New beer to honor fallen police officer

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A new beer will honor the legacy of a fallen West Michigan police officer.

Boatyard Brewing Company just announced that it worked with friends and fellow officers of Eric Zapata to brew EZ Ale.

They'll serve an experimental batch on Christmas Eve, and hope to officially launch EZ Ale on April 19.

The beer will raise money for the Eric Zapata Foundation.

Zapata was gunned down while responding to a shots fired call in Kalamazoo's Edison neighborhood in April of 2011.

The foundation raises money for scholarships for aspiring police officers.
