Drink beer AND raise money for Hurricane Sandy relief? It’s not too good to be true. New Jersey brewery Flying Fish will release an ‘FU Sandy’ beer (the FU standing for ‘Forever Unloved,’ clearly) to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Sandy, which devastated the East Coast in October 2012.
The pale-ale is made with a half and half blend of two row pale malt and American white wheat hops and promises notes of mango and guava. One hundred kegs of the beer were brewed and will be distributed to bars in New Jersey and Philadelphia in February. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to help Hurricane Sandy victims and Flying Fish anticipates they will raise $50,000 for charity. They are currently accepting suggestions for a charity by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the spirit of giving, the beer was brewed entirely from donated ingredients. The hops from American Dwarf Hop Association are an experimental blend that has never been used before. Prost!
