Two months after a Worcester fire lieutenant was killed in the line of duty, a brewery in the Massachusetts city has created a beer in his honor.

Wormtown Brewery is paying tribute to Lt. Jason Menard with its new beer, aptly called "Worcester's Bravest." And even though the brewery didn't open until noon Friday, a line wrapped around the building starting at 10:45 a.m.

The beer, sold on tap and by the pack, took several weeks to make.
