GRAND RAPIDS (WKZO) -- A Grand Rapids brewery is celebrating the christening of the USS Gerald R. Ford with a special label beer.

Founders Brewing Company is shipping about forty cases of a special edition pale ale to Virginia for the ceremonial christening of the nation's newest aircraft carrier.  The beer will be served at the private ceremony this weekend.  It will also be sold on draft with a commemorative postcard at several locations in Newport News, Virginia this week.

The carrier was named for the 38th president based on his service in the Pacific Theater during World War Two.
