Talk about a fun way to raise some money for a good cause.
In response to the devastation surrounding Hurricane Sandy, the New Jersey-based Flying Fish Brewing Company has developed a hybrid wheat-pale ale dubbed “Forever Unloved (F.U.) Sandy” that they plan to debut in early February, according to an article in BeerPulse.com.
Per the name, all proceeds from sales will go to a grassroots New Jersey charity committed to Sandy relief (as chosen by Flying Fish fans on the company’s social media site).
The company will produce about 100 kegs of the F.U. Sandy beer, which is brewed with a 50/50 blend of Two Row Pale Malt and American White Wheat with a dash of experiment hop ADHA 483. According to brewery founder Gene Muller and head brewer Casey Hughes, the ADHA 483, which has never been used in a beer before, will endow the drink with a tropical mangoes and guavas taste.
