Long Island Breweries to Launch Sandy-Relief Beer

A beer brewed for a cause -- to help those still recovering from superstorm Sandy -- will flow from the taps at Long Island bars next week. The beer, an India pale ale named Surge Protector, is the result of a collaboration by eight Long Island craft breweries. All proceeds from sales of the brew will be donated to Long Island Cares and Barrier Brewing Co. -- an Oceanside microbrewery that was destroyed by Sandy. (Newsday)
