Pub dwellers can raise a pint and raise money for superstorm Sandy victims with the debut of FU Sandy draft.
The hybrid white ale (the FU stands for Forever Unloved, of course) is a special brew created by New Jersey's own Flying Fish Brewing Co. All proceeds are dedicated to Sandy-related charities, and Flying Fish hopes to raise at least $50,000 from beer and merchandise sales.
Flying Fish founder Gene Muller said the brewery "knew immediately that we wanted to do something to help" after Sandy struck, the Huffington Post reports. "Every single aspect of this beer, from the man-hours spent brewing it to the hops used to season it to the kegs that will contain it, has been donated so every cent brought in goes to superstorm Sandy victims," Muller said.
Twenty-two pubs throughout the region are now pouring the brew, described as a "50/50 blend of Two Row Pale Malt and American White Wheat. It is hopped with experimental hop ADHA 483, donated by the American Dwarf Hop Association, which has never been used in a beer before this one."
Flying Fish will soon have charitable merchandise available on its website. To grab a pint at a local pub, visit one of the locations below. But it's best to call ahead first as FU Sandy is going fast!
