Flying Fish Brewing to Release F. U. Sandy Beer for Charity

Flying Fish Brewing to Release F. U. Sandy Beer for Charity

New Jersey was hit hard last year during Superstorm Sandy. To assist their seaside state-mates with recovery efforts, Flying Fish Brewing Co. founder Gene Muller and head brewer Casey Hughes have crafted a hybrid wheat beer/pale ale, from which all proceeds will go directly to charity. The name of the beer? Forever Unloved Sandy, which shortens easily into the more cheeky “F. U.”

A 100-keg batch is due to be released this February, and will be available on draft only in the New Jersey and Philadelphia region. Sales of the beer will generate $50,000, which will be made available to a grassroots, NJ-based nonprofit chosen by Flying Fish fans via social media.

The beer itself is made with a half-and-half blend of two row pale malt and American white wheat. The hops were donated by the American Dwarf Hop Association, and are an experimental blend never before used in a beer. Hughes’ tasting notes promise a tropical nose full of mangos and guavas.

Stay tuned for more information on when you’ll get a chance to taste F. U., as well as how to vote on the charity of choice.
