Celebrating the life and times of Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins (who would have been 100 years old this year), Sailor Jerry launched the “Hold Fast Tour” on Thursday June 9, 2011 in New York. The brand swiftly headed to Long Beach, CA for Ink n’ Iron last weekend and hits Boston today.

The purpose of the tour is to find people who embody Jerry’s steadfast spirit of rebelliousness and feature them in an upcoming series of mini-documentaries. Equipped with a fleet of Airstream trailers, Sailor Jerry will hit music festivals, biker rallies, and BBQ conventions – all in the name of honoring men and women who remain true to their own individual belief in the American spirit.

Visit SailorJerry.com for all the locations the Airstreams will hit and be sure to share your story (as well as raise a glass in memory of Mr. Collins).
