After completely selling out of F. U. Sandy, Flying Fish is pleased to announce that they have raised $45,000 to be distributed to local charities benefitting Hurricane Sandy victims. After accepting nominations via social media, Habitat for Humanity’s New Jersey chapters, Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund, and Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey will each be receiving $15,000. When the beer was launched in February, Flying Fish was adamant about 100% of profit from sales of this beer be donated and are excited to follow through.
“New Jersey is one tight-knit state, and our fans and friends proved that with their overwhelming response to this special beer. From our wholesalers to the local bars and restaurants that made sure no keg went unsold to the dedicated drinkers who nominated our three exceptional beneficiaries, it’s obvious that NJ residents are committed to bringing their communities back, better than ever, after the storm.” Gene Muller, Flying Fish founder and president.
