Meet the Ladies.

Are you there, beer? It's me, Hayley.

What beer pairs best with cleaning up after Sandy?


It’s been nearly four months since Hurricane Superstorm Sandy and small specs of hope are begining to emerge for the monstrous piles of rubble and sand. One in particular to note is this collab’ brew between Brewery Ommegang and Barrier Brewing.

Barrier Brewer Craig Frymark says it all,

“That’s exactly the kind of beer I’d like to drink while I’m cleaning up our brewery.” - WBNG-TV

I couldn’t agree more. Light, with just enough hoppyness to balance the strong Belgiany-ness that is Ommegang’s signature. Bonus: you don’t have to be shoveling sand while drinking this beer to help with the relief efforts. All proceeds from this delicious brew go directly towards helping Barrier Brewing get back on their feet. Search here to find where Barrier Relief is pouring near you and grab a pint!
