In early February, Flying Fish Brewing is debuting Forever Unloved (F.U.) Sandy, a hybrid wheat-pale ale with 100% of the proceeds going to New Jersey victims of hurricane Sandy.
Flying Fish founder Gene Muller says that “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. 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.”
Look for the draft only beer throughout New Jersey and Philadelphia in early February.
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. According to Muller and head brewer Casey Hughes, the beer should have a tropical nose of mangoes and guavas that will accentuate the beer’s soft mouthfeel.
