FU Sandy beer returns - in bottles!

Good news from the folks at Flying Fish in New Jersey: FU Sandy beer is returning! First brewed as a limited, one-time only beer to raise funds for Hurricane Sandy relief, FU Sandy was a wheat/pale ale hybrid that seemed as if it would have made a nice, zesty summer beer. Only about 100 kegs were made, and everywhere it was tapped those kegs were gone the same day. All proceeds went to Sandy relief.

Demand and interest was high. People wanted more. And now Flying Fish is delivering.

According to Flying Fish, "We're going to brew one batch of Sandy in kegs and then about 1,000 cases in the 750 ml champagne bottles that the Exit series beers come in.  We will continue our fundraising efforts by earmarking a portion of these proceeds to add to the $45,000 we've already donated to the rebuilding efforts."

Needless to say given my experience with Hurricane Sandy, the beer is close to my heart.

The beer will be available in June.
