WE felt the Red Ale would be a perfect representation of the Red Tail P-51 Mustangs flown by The Tuskegee Airmen during WWII. The Tuskegee Airmen were the first African-American military aviators in the United States Armed Forces.
When the pilots of the 332nd Fighter Group painted the tails of their P-47s red, the nickname “Red Tails” was coined. The red markings that distinguished the Tuskegee Airmen included red bands on the noses of P-51s as well as a red rudder; the P-51B and D Mustangs flew with similar color schemes, with red propeller spinners, yellow wing bands and all-red tail surfaces.
Raise this pint to these brave men who overcame many adversities to valiantly fight for our freedom.
