100% of the proceeds from sales of this beer will go to support New Jersey victims of Superstorm Sandy.
The brewery is looking for an organization to receive the funds. Brewery fans can nominate a charity, which should be based in New Jersey and have a grassroots approach, via Twitter @jerseyfreshale or on Facebook.
Fish Fans will select the recipient organization via social media in February.
“At Flying Fish, we proudly hail from the great state of New Jersey, so when tragedy struck, we knew immediately that we wanted to do something to help,” said founder Gene Muller. “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.”
F.U. Sandy is a hybrid wheat-pale ale made with 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. Muller and Head Brewer Casey Hughes expect a nose of mangoes and guavas.
F. U. Sandy will be available only on tap, throughout the New Jersey/Philadelphia region. The 100 kegs will generate $50,000 for the chosen charity.
