Fire Company Brew: Taste the Pride

I always wondered if there was a 9/11 tribute beer out there, and I finally found it.  This Fire Company Brew was created by Philip (PJ) Schrantz, a retired NYC firefighter (Brooklyn).  He relates his story on each bottle and on the package.  Basically, he volunteered at the WTC site (where he lost friends) and when he returned home, he decided to pursue this idea as a way to give back.  The packaging and bottle relate that a portion of the proceeds benefit fire, police and volunteer construction workers.  The packaging also gives more specifics on the organizations being supported.  The beer was brewed at Matt Brewing Company in Utica (NY).  There is a website listed too, www.firecompanybrew.com, which is not active.
