Superstorm Sandy Fundraiser In a Bottle

Posted: Updated:
Somerdale, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

There is something that everyone has been wanting to say ever since Superstorm Sandy ravaged the Garden State. In fact, New Jersey Micro-brewery, Flying Fish, did exactly that! They created a beer fundraiser called, “F.U. Sandy”.

It's not exactly what you think it means! The slogan stands for Forever Unloved Sandy and is on the label of this tasty beer. Flying Fish actually freshly brews this beer, bottles it, and distributes it all over the Garden State. Forever Unloved is brewed specifically to raise money for this cause and all of the proceeds are going to Hurricane Sandy Relief.

Co-Founder of Flying Fish, Robin Tama is impressed with how well this fundraiser has done in the past, and has high hopes it will continue to succeed in the future.

"Today we have already raised $75,000, and that was in our first packaging of the product. We brought it out again this year, it has just gone on the market so I don't know what our proceeds will be at this point but we are hoping to match them," She said.

Brewery Manager, Barry Holsten explains that there is specific hops in this beer, making it unlike any other beer.

"It was an experimental hop that was just a number when we received it and we put it into the beer and it became a unique product just for New Jersey," he said.

Be careful when drinking F.U. Sandy because the alcohol percentage is a little higher than your average beer! This beer is known for its bitter after-taste, but then again, it seems appropriate because Hurricane Sandy left a bitter taste in all of our mouths as well!
