USS Illinois SSN 786 Commissioning Celebration
October 29, 9 am, AHW/ISC Tasting Room
The commissioning ceremony for the USS Illinois (SSN 786), when they officially release the submarine to the Navy to begin service, is on October 29. Our Illinois Sparkling Co. Blend 786 is going to be served at two key celebrations: the Chairman’s Reception the night before the event and again following the commissioning. We are also celebrating at the Tasting Room on that day! As the ceremony takes place in Groton, CT, we are going to be live streaming on a large screen at 10 am. Join us in a Blend 786 toast when we hear the final words of the commissioning: "Bring this ship to life!" And because it is first thing in the morning, we are offering free coffee cake that pairs nicely with Blend 786. Blend 786 will also be available by the bottle. For each bottle sold, $5 is donated to the USS Illinois commissioning committee, who provides support for submarine crew members in times of need. The USS Illinois commissioning committee is also letting us borrow the model of the USS Illinois to have on display for the event. Come celebrate with us! Come celebrate with us!
