On December 04, 2012 eight breweries from Long Island, NY collaborated together on an IPA using a bag of their own malted barley for the base of the beer to raise money to help Barrier Brewing co. rebuild their brewing facility after suffering over $100,000 in flood damages from Hurricane Sandy. The remaining profits from this beer will be donated to Long Island Cares, Inc.

Participating Breweries:

Barrier Brewing Company
Blind Bat Brewery
Blue Point Brewing Company
Great South Bay Brewery
Greenport Harbor Brewing Company
Long Ireland Beer Company
Port Jeff Brewing Company
Spider Bite Beer Company

“Thanks for helping us rebuild Long Island…with beer.”

Sandy Relief Beer started as a video project by Matt Furman and Niko Krommydas, but quickly morphed into a collaborative relief effort by eight local breweries after Hurricane Sandy devastated Long Island and destroyed Barrier Brewing Company in Oceanside. The participants gathered at Blue Point Brewing Company on December 04, 2012 and brewed Surge Protector IPA, an India Pale Ale, to raise proceeds for victims of Hurricane Sandy and the recovering brewery. Each brewery donated an ingredient for Surge Protector IPA, exhibiting the solidarity of Long Island’s beer community. –
