Devil Dog Brew

Founder/President Devil Dog Brew

Mustang Major (Ret.) Hank Salmans USMC Major Hank entered the Marine Corps in October of 1984 and, after an illustrious career, retired as a Mustang Major in 2005. Hank knows coffee. He loves it so much that while on missions as a Sergeant in Panama he learned the coffee roasting trade and speaks the language. After his retirement from the Corps, he decided in 2006 to start Devil Dog Brew as a way, to not only introduce the public to 100% Gourmet Arabica coffee roasted in the rich South American style, but to create a tool as a means to allow himself and the public to assist injured and families of fallen Marines in need with financial support. That mission continues today and has been expanded to include, not only his beloved Corps, but all Veterans and Community 1st Responders. Major Hank can be contacted at:
