In early February, New Jersey’s largest craft brewery, Flying Fish Brewing Company, 900 Kennedy Boulevard, Somerdale, will debut Forever Unloved (F.U.) Sandy, a hybrid wheat-pale ale, with 100% of the proceeds going to New Jersey victims of 2012’s Super Storm Sandy.

Founder Gene Muller and many Flying Fish employees are proud NJ residents; and they hope that by brewing and selling this special beer, they can help to support the renaissance of the heavily storm-damaged Jersey Shore.

“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,” Mr. Muller noted. “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 that every cent brought in goes to Super Storm Sandy victims.”

The F.U. Sandy brew will produce approximately 100 kegs of beer, sales of which will generate $50,000 directly towards a charity. The recipient of the F.U. Sandy funds will be a grassroots NJ-based charitable organization dedicated to Super Storm Sandy and chosen by Flying Fish fans via social media. To nominate a charity, visit the brewery on twitter @jerseyfreshale and on Facebook. The beer will be available beginning in February, exclusively on draught, throughout the New Jersey and Philadelphia region.

F.U. Sandy is brewed 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. Gene Muller and Head Brewer Casey Hughes expect a beautiful, tropical nose of mangoes and guavas that will accentuate the beer’s soft mouth-feel and contribute to a truly one-of-a-kind – much like their beloved Jersey Shore.

Bon Appétit!
