism of their very generous guests.
